A Neapolitan Coffee Experience

A Hidden Gem Of Italian Coffee Makers

I was fascinated with this coffee maker for a number of years before I convinced my wife to buy me one for Christmas. It was a used one off of eBay, and at the time I couldn’t have been more excited. I had assumed a couple of things that turned out to be incorrect. First, that these were no longer manufactured and second, you would need a REALLY strong coffee to enjoy an authentic experience.

Regarding the flip coffee pot (called a caffettiera in Italian), I was happy to learn that they are still manufactured, and there are even different types (aluminum, stainless steel and induction) available. We used to sell these at Coffee In Italia and we encourage you to take a look around and see if you might be able to find one, if you are interested.

Learn More About Naples And Its Coffee

I also had the preconceived notion that anything popular in Naples would be rough around the edges. To be more specific, when you read about travelling to Naples, you run across descriptions that include: high-crime, poverty, crazy, chaotic, pick-pockets, etc. While I haven’t yet experienced the city for myself (soon, though), I assumed that the coffee would be strong, even by Italian standards. To my surprise, the Kimbo Coffee we enjoy is smooth and delicious, and is currently my favorite. When you combine that with the Napolitana Caffettiera, I believe you can have a truly authentic experience from your own kitchen.
