Moka Express stovetop espresso maker. In 1919 Alfonso Bialetti opened a workshop in Crusinallo, Italy to make semi-finished goods in aluminium, which turned into a studio for designing and producing finished items using shell moulding. However, it was in 1933 when he invented the MOKA Express that the Bialetti story really began.
