Mocha or Espresso?
The espresso is a Made in Italy invention that is owed to Angelo Moriondo from Turin, who at the end of the 19th century developed the first coffee making machines. At the start of the 20th century, Luigi Bezzerra patented the device, officially kicking off its diffusion. Preparing an espresso is actually quite simple, considering it was created to make the process faster. The boiling water passes through a container with a filter that where the ground coffee powder is stored.
Mocha coffee is usually prepared at home in the classic manual aluminum coffee machine. It Is the coffee of excellence, the one preferred by most Italians. It is often simply called mocha, taking the name of the machine (invented by Alfonso Bialetti), with which it is prepared. Mocha coffee is also very easy to prepare: first you must fill its lower reservoir pot with water to the rim, then place the metal filter in it and fill the filter with ground mocha beans (they are more coarse than espresso beans), and twist on the top part of the coffeemaker. Finally, place it on the stove top and leave it on until the coffee boils comes out through the filter, filling the top part entirely.
