The Neapolitan flip coffee pot
, or cuccumella, was invented in 1819 by a Frenchman and then perfected in Naples. Unlike a normal coffee maker, when the water warms up, the coffee maker must be turned upside down, so that the water flows through the ground coffee, placed in the appropriate filter, and coffee pours into the jug.
The 4-cup Neapolitan Ilsa coffee maker (height 21 cm; diameter 8 cm) dates back to the 40s or 50s.
The 1-cup ‘La Signora Caffettiera’ by Meazza is 15 cm tall, with a 7 cm diameter. Made in the 1960s.
