While espresso was extraordinarily in style in Italy, individuals spent lots of time ready for the espresso to brew. Moriondo got here to the rescue of the shoppers and figured that making a number of cups of espresso directly would enable him to serve extra prospects at a quicker tempo, giving him an edge over his opponents, Google mentioned in a blogpost.

Moriondo patented the primary identified espresso machine. “The machine consisted of a big boiler that pushed heated water by means of a mattress of espresso grounds, with a second boiler producing steam that may flash the mattress of espresso and full the brew,” it mentioned.

Moriondo offered his espresso machine on the General Expo of Turin in 1884, the place it was awarded the bronze medal. He obtained a patent titled, “New steam equipment for the financial and instantaneous confection of espresso beverage, technique”.

Born to a household of entrepreneurs in Italy in 1851, Moriondo by no means stopped brewing new concepts or tasks. His grandfather based a liquor manufacturing firm that was handed down to his son (Angelo’s father), who himself would later construct the favored chocolate firm, “Moriondo and Gariglio” alongside his brother and cousin.
