ISO Neapolitan coffee Maker

While watching an episode of Lidia's Italy, Lidia was showcasing different coffee preparation methods found in Italy. One method which struck me as interesting (and which I had never seen before) was the Neapolitan style coffee maker.

This is a also called a Flip Coffee Pot.

Any idea where someone may find such a device? I'm guessing Little Italy maybe a good start (Dante comes to mind). But rather than wandering the various shops, I was hoping that someone might have spotted them before.

  1. Hmmm, maybe Faema in Little Italy? Havent been there in awhile, so i'm not promising anything.

    1. I was introduced to caffe Napoletana after Sunday dinner while visiting friends in Italy last spring. Intrigued, I set out to find a pot in Montreal this summer as a gift for my parents. I ended up finding one at Milano in Little Italy. In the same section where they had dozens of Moka pots, there was one lonely Napoletana pot which I purchased for maybe $30. Later, I saw one in the window of the shop that sells coffee-making equipment further up St. Laurent toward Jean-Talon. That one was a bit fancier, like the one in your picture.

      I like espresso from the Napoletana pot but I'd say it's not as strong as from a Moka pot, which was invented later. Both are nice to have around.
