Thank the Australians for reintroducing a design classic from Italy: the Sorrentina espresso maker, designed by Giordano Robbiati, and otherwise known as The Atomic. Milanese-born Robbiati created the iconic Atomic coffee maker in the late 1940s; his machine produces up to six espresso shots and steams and froths milk. Australian company Ikon Exports recently came out with a premium reproduction of Robbiati's patented coffee machine, manufactured to the same dimensions and standards. In the US, Taylor & Ng is the exclusive retailer. Above: Made of polished alloy and Bakelite, the is $450 AU (approximately $413 US) the Sorrentina Coffee , which ships to the US. In the US, the Sorrentina Atomic Coffee Maker is $395 from Taylor & Ng. N.B.: This post is an update; the original ran on April 1, 2008
