The Neapolitan coffee: method and machine
Wrote at 10:49 by Stefano Urso in: Coffee Quality,
This method involves using a special tin coffeepot called "Neapolitan", consisting of two cylinders separated by a filter basket where you place the coffee. The basket of the Neapolitan machine has to be filled with finely dark roasted ground coffee; water should be poured into the bottom of the machine.
The section of the coffeepot with the water inside is in contact with the fire. When the water is boiling the Neapolitan machine can be removed from the heat and quickly reversed to allow hot water to filter into the filter basket. The hot water passes through the coffee powder (extracting aroma, taste and smell) and collects into the container provided with a spout. At this point the coffee can be served.
