As usual, the internet giant, Google, mentions a theme in its well-known “Doodle.” Last June, the company dedicated a space for coffee fans around the world. It recalled the birth of the Italian Angelo Moriondo 171 years ago, the inventor of the famous Italian espresso machine.
Discover who was the driving force behind the espresso
Moriondo invented this artifact and patented the idea of the first espresso machine known in the world. Today, it has become a practical tool, capable of speeding up the preparation of coffee and preparing several cups at the same time.
Moriondo was born in Turin on 6 June 1851, 171 years ago. He died on 31 May 1914 at the age of 62. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and, over time, founded his own liquor company. Giacomo, the inventor’s son, inherited much of his estate and later founded the company “Moriondo and Gariglio” together with his brother and cousin.
The Google doodle changed its image to honor Moriondo’s ingenuity by painting the doodle with different shades of coffee and the image of an espresso machine. This invention marked a new technological era in the coffee industry, immersing us in a universe of flavors, colors, and aromas that our senses recognize from childhood to old age.
