A Tribute To Angelo Moriondo
Moriondo was born in Turin, Italy. He was born into an entrepreneurial family and was able to start his own liquor manufacturing company in his youth. He also founded the Moriondo and Galio chocolate company, which is still one of the world’s most popular sweets. In the early 1900s, Italy was the place to drink coffee, but it was not always an easy task. The Italians had to wait long hours to drink a cup of coffee. However, with the invention of the espresso machine, people could enjoy a cup of coffee at their leisure.
Moriondo purchased two establishments to make his espresso machine, including the Grand-Hotel Ligure in the Piazza Carlo Felice, and the American Bar in the Galleria Nazionale. He hoped to improve upon his original design by brewing more cups of coffee at one time, which would allow him to serve more customers faster. His machine won a bronze medal at the Turin General Expo, but he never made it into an industrial scale.
