Morondo was born in Turin, Italy, on June 6, 1851, to a family of businessmen who never stopped making new ideas or plans. His grandfather founded a liquor production company that was passed on to his son (Angelo’s father), who later built the popular chocolate company “Morindo and Garriglio” with his brother and cousin.Read also – What caste controversy does Google find itself in?

Despite the popularity of coffee in Italy, disadvantaged consumers spent a lot of time waiting for coffee to be made.

After directly overseeing the mechanic to build his invention, Morondo presented his espresso machine at the General Expo in Turin in 1884, where it was awarded the Bronze Medal.

The machine consisted of a large boiler that pushed the hot water through the coffee ground bed, producing a second boiler steam that would flash the coffee bed and complete the brew.

He received a patent, “New Steam Machines for the Economic and Quick Confection of Coffee Drinks, Method ‘A. Morindo” In the years following, Morindo continued to improve and patent his invention.
