NAPLES AND THE TYPICAL CUCCUMA
Naples is a splendid and enigmatic city, full of history and life.
It surprises with its beauty, its art and contrasts. You feel its unique vibes in every alley and district.
The city is full of scents, splendid panoramas, melodies, music and traditions.
Without a doubt, one of the most important traditions is the art of preparing coffee with the typical Neapolitan coffee maker: the cuccuma (sometimes also called cuccumella).
Preparing coffee with the Neapolitan cuccuma means retracing a homemade ritual celebrated by many illustrious Neapolitans.
The cuccuma is a special coffee maker that produces a bodied coffee with a full taste. Invented in Naples in 1691, it was a huge success in Italy and the only way to prepare coffee until the 1930s, when the mocha was patented.
