Angelo Moriondo was an Italian Inventor who invented the espresso coffee machine.
This machine used for both steaming and boiling water in order to effectively brew coffee.
Moriondo's grandfather founded a liqueur producing company.
His father Giacomo founded a chocolate company named Moriondo and Gariglio.
Moriondo got the bronze medal by presenting his invention at the General Expo of Turin in 1884.
According to Ian Bersten the machine is the first Italian bar machine that controlled the supply of steam and water separately through the coffee.
The machine was one of the earliest discoverers of the espresso machine.
