Leading up to World War II, drinking coffee was an important part of Naples. Coffee came to Naples late compared to other major Italian cities. When it first arrived in the late eighteenth century, in fact, the superstitious population considered coffee to be bad luck. Now, Naples is one of the coffee culture capitals of the world. The Napoletano is a domestic coffee maker that is comprised of three sections. The bottom is filled with water; the middle contains finely ground coffee, and the top is an upside-down serving pot. After the water is boiled on a stove, the entire contraption is flipped over to let the water filter through the grounds into the pot. While the 1901 invention of the espresso machine revolutionized the public consumption of coffee in Italy, the technology behind domestic preparation remained basically unchanged until after World War II. For many Neapolitans, it remains the preferred preparation method.
