This One-Inch Pot Actually Brews Coffee

By Jamie Condliffe on at

This sterling silver coffee pot, standing less than an inch tall, is actually capable of brewing your morning fix. That is, of course, if you don't need much caffeine to start your day.

Painstakingly created over two months by 54-year-old Italian goldsmith Pietro Marmo, it's made up of five parts: a heater, the pot itself, two filters and a gasket. He claims it holds ten drops of water — though I'm not sure how big his drops are — but the resulting brew is apparently about the same volume as a teardrop. You'll need a very small cup to match.
