It’s a sleek, modern mid-century icon that has the classic style we all treasure – it’s the Atomic.

On sorrentina’s website, www.sorrentinacoffee.com he gives us a great history on the Atomic here’s a tidbit – “Mid–twentieth–century Milan designer Giordano Robbiati achieved a spiritual union between form and function when he devised a new type of coffee maker in the late 1940’s”.
