Pictured above are great softies by Laura Contemori. Laura sent me the pic of the whale and a link to her blog which I then visited. There I found the link to her etsy shop where I found this fab Mokka machine! I have been using one of these to make my morning coffee for the past 30 years. About two months ago I actually bought a fancy coffee maker, you know espresso, steamed milk etc....it worked for about a week and was sent back to the manufacturer so here I am once again using my dependable Mokka machine! These are great, Laura!
