Not to reinforce any stereotypes out there, but being Italian I love to take my coffee “espresso“, and though I rarely get to use one, I always liked the moka. Eventually it just seemed natural to model one (I’m weird that way).
I started with the cups first, which clearly didn’t take too long as they are really simple. I used a nice minimalistic texture to give a nice relaxing design to them.
The moka is where I had more fun, again not too hard, but I wanted to model every detail, so I started focusing on the coils of the bottom part, the beak and the cap mechanics (where the coffee actually comes out of). The only reason I didn’t model the filter is I hadn’t tought of actually rendering the moka open.
