No other than Google, the go-to search engine giant, commemorates countless occasions and people, from holidays to historical figures.
On the search engine's website, the Doodle temporarily replaces the original logo.
The man behind what we know today as espresso machines are honored this time around. Mariondo would not have made it possible to take a shot of coffee.
Espresso is most likely to be familiar to coffee lovers and enthusiasts who enjoy making a cup of joe.
Starbucks' cold drinks and classical lattes both begin with a shot of espresso.
Historically, espresso coffee making was not as sophisticated as it is today. It used to be that coffee drinkers had no idea what an espresso shot would taste like.
After an Italian named Angelo Mariondo invented the first espresso machine, everything changed.
Despite the prevalence of espresso machines these days, most coffee drinkers are not familiar with the man behind them.
According to Smithsonian Magazine, Moriondo, an Italian, patented the first-ever espresso machine, which was the first espresso maker to use both steam and water simultaneously.
According to the patent issued long ago in 1884, it is a 'new steam machinery for the economical and instantaneous confection of coffee beverage.'
Moriondo appears to have been lowkey, there are no pictures of his machine or branding bearing his name apart from the patent filing.
However, thanks to the patent document, his work of art, which revolutionized coffee making, can be attributed correctly to him.
9to5Google recently reported that the Italian inventor of the espresso machine has not been forgotten.
The Google Doodle honored Moriondo's contribution to creating the first espresso machine, which has significantly evolved since then.
In celebration of Moriondo's 171st birthday, the search engine is honoring his contribution to coffee making.
The animated Doodle of coffee Stains was created by Olivia When in honor of the inventor of the espresso machine.
Based on the patent, the Doodle shows how the coffee machine looks.
