Moka Express

The moka pot, also known as a caffettiera or macchinetta ("small machine"), is a stove top espresso coffee maker, based on the principle of preparing coffee with steam pressurized water. First patented by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933, his company Bialetti continues to produce the same model known as the "Moka Express".

I didn't realize that the moka express could be considered 'dieselpunk' ! :)
I own one and I still use it every day.
As far as I know, it is still in production today.

I've got one, too.
For me it's a Dieselpunk era artifact - just like Campari glass designed by Fortunato Depero.
