I purchased a cool little moka pot yesterday at Value Village. I've tried to find out more about it, but there are none like it on Google images or Ebay. It is a two cup aluminum unit, but the cool part is the top half. The lid is a cup warmer, and the brew flows through the handle and flows up and into the warm cup! There are no manufacturers marks on it anywhere. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Not that unusual, though this is the first (in my very short coffee experience) I've seen of that one. What a cool find.
REI "outdoor" stores have a couple in the same style. This is a one (demitasse) cup, they also have a four-cup size. Your spout seems sturdier than these versions, which is their biggest weakness when they're rolling around in a backpack.
I think it's Bialetti who has a double spout version.
