This stovetop moka express is used for making rich, authentic espresso. Made of aluminum, its distinctive 8-sided shape diffuses heat perfectly, releasing a wonderful aroma.
Bialetti is the world's most recognized coffee company - in fact, 90 percent of families in Italy own a Bialetti product. Its quality and authenticity have expanded from the original Moka Express to dozens of coffee makers used for producing flavorful Italian coffees.
Pour water in the boiler. Insert the funnel-shaped metal filter into the base. Add finely ground coffee to the filter. Screw the upper section tightly on the base. Place the pot on a heat source until the water is brought close to boiling point creating steam in the boiler. A gasket ensures a tightly closed unit and allows for pressure to safely build up in the lower section, where a safety valve provides a necessary release in case this pressure should get too high (with clean filters, that should not happen).
The steam eventually reaches a high enough pressure to gradually force the surrounding boiling water up the funnel through the coffee powder and into the upper chamber where the coffee is collected. When the lower chamber is almost empty, steam bubbles mix with the upstreaming water, producing a characteristic gurgling noise.
As with percolators, the pot should not be left on the stove so long that the coffee boils. Ideally, with a little practice, it should be removed from the heat before it actually starts gurgling--usually, when only about half of the top chamber has been filled.
This makes the best espresso. It more than enough for a morning and then an afternoon cup. Build is good, clean up is easy. Just one thing, it's a guessing game when the coffee is completely brewed.
fast, easy to use and clean; works fine on my induction/ceramic burners
prepared excellent coffee
I read tons of reviews before making my purchase, and watched YouTube videos on how to use the Moka Pot...it is unbelievably simple and I can't believe I didn't buy one years ago! And it will look beautiful in my kitchen. If you are looking for a cup of strong coffee, I recommend ordering the 6 cup size, as the "cups" are espresso-sized and not standard coffee cup size. I bought this instead of a Keurig...one third the price AND made in Italy instead of China! And I can still make a cup of coffee in about the same amount of time.
My husband has been hooked on the McDonalds mochas and spending alot of money every week in the drive thru window. He no longer has to make that stop because this product makes that coffee drink he loves. Just a few extra steps after the espresso is done and we have duplicated that mocha at home. Easy to care for too. Just wipe clean with plain old water and you're ready to go again.
