Designed and made in Italy.
Want to make excellent coffee at home that tastes just like the coffee in your favourite Italian bar? Our stylish Moka coffee pots combine Italian design with great functionality! If you have never tried them before a Moka Pot or caffettiera is an Italian steam-based stove top espresso maker that produces a dark coffee almost as strong as that from a conventional espresso maker found in the best Italian bars. Moka coffee is produced using only steam's natural pressure. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to produce great espresso, this is the pot and technique for you!
Tips for using your Moka Pot
Before using your Moka Pot for the first time, fill the bottom chamber with cool fresh water up to the level of the pressure relief valve. Put some unwanted old used coffee grounds in the filter basket, attach the top, and allow it to brew. The first pot of coffee you brew in the pot should be thrown away. The idea is just to clean the machine out before using it for the first time and to make sure the pressure relief valve is working ok.
Fill the bottom chamber with water, up to the level of the safety valve. Hot water is better and quicker but cold is fine too.
Put the filter basket inside and fill it with ground coffee until it is level, don't press the coffee down.
Screw the top section onto the bottom section of the pot and place it on the stove on medium to medium-high heat. When hot, the air and water trapped inside the bottom tank expand due to the heat being applied the device. As this happens, it pushes the hot water up a tube, through the coffee, and out of the spout into the top chamber of the pot.
When all of the water has been drawn up and the pot starts to make a gurgling noise, the coffee is ready to pour (approximately 4 to 5 minutes). Remove the Moka pot from the heat. Pour into an espresso cup or mix with hot milk to make café latte.
