Bialetti made the primary stopover espresso back in 1933, and it is still using the right same patented Moka pot design.
The firm may make many different models now, but the real Bialetti Moka Express stopover Espresso maker is still the very top one you can buy.
Bialetti is made in Italy
Unlike the affordable imitations you will find in kitchen stores, the Bialetti is made right in Italy with care and craftsmanship.
Although it is produced of aluminium and not stainless steel, it is a durable, a strong little machine that will last you a lifetime.
The aluminium pot has an 8 sided base that diffuses heat equally, the outcome in evenly brewed coffee with a tasty rich flavour.
Moka ground coffee
To make coffee, you just fill the base up to the waterline, spoon Moka ground coffee into the tunnel, and twist the top closed securely over the water and grounds.
Put a gas burner on low so the flame does not go outside of the base pot and burn the handle.
You can also use it on an electric stove, just be alert to place the handle well away from the heating element.
Using less heat make sure that your coffee does not burn, either.
A few minutes later, you will hear the pot start to gurgle as the steam-pressured boiling water passes via the grounds and up via the spout of the Moka pot to become powerful, rich coffee.
You can get the Bialetti Moka Express in a big range of sizes from three cups to twelve cups.
The six-cup machine is top for most people, but if you like to entertain or you have a huge family, the twelve cup machine will be just right.
The traditional Moka pot comes in silvery aluminium, but you can also get it in orange, blue, red and purple colour choices.
