How to brew a Moka Pot
- The original Moka Express came from the brilliant mind of Alfonso Bialetti in 1933 and is the perfect example of Art Deco.
- The Moka Pot is not just a pretty face. Its design has been perfected over years, giving it an air of elegance alongside its functional simplicity, making an artist of the brewer.
There is simply no reason every coffee lover shouldn’t have one in their homes.
These guys have a bit of a reputation for sometimes producing a more bitter cup of coffee than intended. We’re here to show you exactly how NOT to do that.
- Boil your kettle (92°C)
- Grind 15 g of your coffee beans to a super fine ground
- Carefully fill the bottom part of the Moka Pot with the boiled water
- Fill the filter basket with the required amount of ground coffee (15 g).
- Dust away the loose ground coffee and then screw the filter basket to the bottom part of the pot (the one containing the hot water).
- Place the Moka Pot on the boiler/stove on medium heat.
- Once the coffee starts to flow out of the top valves, listen carefully for a gurgling/hissing sound. When you hear this, you want to cool it down.
- Remove the pot from the heat and run it under some cold water. This gets rid of the steam and stops the brewing process, allowing you to avoid making the brew too bitter.
Pour into your mug and enjoy.
