Moka Pot

The Moka Pot is an Italian beauty that is widely used and respected around the world. The stove-top coffee maker produces coffee by letting boiling water that has been pressurized by steam pass through the coffee grounds. This is a simple and effective method for great-tasting coffee.

Instructions

 

  1. Fill the water tank up all the way with hot water.
  2. Add 20 g of ground coffee to the metal filter basket. Level the surface off with your finger, but do not pack the grounds.
  3. Return the metal filter basket to its position for brewing.
  4. Reattach the water tank to the upper chamber. Make sure it is screwed together properly, but do not overtighten.
  5. Place the brewer on the stove. Use moderate heat. Make sure the handle is not subjected to heat and leave the lid open.
  6. Let the coffee brew until you hear a hissing, bubbling sound - this should take about 4 - 5 minutes.
  7. Remove the brewer from the stove and close the lid.
  8. Run the bottom of the pot under cold water before serving.
