This machine has only 16 grind settings, but we liked that each was clearly labeled. Its dial timer doses the correct amount of coffee beans for the number of cups you're brewing (two cups or more). Its grounds container was a little small and slightly awkward to clean.

Ease of Use / Cleanup

This thick, insulated pot was as simple to use as a traditional glass press, but it kept coffee hotter much longer. It’s also sturdier, with a round, comfortable handle. It took top honors in our tasting, producing coffee that tasters called “rich,” “rounded,” “nutty,” and “full-bodied.”

Handling

Cleanup

This unique model has a valve on its underside that stays closed until it’s placed on a mug or carafe, allowing the water to flow through. The manufacturer recommends steeping the grounds for 3 minutes—much longer than the 30-second bloom typical of the pour-over method, which makes it brew coffee more like a French press. However, this model is often included in reviews of pour-over coffee makers because of its shape and because the coffee tastes similar to pour-over coffee. In our tests, the coffee tasted rich and nutty and consistently registered a bit above recommended TDS range. Cleanup was a hassle. The valve is located under a dome-shaped base. Condensation collected there that was impossible to reach and dry off properly. You must activate the valve by hand when washing the model to clean it thoroughly.

Cleanup

This moka pot features the classic hourglass-shape design, with a wide bottom that allows for maximum contact with the stovetop burner, accelerating the brewing process and preventing over-extraction that can cause bitterness. It was fast, averaging a little over 5 minutes to extract the coffee. The center tube inside its upper chamber has two wide openings, which prevents the liquid from spurting and spilling from the pot. We liked that its lid stayed open when we wanted it to; it made monitoring the brew process and cleaning the upper chamber easier. Its curved handle was ergonomic and comfortable to hold. Like all moka pot coffee, there was some grit in the finished brew because the metal filter doesn’t filter out fine solids.


Material: Aluminum
