An Italian Cafe In Your Kitchen

Often referred to as poor-man’s espresso machines, Italian moka pots are small, inexpensive (under $100) coffee makers that use steam pressure to force hot water from a bottom chamber up through coffee grounds. That pressure isn’t high enough for true espresso extraction, but the coffee they make is stronger and more complex than anything brewed in a drip machine.

"Worth its weight in gold for the practical cook who wants to feel confident about putting good food on the table."

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.
