Traditional Espresso - but more convenient

 

We loved our traditional shape electric espresso jug - but I killed it by running it without water - had a senior moment! (so we a...

Great Coffee Percolator

 

I received this percolator as a Christmas present, and have been very happy with its use. It's relatively easy to use, although I'd recommend looking up some instructions or a Youtube video if you've never used one before. I've enjoyed my coffees and...

Consumer review by: Steve (productreview.com.au)

Inferior construction and a company that doesn't stand by its product warranty.

 

I've had and used many espresso makers. The Bialetti six cup moka express started off making great cups of coffee (though six is a stretch - will make one or two good cups). However, within a month or so of use the handle broke at the stem bracket....

Excellent

 

I love the simplicity of this classic Italian coffee machine. The simple style, design and elegant finish of this coffee machine makes it a beautiful piece of art in my stove top or kitchen counter. It is also practical than using an electrical one if...

There's nothing I dislike about this product. People who prefer electrical coffee machine might dislike this product, not me.

CoffeeGeek - Bialetti Moka Express - All Sizes - Matthew C's Review

 

I love this little guy, I start everyday with a brew. (okay nearly, on the rougher ones it might be my french press instead) Is it perfect to the $8 store bought, of course not. But for the price and enjoyment it come right close. I've even started to...

Simple and easy to use, easy to clean. Its a clean nice piece of kitchenware

vague instructions, incomplete details. Does not tell you how much water to use, only to refer to a non-existent marking inside the chamber. It does stay quite hot after using

CoffeeGeek - Bialetti Moka Express - All Sizes - Bob Pasternak's Review

 

At first I didn't really notice the metallic taste in the coffee. But now that I notice it I realize it's always been there.

Very fast. Makes 2 cups in 2 1/2 minutes ; Jaunty octagonal design not bad for inexpensive coffee pot

Overwhelming taste of metal ; This pot is aluminum. I just bought a stainless steel Bialetti Venus. But the stainless pot ; has the same metallic taste ; The gas flame on my stove is wider than the pot. To avoid burning or melting the handle I can only...

I live in Paris.

Makes wonderfully strong coffee, if you are careful on how you use it. There are many sites on the internet that give you instructions that will help you make a perfect cup of coffee

I cant think of any right now, but don't expect to make espresso in this, if that is what you are looking for. This makes a really strong cup of Moka pot coffee, which I would argue is a completely different experience. However, the coffee it makes is...

I know very well how to use this machine because my in-laws are Italian. I am very familiar with it regardless of its size. I have a collection of this in five different sizes. I know the right amount of coffee and the trick to make the best espresso...

CoffeeGeek - Bialetti Moka Express - All Sizes - Chris Smith's Review

 

Not much to say about this fine piece of Italian equipment other than that I am glad my Italian girlfriend introduced me to it. When getting into espresso she showed me how they used these little gems in Italy. Realistically most people can not afford...

I find that for the price it definitely makes a better cup of coffee better than most low end espresso machines that I have come across

No crema , but I can live with no crema if I can save hundreds of dollars
