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...

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

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...

Excellent

 

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...

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.

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

Some History:

Aesthetically beautiful ; Strong, balanced coffee ; Very easy to use ; Easy to clean-up ; Cheap ; The more you use it, the better the coffee will taste ; Amazing choice for someone who travels a lot and likes to have good coffee regularly ; For those...

It's a little bit uncool to clean it every time you brew it. Personally I just rinse it under water (I dislike removing the coffee oils attached to the Moka's walls) ; The first couple of brews have a metallized flavour. Pour them in the sink. (Waste...

CoffeeGeek - Bialetti Moka Express - All Sizes - Paula Campbell's Review

 

There are two coffee brewing methods every coffee drinker should consider obtaining. A French Press and a Moka Pot. Both make excellent coffee and are fairly inexpensive.

Easy to use. Perfect coffee every time and not too difficult to clean up. Makes excellent coffee

There is a small learning curve to getting the best results from your Moka Pot

I actually received it as a gift from my father-in-law, but looked up the price on

This brand makes different sized espresso pots for different cup sizes, so you can get it in 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 espresso cup size ; Ranging in price from $18.95 for 1 cup to $49.95 for 12 cups ; It's made in Italy and we all know, they know their...

I don't like that the coffee boils out of the pot when it's done or almost done. So if you are not right there exactly when it's finished, it keeps boiling and it spills out of the pot making a mess on the stove. But I guess that can be remedied by...
