Bialetti Express Moka Pot, 12-Cup, Aluminum Silver
Adding eclectic character to the kitchen stovetop, this polished-aluminum coffee pot features a unique octagon shape that was first designed in Italy in 1933. The unit makes nine 2-ounce espresso cups of coffee in just four to five minutes and is extremely simple to use. Just fill the lower chamber with water and the top filter with fine-ground coffee. Then place the pot on the stove and heat until the water boils. Through a pressurizing process, espresso moves to the upper chamber of the pot, ready to be served. Other highlights include a flip-up top with an easy-grip knob, a stay-cool black plastic handle, and a side-pour spout. When finished using the unit, wash it by hand with warm soapy water and rinse clean. Made in Italy. Aluminum, stovetop espresso maker produces 9 demitasse cups of rich, authentic Italian espresso in just 4-5 minutes.
How to make a perfect Italian coffee:
Select a quality blend, suitable for the production of coffee for the Moka.
Fill the boiler up to the lower level of the safety valve, without exceeding it and using freshwater, possibly low in limestone.
Fill the filter generously, without pressing the coffee powder, forming a small gutter and avoiding dust escaping on the edges of the boiler. Close the coffee pot, screwing the collector firmly onto the boiler, and place it on the stove.
The flame must never envelop the coffee maker but remain inside the bottom of the same, in order to allow extraction inadequate times and not too quickly. As soon as you start to hear the typical Moka gurgle, the coffee is ready and you will need to turn off the fire immediately.
Never let excess coffee boil: this would burn it, compromising its success and making it too bitter.
Enjoy hot coffee, as soon as it is ready, remember to mix the contents of the collector: the coffee extracted at the end, in fact, is less full-bodied than that leaked at the beginning of boiling.
