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 one 2-ounce espresso cup 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 1 demitassse cup of rich, authentic Italian espresso in just 4-5 minutes.
Love your coffee, brew like an Italian
Brew like the Italians brew. Bialetti’s Ground Moka Coffee is the only recommended coffee for your Moka Express. Bialetti’s coffee has been exclusively ground to extract the best possible flavors during the Moka brewing process. Grind size is very important for all types of brewing. The size can affect how your coffee tastes when brewed by different methods. When brewing with your Moka too fine of a grind can cause your Moka pot to clog during brewing. Too coarse, and you get tasteless, weak coffee. Complement your Italian Moka Express with Italian Ground Moka Coffee from Bialetti.
Steps for Use:
Fill the lower chamber with cold water just below the valve.
Insert the funnel and fill it with ground coffee (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel. Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using handle for leverage.
Select burner size to fit bottom of the Moka. For gas stovetop, make sure the flame is not larger than bottom of the Moka. The flame should not come around the sides of the pot. Heat until the water boils and coffee begins to come out of the center post. There will be a gurgling sound during this process.
When the top of the pot is full of coffee, remove from stove. Before pouring coffee, stir it in the upper chamber with a small spoon to equalize all the different coffee layers for optimum flavor.

Use Bialetti's Moka ground coffee for best results. Coffee that is ground too fine can clog your Moka pot and ground too coarse will make tasteless, pale coffee.
Heat may be too high if pot produces coffee with a burnt like taste. Try lowering the heat on your next batch. It may take some trial and error.
Do not let flames on stove top extend over the sides of the Moka.
Stir the upper chamber with a spoon after coffee is done brewing.
For best tasting results always use filtered water.
- Wash by hand with warm water
- Dry thoroughly with a towel
- Do not reassemble until all parts are completely dry
- Do not use is the dishwasher
- Do not use and abrasive products to clean the Moka

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
- good "correct" way of making coffee
- flavour is there, very few (almost none) bits of coffee "bits" get into the final product
- looks nice
- works on induction heaters
- easy to wash
- not delivered in perfect condition (had a few scratches and it didn't really seem like new, though Amazon has offered a 30% reimbursement while keeping the product)
- even if it's easy to wash, you still have to wash it every time, as supposed to more expensive ways of making coffee (espresso, filter etc)
- process of adding grounded coffee in that slot almost always ends up in a little mess (it's morning and I haven't had my coffee, of course I'm not careful)
- don't get fooled about that 4 cups thing, that only works for tiny espresso shots; it will just make enough coffee for 2 people if you fill it up to max.
The funnel tank is sharp. I cut my hand when washing it.
There was a little smell of grease on the screw threads of the boiler and the kettle. It was still there even after a couple of runs. But after several uses it goes away.
It would be better if the gasket was made of silicone rather than rubber. The kettle's spout could be designed to be anti-drip.
Overall good product.

The models which brew 3 and 9 cups are not made in Italy, this is where the quality of the Moka Pot decreases and you are left with an inferior product which causes all the problems down the road.
In the photo I provided you will notice that the model which brews 6 cups has a badge on the front of the box stating "made in italy" and the others do not. I've bought all the other models which brew more or less than 6 cups and noticed they did not have it. After several uses the ones that brew 3 and 9 cups deteriorated and had issues.
So in short, only buy the one that brews 6 cups since that one is actually made in italy and well built. Hope this helps. Took me a while to figure this out.
It makes delicious coffee. Put some full city roast in their and fire it up and what comes out is espresso. From my readings I've gathered that its not actually espresso, as the Moka pot doesn't make enough pressure for it to be real espresso. But its playing the part convincingly, I can't tell the difference between what comes out of this and a shot of espresso. Its paid for itself a dozen times over at this point. Absolutely one of the best purchases I've ever made. I couldn't be happier.
- Excellent coffee
- Cheaper than buying espresso from coffee shops
- Tastes like coffee from espresso shops
- A bit time consuming (although I've grown to like the ritual of it)
- Can be a bit finnicky to get the coffee to brew right
- Time consuming to do a deep clean (a quick rinse is usually enough though)
If you're on the fence, buy it. You won't regret it.
