Product description

Size Name:3 Cups  |  Colour Name:Aluminum

HISTORY OF ESPRESSO: Espresso is a specialty coffee brewed by forcing small amounts of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso is generally thicker and more highly concentrated than coffee brewed by other methods, often featuring a creamy foam on top. Espresso was invented in Italy at the beginning of the 20th century by Luigi Bezzera. Bezzera invented a method of creating coffee using steam pressure, providing a quick way to make a single cup of coffee. The original Italian name meant "pressed coffee," with a connotation of speed and efficiency EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN: The Primula 3-Cup Aluminum Espresso Maker features a modern, stylish design with a high-quality aluminum body. The handle is made from a heat resistant plastic that not only provides you with a firm and reliable grip, but also allows your hand to stay cool during use. Its efficient layout forces pressurized water through coffee grounds, and deposits a rich, full bodied espresso blend into the serving chamber FIRST USE INSTRUCTIONS: Unscrew the top and remove the filter funnel from the base. Locate the filter plate and rubber washer, and remove both. Wash all parts in hot water and then reassemble. It is recommended that your first espresso be thrown away as to ensure the optimal taste of ensuing brews SUBSEQUENT USES AND CLEANING: To use, fill the base with fresh water up to the level of the safety valve and insert the filter funnel. Fill the filter funnel with finely ground coffee (do not press down), and screw the assembled top firmly to the base. Place the espresso maker on low to medium heat, and within 3-5 minutes, delicious espresso will fill the serving chamber. Serve immediately. To clean, hand wash only. Do not use a dishwasher

Reviewed in the United States on 26 March 2019
This coffee maker seemed to work fine in the beginning. I did pay attention to other reviews about not using the handle to unscrew the top. But around the third time I made coffee instead of pouring out from the pot the coffee just spluttered everywhere, I think this is because the top part became too hot?? Anyway now the pot has developed this grayish sheen on it which rubs off on your hands when you handle it. It smells metallic and I'm not sure that it's safe. I really wanted this to work because I love having coffee from these kind of coffee makers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, works great and makes a mean cup o' coffee!
Reviewed in the United States on 16 July 2020
Love my red "cafetera greca". It makes ONE strong and LARGE cup of coffee. Fills my standard mug to the brim, barely room for cream. By "6 cups," they must mean espresso shots. If you like an old-school, piping hot, single cup of coffee that'll put some hair on your chest, this is for you. Of course, you can put less coffee grounds and make it less strong. Very versatile. Best of all, it looks great sitting out on the stove and takes up very little room. It's a cinch to clean too!

Using it takes a little finesse. It's not a pod coffee maker, and there are inconveniences if you don't use it correctly. Some common challenges:

1) You have to let all the parts dry completely after washing before putting it back together. If you seal it up with moisture in it you might end up with a musty metal smell next time you use it.

2) The color will change with use. I've used this red one over 90 times and the red on the bottom is just starting to turn a bit brassy (See photo). Character! My last one got REALLY discolored on the bottom after a year of use, and it wasn't as pretty anymore. So I got a new one. $20 a year isn't a huge deal to me. 

3) It gets VERY HOT. I had the handle melt off my first one after I forgot about it and let it cook on the stovetop for 30 minutes. As with all pots and pans, this is not a "set it and forget it" appliance. To avoid overheating the pot, you can add boiling water to the base, then add the coffee, screw on the top tightly and set it over the burner to percolate. It'll be ready in 30 seconds. Also, make sure the size of your burner/flame is not much larger than the base, or you risk heating the sides (bad) as much as the bottom. My smallest burner is larger than the pot, so I boil the water in the base first (see photo), then add the coffee and twist on the top. The biggest mistake people make with these is overheating the entire thing, burning the coffee and possibly melting off the plastic parts.

4) This pot "leaks" when you pour it in the sense that coffee will run down the side unless you pour it slowly. This is due to the small spout and the lid not creating a water-tight seal. It wasn't designed to be dumped into your mug in 2 seconds flat. Take a moment to stop and smell the coffee while you gently pour it into your mug. I guarantee no spills if you do it that way. :)

Enjoy!
