Moka Pot

They don’t call this the stove-top espresso for nothing. Available in a range of sizes, some tiny enough to cart halfway across the globe, this three-tier contraption is exactly what you need when you’re craving a taste of some dark, syrupy, tongue coating liquid magic that leaves you feeling fuzzy and warm. Best of all, you can lock away those complicated gizmos and leave the brewing to the Moka Pot, it won’t disappoint.


Step 1

Grind and take about 19-22 grams of ground coffee resembling grounds for espresso in coarseness ( We prefer it to be slightly coarser so you might have to play around with coarseness to understand what makes the best cup for you ).

Step 2

After heating 300 mL water, pour the hot water into the bottom chamber of the Moka Pot.

Step 3

Fill the Moka Pot's filter basket with ground coffee and nudge it to get an even surface. Place it into the bottom chamber.

Step 4

Tighten the top chamber to the bottom ( Please be careful as by this time the bottom chamber is probably hot because of the hot water in it ).

Step 5

Place the setup on on a stove at medium heat. Soon water will boil and will be pushed through the coffee bed to the collection chamber. If the brewed coffee is coming out too fast, reduce the heat and if it is too slow and bubbly increase the heat.

Step 6

Once you hear hissing and bubbling sound, your cup is ready!
