Buying Guide: Bialetti – Moka Express: Iconic Stovetop Espresso Maker
Welcome to our buying guide for the Bialetti Moka Express: Iconic Stovetop Espresso Maker. This famous coffee pot is a must-have for coffee enthusiasts who want to experience the authentic Italian way of making coffee. In this guide, we will provide you with all the essential information to help you choose the right model and use it to make the perfect cup of Italian coffee.
Choosing the Right Size
The Bialetti Moka Express comes in different sizes, measured in espresso cups. Consider how many cups of coffee you typically make at a time. If you are a single coffee drinker, the 1-cup size (2 oz – 60 ml) would be perfect. For larger households or gatherings, you may want to opt for a larger size. Choose the size that best fits your needs.
Compatible Stove Types
The Bialetti Moka Express is compatible with gas, electric, and induction stoves. However, for induction stoves, you will need to purchase the Bialetti induction adapter plate separately. Ensure that your stove is compatible with the Moka Express before making a purchase.
Using the Moka Express
Once you have your Moka Express, follow these simple steps to make a delicious cup of Italian coffee:
- Fill the boiler up to the safety valve with water. Avoid overfilling the boiler as this may affect the brewing process.
- Add ground coffee to the filter basket without pressing it down.
- Screw the top and bottom parts of the Moka Express together tightly.
- Place the Moka Express on your stovetop over medium heat.
- As soon as you hear the Moka Express gurgle and coffee starts to come out, turn off the heat.
- Wait for a few moments to let the coffee finish brewing and the remaining water rise to the top chamber.
- Once all the water has risen to the top, you can serve the coffee immediately.
Cleaning and Maintenance
After each use, rinse the Moka Express with clean water. Avoid using detergent as it may leave residue that affects the taste of future brews. Do not put the Moka Express in the dishwasher, as it may cause irreparable damage to the aluminum and alter the flavor of the coffee.
