    Es una cafetera muy bonita a la vista, se siente pesada y sĂłlida.
    En un inicio creí que me había salido mala, resulta que, como estaba usando un paño de microfibra, se resbalaba y no alcanzaba a apretarla bien, para que lo tengan en cuenta.
    Ahora la aprieto con mi playera y los resultados han sido constantes y muy buenos.
    El café sale bien cargado, aunque no noté tanta diferencia de líquido entre mi Bialetti de 3 tazas y esta, quizás lo siento así porque no tengo tazas de Espresso.
    Para aquellos comentarios de que se derritió la manija, yo no sé qué hacen, simplemente pones la flama que no rebase la base y ya. Incluso sale más rico el café así por como se infusiona.

    Definitivamente recomiendo esta cafetera, no le pide nada a modelos más costosos.

    The lid is not closing properly and it’s a new piece, requested for return but not picked and no information regarding that which is an immediate requirement. Please respond and resolve the issue

    Even though it has only been one day that I have had this, I feel confident in its build quality and am convinced that it is an excellent value at $23. I can tell the handle will not and is not meant to withstand any torque as a result of joining or dismantling the unit. It is meant to hold the unit, and allow pouring and that is it. The reservoir holds 8oz, no more on this 6 cup model. Do not put more than that in the reservoir or you may have problems such as leaks. It is the perfect amount for 2 cups with steamed or warmed/frothed milk. I used some old freezer beans for my first run, I was also using a new hand grinder so I am still getting used to the grind settings. It was a fine grind, I tamped lightly. The first pot smelled fantastic! but I dumped it down the drain and waited for things to cool down to clean things up and go again. This time with a french roast bean and a slightly more coarse grind but still fine. Assembled the halves being sure that there were no loose grinds to interfere with the 2 parts joining properly and put it on the heat. I preheated the water this time and it started brewing a little faster. It gives the same auditory signals that an electric espresso machine gives, the sputtering means it is about done and remove it from the heat when it is mostly silent. It was a fantastic cup of espresso, well cappuccino I suppose, just like I remember from my old machine. This type of coffee making takes some attention to detail and careful execution to be successful. It is not a set it and forget it kind of thing. You are committed to the process for about 12 minutes, depending on your heat source and barista skills. Of course once you have enjoyed your Java, you have to clean the unit and dry it for best results.
    I experienced no leaks, no surprises just a splendid cup of espresso. The unit is easy to clean, no soap just hot water and brush or cloth. maybe occasionally remove the silicone ring(takes a little effort) and give the filter a good cleaning especially if it ever gets left for extended periods after use. I use baking soda to remove any stains where coffee is involved.
    I will add any updated information as time goes by but for now I have full confidence in this product and recommend it to anyone who is looking for an economical way to make espresso that is full stainless steel. Seeing how things have changed in the last few years where old time quality has given way to new world garbage, it is refreshing to see that a quality item can still be had for a decent price amongst all the inferior options.

    I ordered this item because it is described as 18/8 stainless steel. And yet, when you pull this item up on Amazon, the title is Primula “Aluminum” Stove-Top Espresso Maker. I didn’t catch that before ordering. It is the main reason I give it three stars.

    So how can it be both? It looks to me as if it is stainless steel coated aluminum. The inside of the pot looks like aluminum; but if it is not, I’m not sure what that coating is. It sure doesn’t look like the inside of my 18/8 cookware. But…I’m not a metallurgist. The grounds holder is definitely not 18/8 if it is stainless steel. I recommend checking out Bialetti Musa Moka Pot. It is much more substantial, definitely 18/8 all the way, and has a 2 year warranty. Right now Sweet Maria’s offers it for about 15% less than Amazon. (Sorry big A. But you are the one who taught us that competition is the name of the game, right?)

    Keep in mind: this is an espresso pot, not a coffee pot. Some reviewers seemed surprised at how little it holds (8 ounces of water in the four cupper, which is only about 6 ounces of brew). It is designed to make little teeny tiny cups of espresso. Although you could use it to make espresso and then add hot water for an Americano.

    All of that aside, however, how did it work? It works well enough. You’ll have to experiment with the level of your heat source–ideal time from start to finish should be 5 minutes. Expect some water to remain in the bottom part–that’s how moka pots are designed–you never want any pot to boil dry. I’ve had a couple fails, where only half of the water brewed, and I think that was because the heat was too low.

    Taste: You know, with a Moka pot, you have to be able to tolerate some sludge in your coffee. You want to get it off the heat source as soon as the liquid turns clear–some will say when it gurgles, but that was too late for me, and it had a faint burnt taste. Another fail was where I used too coarse of a grind coffee (I don’t recommend coffee ground for drip), and the coffee was under-extracted and bitter. If you are careful and follow the tips, you can get a passable espresso.

    If you want to keep it spiffy-looking, you’ll need to dry it as soon as you rinse (never wash) it, because stainless steel is not really stainless of course. But if you aren’t OCD, just rinse it and drain. There is a recessed area in the interior that I doubt even the worst OCDs will be able to get to and clean. After 5 brews mine is already stained, and it’s going to stay that way. Hopefully, as it gets more that way, it will not affect the taste.

    Bottom line: As with all things coffee, the first question is: how finicky are you? If you have a blessed palate that can detect subtle flavors, and you enjoy tweaking coffee toys, go for the Bialetti for just under twice the price. If you really don’t mind a few flaws, and don’t want to tinker much with the toy, this one is a decent plaything. This is definitely an inexpensive step up from the all aluminum Moka pots. On the other hand, if you really love good espresso, you need to save your money, put on your big boy/big girl pants, and move right on by the Moka pots to a good burr grinder ($200 and up) and decent espresso machine ($350 and up).

    UPDATE AFTER MORE USE AND KNOWLEDGE:
    It is a nice change periodically from a brewed cup and an espresso cup of coffee, so I am enjoying it. If this is for one person, I do recommend the 4 cup rather than the six–4 cup is just the right amount. Also, it makes a big difference if you heat the water in a microwave and then add it to the pot and then put it on the stove. Really helpful details are here:

    My old classic Bialetti moka pot — the one with the little mustachio-ed guy on it — finally gave out, and I replaced it with this sleek stainless steel version. I like it a lot. I like that it’s not aluminum, which I am somewhat leery about as a cookware material. IThe Primula is easy to use, makes nice strong coffee (which, let us face it, is not real espresso but close enough for me) and is easy to clean. It’s also pretty and well-priced. But — as with any stovetop “espresso” maker, there’s a learning curve. Opening and closing the lid with the cute little lever takes a bit of practice, and it’s wise to follow the package warning not to use this pot on a large burner if you want to keep the handle from dissolving. Making coffee in any moka-type pot is one part science, three parts art. Once you figure out the little tricks — which should take about three tries — you’ll understand why millions of Italians use pots like this one.

    Toda la jarra hace una taza normal. Si llenan el filtro tendrán una dosis super intensa. Me encanta que no es aluminio.

    I purchased another espresso maker and didn’t realize it was Aluminum which is highly poisonous. When my husband showed me, I immediately looked for a stainless steal maker. I was concerned if the flavor would be as good as the other one is used for many years by many people, but this maker is BEAUTIFUL and makes a wonderful cup of espresso which I make every morning. I highly recommend this over the traditional aluminum pot. Thanks!
