    Every family in Italy owns one of these machines. Here are a few tips:

    1. In Italy this is NOT called an espresso machine, but a Moka machine. An espresso is what you would drink in bar made with a steam or high pressure machine with the crema on top.

    2. Smaller size Moka machine tend to make better coffee.

    3. Never wash the Moka with detergents, just rinse it under tap water

    4. You’ve gotta use it often for a good coffee.

    5. If you haven’t use it in a while, make a weak coffee (“lungo”) and discard

    6. DO NOT put the MOka in the dishwasher.

    7. Use drinking water. Avoid tap water especially if very chlorinated

    8. Never compress the coffee.

    9. For a strong coffee fill the filter with ground coffee and make a small cupola that slightly protrudes beyond the rim. Do not press down.

    10. For best coffee, heat at very low heat. It’s ok if it takes 10min.

    11. As soon as…

    About 12 years ago I was in Milan, and a friend gave me one of these to take home. I have used it nearly every day since (I don’t take it out of town), so that should give you an idea of how sturdy it is. It is the best coffee maker I have ever owned. To compare, I also have a high-tech espresso machine with frother; a state-of-the-art automatic drip coffeemaker; a French Press; and a different style of stovetop maker, which, surprisingly, makes a different brew. But I ALWAYS go back to my Bialetti Moka 6-cup for the best espresso and lattes. You even will get a crema effect with this simple pot. For lattes, I simply fill half a coffee mug with milk, heat it in the microwave until it’s hot, and then top it off with espresso. It’s low-maintenance — every once in a while I replace the internal rubber gasket, which costs a buck or so, depending upon where you buy it. If you like your coffee like the Italians and the Cubans, then you will like the brew this serves. I am loyal to this…

    Recently picked up a 3 cup Bialetti Moka Express while on holiday and couldn’t wait to get it home and broken in. I’ve tried stove-top Italian coffee makers before, and this model has not disappointed.

    Sturdy and well made, this unit only has about five parts, all of them metal or heavy-duty plastic so very little can go wrong. This should last ages if properly cared for.

    Just remember to keep it simple; fresh, cold water in the lower chamber (stopping *before* you get to the brass outlet valve) and fill the grounds basket with an espresso grind coffee (good excuse to buy more coffee) without packing it too tightly. Place on your stovetop ring and don’t go anywhere. Wait a few minutes, and you have an excellent espresso to start the day or to add to steamed milk after dinner. I can’t wait to have some with a cigar this weekend. I’ve been trying some Cafe Bustello the last few mornings and it’s been great. Yeah, I know it’s canned, but so are most of the coffees…
