This MoMA pot is not to be used on induction stove tops.

  

What is Italian coffee?

Their love of coffee is something that Italians are known for. In Italy, the most popular way of brewing coffee is in a Italian stovetop espresso maker or Moka pot. While espresso that is purchased in a cafe here is often made in a high pressure machine that runs at around 15 bars of pressure, stovetop espresso makers work with low pressure. 

 

How to care for your Moka pot

They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher. In a dishwasher the aluminium will tarnish and turn black. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.

 

How to make a stovetop espresso

Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker and fill the lower part with cold fresh water. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve. After that, fill the filter funnel with fresh coarse ground espresso coffee. Once thats done, put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the moka pot and screw the top part back on. Next, put the moka pot on your stove at a medium-high temperature. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and wait for the upper section to fill. Finally, remove the moka pot from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino.
