The MILANO from GROSCHE is a classic Italian stovetop espresso maker, also called Moka pot. It’s perfect for anyone who loves the taste of a strong shot or double shot of espresso. Compared to filter coffee makers, this brewing method extracts more caffeine and flavours. This gives stovetop espresso a stronger and richer brew than a percolator. The MILANO stovetop espresso maker will make your espresso experience perfect every time.
The MILANO Moka pot is made from food safe aluminium a non-toxic silicon gasket seal. You can use it on all gas and electric stovetops, it is however not suitable for induction stovetops. The MILANO is the only coffee percolator that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching hot surfaces. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.
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.
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.
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 MILANO and screw the top part back on. Next, put the MILANO 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 MILANO from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino.
This Moka Pot coffee maker is also perfect for taking camping. You can put it on a camping stove and brew a delicious cup of Moka Coffee on the go. Simply rinse out to clean and you’re all set. For the cottage or the campsite, this is a wonderful way to brew.
