The Moka Pot

8 Jan

The Moka Pot, also known as a Macchinetta, is a stove stop espresso maker widely popular in Europe. The Moka was patented by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933, and his company ‘Bialetti’ continues to make the original ‘Moka Express’  to this day. The quality and conveinence of the espresso derived from the Moka is incredible. The Moka works on steam pressure and is very simple to use. The Moka is made of three chambers. The bottom is for water, the middle is for the espresso grounds, and the top is for collecting the fresh espresso post steaming. Try to use quality and fresh espresso grounds and purified water for the best tasting results.
