Product Description

Moka Crem is the only stovetop coffee maker that makes espresso with a soft, 'cream-like” froth. It features a stay-cool lid, handle and knob, and an easy-to-clean valve. The see-through lid allows you to check the consistency of the froth and the special patented double-height funnel guarantees the right amount of water for each use. Bialetti's Moka Crem is the only stovetop espresso maker equipped with a special built-in frother that enables you to infuse air into the coffee to create a soft, velvety, foam-like froth on the top of your espresso. To use; fill the lower chamber with cold water just below the valve. Insert the funnel and fill it with ground espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel. Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using the handle for leverage. Insert the lid locking it to the handle with a clockwise rotation of the black lever to Cream position. Select burner size to fit bottom of pot. For gas stovetop, make sure the flame is not larger than bottom of pot. The flame should not come around the sides of the pot. After a few minutes, the coffee will gradually start pushing up the frother. When you see the pillar coming up, you can remove the coffee maker from the stove. Place the maker on a solid surface. Make sure the lid is in the closed position, hold the maker firmly with one hand and with the other pull and push the Moka Crem system 10 to 20 times with short, fast movements to create a soft cream. Open the spout by pushing the lever on the lid to the Pour position and pour. Note that the max boiler capacity is slightly more than the final output since there is always a little water left in the boiler after brewing. Never use other contents besides coffee like teas, cacao powder, instant coffee or fine ground coffee as it will clog the filter plate. Do not use abrasive or aggressive chemical products for cleaning. Doing so can cause damage to exterior and interior of cookware. For best results, hand wash with non-abrasive cleansers and liquid dishwashing soap. Pot is not dishwasher safe. Bialetti is the world's most recognized and beloved Italian coffee company. Bialetti coffee makers have become iconic and has allowed millions of consumers to enjoy great Italian coffee that once was only available in cafes and restaurants. Bialetti's passion remains in making superb coffee simple. Made in Italy.

Some people complained about not getting foamy coffee with this product.Do not follow Bialetti's instruction book with regards to the proper water level in the bottom black reservoir.The manual mentions to fill the water above the pressure valve and I say NO!!
Just fill water just below the pressure valve because you do not want to brew too much coffee at a time.The top chamber needs room for the foaming action of the plunger to work effectively.

*****************Updated Information (March 1,2013*******************************

Cappucino-Making -IF you want a cappuccino then warm 5ounces of milk in metal pan or microwave just under the boiling point and add a little less than one teaspoon of white sugar into the milk and stir. Then proceed to the coffee brewing steps below.

How to propering use the "Bialetti moka crem pot":This is for making plain stove top coffee foam(what this machine was designed for )

Materials Needed:
1-Lavazza Crema e Gusto coffee- designed for moka pots and is "Made In Italy"-tastes like cocoa with a pleasant flavor and not bitter.
2-Cool filtered water-this is important;tap water will ruin any coffee in my opinion
3-Bialetti Moka Crem Pot-keep this pot clean by running moderately hot water on all the pieces of the unit.Never use soap!!! The pot will smell of coffee grounds in the bottom black chamber but this is normal.This "seasoning" of the pot is a good thing.
Also, remove the rubber gasket and filter plate and wash them at least a week. You want all the pieces of the moka pot to be dried off for a few hours before assembling the pot and putting it away in storage.

Set the heat on a 3 out of 10 heat setting if using an electric stove top and leave the plastic lid of the pot.

Several reviewers have mentioned that making the crema is difficult or impossible to make. On the web, others claim that an arabica-robusto bean mix produces better results. After fiddling with the pot over the last month I've found a ridiculously simple solution that provides a nice froth every time: when the coffee is done brewing, remove the pot from the stove and just let the coffee rest for a few minutes. Then use the little plunger. You'll get a great froth no matter what sort of bean you use, and yes, the coffee will still be piping hot.

I received this little pot as a gift and I count myself amused by it. Filling to the recommended mark makes a 3 cup (6 oz American) pot of coffee that you can just barely get a crema on. My Bodum cups are 4 oz, so this is roughly 2 actual espresso cups.

There are several problems with the crem: one, if the pot fills all the way there isn't enough air under the plunger to make much froth and two, most importantly, the crema gets *stuck* under the lid when pouring out. I've chosen to find this funny, but I might not be so amused if I'd paid extra for it.

As noted elsewhere on the Internet, there is also a difference depending on the coffee you use. I started with my usual pre-ground espresso and got very disappointing results. Using a fresh, store-ground bag of coffee produced the results in my photos and is acceptable. Some reviewers claimed the best results with robustica coffee blends because they have a higher fat content, but I prefer arabica so I haven't experimented with that.

The Bialetti Moka Crem is a cute novelty coffee maker, but if you want a real crema, you'll need a real espresso maker.

I have owned several electric espresso makers, espresso stove pots, french press and percolators but so far this is the best value for money in coming up with crema laden espresso. Placing your water level below the safety valve is very ideal as it leaves enough space for the crema. The transparent cover is not exactly clear once steam starts to form on it but you can get an indication that the crema has formed once crema starts to splash on the inside part of the transparent cover. Great for 2 people!

I bought this as my Gaggia Baby D coffee machine had to go for repair and I didn’t want to be without my fresh coffee. This is my first moka purchase.

I like a crema layer on the top of my coffee, but I couldn’t get one using my regular Illy Arabica Coffee. I found that I needed to buy a Robusta/Arabica coffee blend, in order to get the crema layer and I bought a block of Lavazza Crema Gusto, which is working absolutely fine for me.

The only thing that I found I needed to be careful of was that if I made too much coffee, when using the plunger to create the crema foam, some of the coffee unfortunately spilled out of the lid, which I felt could have had a slightly tighter fitting.

If you’ve never used one of these gadgets before… remember not to walk away from the gas hob, as there’s no whistle or anything to tell you when your coffee is ready; you need to keep an eye out for when the plunger starts to rise and then quickly take it off the heat.

Despite the above, overall, I’m very happy with this little gadget and would recommend it.

This is a major disappointment. Having happily used my daughter's Brikka for years until she moved out, I thought I would try this version. But no. 1. if used as directed, the stem is very stiff so never rises and the coffee just boils with no signal it is ready. 2. the water level instruction is clearly wrong. 3. the crema action either does not work or only lasts a second, gone by the time you pour it out. 4. the plastic top and instruction labels render the whole thing pretty tacky. 5. definitely not a better flavor than the Brikka.
