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.

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 )
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.Read more ›
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 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.
