Mukka Cappuccino Express 2 Cup Bialetti has done it again. With the invention of the Mukka Express, now it is possible to brew barista quality cappuccinos and lattes right on the stove top. The first of its kind Mukka Express has already been met with wild enthusiasm in Italy, and now available in the American marketplace. While the funtion of the Mukka Express employs the tradition of stovetop brewing, the top portion of the pot is filled with milk so that as the expresso enters the top chamber, it mixes with the steamed milk and within minutes 2 cups of cappuccino are brewed and ready to serve.

Some of the water always remained in the bottom chamber. As a result, you did not get two cappuccinos, you got one. Also, the cappuccino was more like coffee flavored milk, because the would-be coffee was made with only some water, while the rest of it just sat below. If I cooked it longer, the coffee would burn before all the water was used. If I cooked it on a higher flame – the pot would leak coffee from the sides and/or the coffee burned.
The pot would leak coffee if the flame was too high (instructions recommend medium to high flame), or the coffee was too finely ground (instruction recommend espresso ground coffee) despite of having a spotless rim and securely screwed on top. What helped was using coarser ground coffee or reducing the flame. But when the flame was reduced too much, not enough foam was produced and the milk wasn’t hot enough. With the flame higher, the foam and milk temperature were fine, but the coffee leaked all over my stove. It was impossible to get it right.
Another minor hassle was cleaning the unit – the valve had to be cleaned immediately or it would clog up with milk. The unit is heavy and bulky, not the easiest to handle (screw, unscrew, wash) for someone with small hands (referring to a 2-cup Mukka).
When the unit works as designed (I only got a decent outcome once), the coffee is pretty good, but not great. The cappuccinos are (1) rather small, and (2) rather weak. You’re better off using a regular Moka Express to make espresso and add foamed milk separately – which is what I had been doing before getting this unit and have been doing again since returning it, which I did after one week of trying.
I think part of the issue is the design of American cooking ranges. In Europe, ranges have much smaller burners with more closely spaced flames with lower sitting grates, so the flame is more direct. In the US the grates are higher and the burners are bigger with more sparsely located flames. I found that my Moka pots perform better on a small camping stove, so the same might be true for the Mukka Express. If you have a ceramic or electric stove, this machine might work just fine. Still, I’d say get a regular Moka Express and a milk frother for a fraction of a price, and enjoy simpler and better cappuccinos and lattes.
Updating this review...we called Amazon and they agreed to allow us to return the product. The Amazon agent was courteous, efficient, and helpful. The Mukka Express is on its way back to Amazon. Yet another reason that Amazon is my favorite online retailer!!
This is our second time purchasing this item, after our first failed (bought second-hand, so cannot attest to how well it was treated before we acquired it!)-- the top button couldn't be pushed down, which resulted in no foam. We loved the product so much we decided to splurge and buy a new one. It definitely doesn't disappoint!
Only negative is that the threads of the screw-on portion connection the top and bottom can wind VERY tightly, and it sometimes requires both of us to unscrew it.
