With all the expensive espresso makers sold around the world, native Italians prefer espresso from stovetop espresso makers and more Italians use Bialetti for their stovetop Italian coffee. For an excellent cup of Italian coffee, the classic eight-side household coffeepot is considered a true Italian tradition. The Moka Espress boasts a lot of records and, as such, is the most copied coffee-maker! With sturdy aluminum construction, the Moka Express is a product that actually improves with constant use. The unit is extremely simple to use. Just fill the lower chamber with water and the filter with ground espresso coffee. Place the pot on the stove and heat until the water boils. As it does, the liquid espresso moves to the upper chamber of the pot, ready to be poured into an awaiting espresso cup. After that, all you need to do is enjoy the delicious nectar of coffee.

Ps: if you start with very hot water in the base of the pot, it will take less time for the water to boil and the coffee to brew, so it will taste a lot cleaner and smooth.
These pots are very durable. Purchased our first one 3 years ago and it's still going strong, just needed a second one so I could stop carrying it from work to home. Tried a full espresso machine, but there are too many parts that can break and the moka pot takes less time to brew.
The coffee is a perfect concentration. Not too strong and not in any way weak - nice and flavorful. Don't do a full espresso grind as it's too small and some of the grounds are lifted up into the pot. The happy medium is between a drip and espresso grind.
We use these for about 5 cups a day and I recommend them to all our coffee drinking friends. They even say my coffee rivals the coffee house and I don't buy the best beans - shop around for an affordable, quality bean (we like Barrismo from Aldi $4/lb - it's fabulous).
Tip: Keep your grounds and scatter them in the garden. The plants love it!
I got a French press and began to really enjoy my coffee. I made enough for 4 8 oz. Cups. Too much of a good thing. I got the Bialetti 6 cup and started making Lavazza cappuccino every morning. Cheaper by far than an espresso machine. I love this coffee pot. Highly recommend it. Can't wait to take it camping. Great price and quality made.
Note that a 6 cup Moka Pot is a typical big mug of American sized coffee. I don't fill the filter all the way. Only about 2/3rds of a filter basket. I have tried filling the boiler with hot water and cold. I saw no difference in taste. I heat half and half on another burner and forth it in the pan. I recommend cleaning after each use.
The new one is cheaper / lighter / flimsier
I loved the old one
Hate the new one
The coffee is truly very good reminds me of the coffee we had in small cafes while we were visiting Italy. Starbucks coffee now tastes very crass and burnt after getting used to this. Got Lavazzo beans and I grind them as needed when brewing.
One thing to remember is that the 3 cups size is in reference to espresso sized cups. from an American coffee serving size level - 3 cups = 3/4 cup size of a Tall coffee in Starbucks...
Please be aware of this... I love this product and the coffee.

In use, followed the recommendations of throwing away the first few batches by using some Illy that was left after the loss my old Gaggia. It was used on a low heat (gas hob), making sure the flame did not extend around the side of the base. After five minutes, the first treacle-coloured coffee gently and quietly flowed out of the column in the top of the pot (lid up to watch!). Gradually, the colour lightened until nearly clear and a slight gurgling sound heard, removed the pot from the heat. Out of interest, tasted the first sample before throwing away, it had a rather bitter taste. After a couple of samples, made my first coffee to drink, for this used fresh Lavazza Rosa. Followed the same procedure as before but removed the pot from the heat somewhat sooner while the coffee had a brownish tint to it and here was no gurgling sound and waited while the rest of the water was used up. Drinking this coffee was so different from those initial throwaway batches, perfect!. It took just under 5 minutes of gentle heat before the first coffee appeared and then about another minute or so to complete. I would say that it was as good as anything made using the Gaggia machine. At the price it is, one could buy a selection of pot sizes and still have change left over for what an inferior machine would cost.
Additional comments: since having the Bialetti for a while now I thought it would be worth adding a few extra comments. Being used at least once or twice daily, the pot has now acquired a nice coffee discoloration inside, just rinsed out when used. One thing that I think makes the Bialetti well worth having compared to any cheap copies is how well it pours. The spout is very well designed and does not drip at all. Also, the lid fits very well. I have taken advantage of using it with a range of other Italian coffees that are not normally found on supermarket shelves. These include different coffees by Kimbo, Segafredo, Bristot. All of the coffees are enjoyable; I just need to decide which are my favourites as it takes a while to get through about 7 different types without having too many open at the same time. If anyone is interested, I can reply with the link for where I found the coffees.
Firstly, Bialetti is definitely one of the best moka pots out there, in terms of quality and materials. Yes, you can get cheaper ones, but sometimes it’s worth paying more. It’s also worth noting that you cannot make a true espresso in a moka pot as this requires very high pressures. So you won’t get the crema sitting on top. But your average person won’t know or tell the difference, and you can always enjoy serving it to a coffee snob and seeing how they react. I just enjoy the coffee without getting caught up in the pretentious rubbish that is often spouted.
The Bialetti cup size is ESPRESSO sized cups, not mug size. So this 4 cup size takes about 200 ml of water in the base, which after brewing, gives about 150 ml of strong dark coffee. The rest is lost in the coffee grounds, through evaporation, with a bit remaining in the base; that is part of the process and is normal. The 150ml is about 3-4 ‘shots’, which can be served as espresso size, or watered down with hot water for large Americanos, or add milk for latte, or steamed milk for cappuccinos. That’s exactly what the coffee shops do; take 1 or 2 shots and make the drink to suit. So it will make espresso size for 4 people, or Cappuccino/Latte size for 2 people.
There is a technique to using it, and it takes several goes to get it right. But once you do, it’s as simple as it gets. Fill up the base with cold tap water. Fill up the funnel with ground coffee (popular choices seem to be Illy or Lavazza). It takes about 18g but you don’t need to measure. Screw the top on. Put it over a gentle heat, after a minute or two the coffee slowly streams out, and remove it from the heat when it starts spluttering. Less than 10 minutes from deciding to have a coffee, so sitting down and enjoying it.
Some have difficulty knowing how high to have the heat, but it’s easy to work out. Simply fill the base, put it on the heat, and see what gas/electric mark you need to make it gently boil. Mine is the medium gas mark on the smallest ring. So I use this when it’s assembled and it works every time. I don’t need to guess, I know that the specific setting that makes it boil. Easy.
Cleaning it is easy. Once it’s cooled, take it apart, dispose of the grounds (very good on the compost) and wash everything in hot clean water, ensuring it’s dry before storing it.
Highly recommended – 5 stars.
It does stain a bit inside the bottom pot (where you put water), but that's nothing wrong. Try not to leave the machine closed for too long (more than one/two days) to avoid mould and stains.
Do not use strong flame or the handle will melt and the rubber inside will get damaged.
Turn the flame off as soon as you hear the typical gargling noise (if you wait too long the coffe will burn, the machine as well, the pressure valve will brake).
There are different coffee grounds available on the market, just check the one you want is suitable for coffee machines.
It sounds more complicated than it is. I have been using Bialetti espresso maker machine since ever (very italian roots) and I wouldn't go for any other one( not even other Bialetti styles). I hope this helps. Ciao!
IMPORTANTE: Tened muy en cuenta que una taza equivale a 40ml de café. Si queréis hacer un café con leche de 200ml (de los cuales 120ml sean café y los 80 restantes, leche) tendréis que pillar la de tres tazas! Espero que te haya ayudado mi review y te haya sido útil.
Por cierto, es un poco cara, pero estamos pagando la marca italiana y los controles de calidad. Espero que no se rompa nunca, de momento va bien!
Il caffe secondo il suo punto di vista deve essere forte e robusto , per lei prima viene la caffettiera successivamente la moca .
Ed a questo compito ci siamo affidati ad un azienda Italiana leader del settore e la conosciamo benissimo visto che sin da bambini i nostri genitori ne decantavano le lodi ed ogni volta ne descrivevano bene le ottime qualità e l’eccelsa resa della caffettiera Bialetti.
La prima cosa che abbiamo fatto appena è arrivata la caffettiera è pulirla bene in pochi e semplici passaggi:
1) L’abbiamo lavata con acqua e bicarbonato, in modo da eliminare tutte le impurità dovute alla fabbricazione.
2) Dentro la macchina abbiamo messo l’acqua e fatta azionare senza moka in modo da farla sterilizzare .
3) L’ultimo passaggio e ‘quello di far azionare la caffettiera con la moca , in questo caso abbiamo buttato il caffe che è fuori uscito e quest’operazione l’abbiamo ripetuta per 2 volte.
4) A questo punto potete degustare il caffe.
Il materiale di costruzione della caffettiera è in alluminio, ed al tatto si percepisce una buona solidità.
Il manico in resina termoplastica nera fatto in modo da non scottarsi.
Il design è invece quello inconfondibile delle caffettiere Bialetti un icona a livello mondiale.
A livello di resa inutile dirlo ma entrambi siamo rimasti soddisfatti per gli ottimi risultati, il caffe è buono e denso, questa caffettiera è capace di esaltare qualsiasi miscela che si metta all’interno ,e non ha nulla da invidiare al caffè del bar.
La consigliamo ad occhi chiusi, oltre che il marchio che è sinonimo di qualità e affidabilità’, oltre ad essere un eccellenza del made in Italy , la peculiarità’ più importante che la caffettiera eroga anche un eccelso caffè esaltandone l’aroma.
Es de aluminio. Lo único que decir es que no son 3 tazas. La cafetera es muy pequeña. Da para poder desayunar una persona. Adjunto foto para que se vea la proporción de café. Ese vaso es la máxima capacidad que saca.
More recent research by published Springer has shown conclusively that aluminium from coffee Mocca Pots (Bialetti was one of the pots tested) migrates in such small quantities as to contribute a maximum of 4% of our normal weekly intake of aluminium/Total Weekly Intake - and that figure is said to be a worst case scenario.
I have again bought a 9 cup Bialetti, and it really is the best. And it's easy to clean. (A 9 cup makes about 540ml of coffee i.e. 2 coffee mugs of black coffee. If you add milk. it might be a good idea to add less than the maximum amount of water to the pot and reduce the amount of coffee to match.
We had a no-name knock-off one of these for years which we've grown to love - it's travelled everywhere with us and used all the time. That one lost a part so has been retired. We already had a larger size Bialetti which is nice but not used as much. So we went original this time round.
We use this almost every day (sometimes more than once a day). It's even better than our much loved fake one as it has a very slightly larger capacity, is slightly more chunky and has a better spout which doesn't drip. I still think the handle could be marginally improved as it moves slightly which lessens the sensation of quality - but that's nit-picking.
Works well, makes great coffee. We couple this with a cafetiere for frothing microwaved milk.
Tips if you're new to these:
1. If you're grinding beans yourself, go to the finest setting and then back off a little - you don't want the very finest grind.
2. This has no measuring line that we can see in the water chamber - we fill to just below the pressure valve (or less). I’ve read a tip that it’s worth heating the water in a kettle first. This means that the coffee will come through before the heat has a chance to burn the coffee in the holder (not sure if this is true or not).
3. Only compress the coffee in the holder very lightly - don't compress it hard (this is advice we've read although in fairness I did used to compress it more in the old pot and didn't hit issues for a long time)
4. Use on a low to moderate heat (lower is better). If on gas, the flame shouldn't lick up the sides of the pot.
5. Keep an eye on it and turn off the heat just before the water as all come through - will need a couple of tries to get the hang. It keeps coming through after you turn the heat off because of heat stored in the metal.
6. Ensure lid is closed before it finishes or it will splutter coffee all over your cooker :-)
The coffee holder is hard to clean but running water through from both directions and using a normal dish brush on the perforated disc will remove most of any coffee stuck in the bit you can’t see.
If you want to froth milk...
1. For a full pot of coffee for two large mugs, we use 400ml of semi-skimmed (semi seems to work better than full fat) in a microwaveable jug
2. Heat for 2 mins (we have a microwave which is rated at 1000w but in practice is not that powerful - probably 850??) as soon as you put the coffee on.
3. Once the coffee starts coming through, heat the milk for a further 1:30 (experiment to get it how you like in your microwave - too hot ruins it IMHO)
4. Pour the coffee out between the mugs (a little into each at a time rather than all in one and then the other - the coffee can be different strengths in the pot as it comes through differently and may not have completely mixed).
5. Pour all the milk quickly but carefully into your cafetiere (quickly so that any skins goes with it rather than staying in the jug where its a pain to clean).
6. Insert the plunger and turn around so that the mesh is away from the spout (some have a blank piece on the opposite side to the mesh - ideal, otherwise use just the edge of the mesh part which usually blocks off the spout).
7. Froth by using the plunger up and down.
8. Push plunger in and turn around so that the mesh is at the spout. Pour most of the liquid milk into the mugs.
9. Either - froth the remainder some more and then pour out or, remove the plunger and pour straight away holding back the froth with a spoon at the spout, then spoon the foam on top. Experiment depending on how much froth to milk you want.
10. For chocolate sprinkles, get a shaker (supermarket kitchen sections sometimes have these) and put in one teaspoon of icing sugar to six parts cocoa powder (or just use drinking chocolate powder unmixed if you prefer). Swirl in the shaker to mix.
My coffee addiction is calling - I'm off to use my Bialetti.
I drink my coffee fairly strong, but to say this makes 3 cups is probably quite a stretch. You get about 1/2 a cup full of coffee from this - top it up with hot water & milk if you choose. Get a larger one if you are going to make more than 1 coffee at once.
Be aware these take a bit more before / after prep compared to other coffee tools - you need to fill it with water (ideally filtered), ground coffee beans, heat it on the hob, then make sure it doesn't boil over and spit hot coffee everywhere!
The only slight annoying thing about using this is cleaning after and drying it out - make sure it's dry before you put it away if you won't use it anytime soon. The aluminium + old coffee + water residue is a perfect area for mould to grow, as I experienced once!
Finalement je l'ai acheté et je dois dire que je ne suis pas déçu.
J'ai respecté à la lettre les recommandations indiquées dans la documentation et le café est effectivement très bon après la période de "rodage" (culottage) de cette cafetière.Je résume donc ce qui a déjà été dit: faire 3 rinçage à l"eau claire (la faire fonctionner évidemment) et 3 cafés (qui ne seront pas consommés) puis ne plus laver au savon votre cafetière mais seulement la rincer à l'eau clair.
En ce qui concerne d’éventuelles fuites...que nenni.....il faut bien faire attention à ne pas laisser de café sur le bord du filtre et serrez correctement la partie haute de la cafetière (ne pas trop serrer car vous endommagerez rapidement votre joint: perso j'applique moins d'un 1/8ème de tour après contact de la partie supérieur avec la partie inférieure).
Le seul petit bémol, impossible à éviter, est l'écoulement des quelques gouttes d'eau lié à la condensation de la vapeur sur le couvercle lors de l'ouverture de ce dernier une fois le café fait (vous me direz qu'il suffit de ne pas l'ouvrir mais il est nécessaire de légèrement "touiller" le café afin de la rendre homogène (café fort au fond)).
Enfin, je voudrais terminer sur le fait que je suis très satisfait de ne pas succomber à la mode des cafetières à capsule dont une célèbre marque est le fer de lance (vous ruine à l'achat et ensuite vous plume à l'achat du café....faite le prix d'un équivalent au kilo de café....Aîe j'ai mal...).
Cette cafetière c’est 25 euros et ensuite vous utilisez le café que vous voulez et le dosage que vous voulez....et vos invités seront tout aussi ravis :-)
Die 6-Tassen Version ist für Zwei Personen gut dimensioniert. Lässt sich aber auch komplett in einen Bodum-Thermo Becher als "To Go" einfüllen. Wie gesagt, Output sind etwa 0,3 Liter pures Kaffee vergnügen, daheim und unterwegs.
Moa o café em grãos, não pode ser uma moagem fina. Ferva água filtrada. Coloque a água quente na parte inferior na Moka Bialetti, sem ultrapassar a válvula. Coloque o café moído no funil. Rosqueia bem (cuidado com a base quente) Leve ao fogo. Rapidamente o café estará pronto. Aprecie a cor, os aromas e o sabor. A Moka Bialetti consegue entregar na xícara tudo de melhor que os bons cafés possuem.
Repita a receita com o pó fétido que vem dentro do Melitta ou Pilão, se tiver coragem. Compare o resultado. Não culpe a cafeteira Moka.
