Description

One size for each need: Moka Express sizes are measured in Espresso Cups, coffee can be enjoyed in Espresso Cups or in larger containers UPDATE: I am posting this to help others with finding replacement gaskets for their Bialetti Venus 6-cup moka pot. I wanted to plan ahead and have a couple gaskets on hand when my gasket eventually fails. After researching, i selected this product which, as stated in their description, is a genuine Bialetti replacement — although the gaskets are made of RUBBER, not silicone as was supplied in my original Venus moka pot. If the largest size of the Moka Pot still feels too small for you, you might consider a percolator. It is a simple stovetop coffee maker with vintage appeal, although it makes regular brew rather than strong espresso-style coffee. Things to consider when buying a Moka Pot When choosing the best Moka Pot, remember that it produces the equivalent of concentrated coffee similar to espresso, not a standard watered-down brew. So Moka Pot cups imply demitasse cups (or half-size cups) that contain two to three ounces of coffee. As you wonder, “What size Moka Pot should I get?” defining your coffee brewing and drinking preferences is essential. While stovetop coffee makers are relatively inexpensive and you can always get a few different sizes to play with, doing your homework will save you from disappointment, especially if you are buying your first Moka Pot. Assess your coffee-drinking habits

If you are still serious, against most recommendations, about filling a standard 12-ounce coffee mug with pure Moka Pot coffee, you’ll need one of the larger Moka Pot sizes. 9-cup Moka Pot will brew over one mug of coffee, and a 12-cup coffee maker will give you almost two mugs. Cleaning: When you unscrew your pot, there should be a some brown water left in the bottom because that leftover water would've diluted your brew too much if it had gone through, and it's got a lot of fines in it, so it's not the best-tasting. This I've learned from the Moka pot video on the "Il Barista Italiano" YouTube channel, among others.The right number of espresso cups: coffee can be enjoyed in espresso cups or in larger containers, Brikka is available in 2 sizes 2-cup 3,4 oz espresso and 4 cup 5,7 oz espresso It's sooo easy to clean with a soapy sponge but I usually just rinse it with water and it comes out spotless

Add the filter and coffee - insert the filter basket into the brewer, then fill the basket with coffee Break In: Bialetti recommends brewing at least three pots of coffee and throwing them away before you can brew a drinkable batch with good flavor. You can use old coffee for this. I think it takes a few batches for the valve to start consistently producing a lot of crema. It's good to practice several times so you can see how long it takes for the crema to come in and start accelerating. You can also pour hot water into a single serving of brewed Moka coffee to make an Americano. If you want your Americano to be bigger than 12 ounces, you will probably want a larger Moka Pot to prevent the coffee from tasting too watery. Contrary to what many are saying about initial use, i did wash the individual parts in very hot soapy dishwater and rinsed carefully before i used it for the first time. To be blunt — not following through on this step is just plain gross. You have no idea what this unit went through during the manufacturing process, or how many people handled it and under what conditions. Wash the damn thing in soapy water before you use it. After that, it requires minimal maintenance.

Customer reviews

On a side note the replacement filter screen that comes with the gaskets is a cheap aluminum facsimile of the original stainless steel one. AVOID THIS REPLACEMENT PRODUCT. It states it is made in Italy but looks Chinese. You will be disappointed. Even though a stovetop espresso maker is not quite a perfect replacement for an espresso machine, it produces strong coffee for a fraction of the cost. So when you understand how much coffee each size produces, you can easily choose the best Moka Pot to cater to your needs. Although smaller camping equipment is often easier to carry, you may find one of the larger Moka Pot sizes easier to maneuver over a fire than a smaller pot. Even a 2-cup size can be hard to handle over a blazing fire. If unsure, go for a happy medium, like a 4 or 6-cup Moka Pot. Finally, watch the gush of steam and froth at the end of the brew time — if it is too aggressive you risk turning the coffee bitter. Both Peet's® Big Bang whole bean and Lavazza Crema e Gusto (espresso grind) work wonderfully in this unit. In fact, I was surprised that the Peet's gives Lavazza a run for its money, price-wise. Simply a wonderful cup of coffee to look forward to every morning!
