Moka pot could seem too complicated to you at first glance. But it’s not a rocket science at all. Just make several brews with following How-To-Use-Moka instructions and you will remember every step:

As you can understand from guide, moka stovetop espresso maker is not to difficult to use. The only problem with moka – it commonly overheats the coffee. That’s why I reccommend to:

  1. Use small hob burner plate and put the pot on the edge
  2. Use medium heat (it will take a little more time to make a coffee, but less chance of overheating)
  3. Do not wait till big bubbles appear. Try to put off before this moment.

Optionally, you can put lower water tank under the cold water from faucet to stop the exctraction proccess at the right time.

Enjoy your coffee!

    • Yes, it probably makes sense. Because the middle part (filter with coffee) and the upper part will have less time to be heated by the stove. Nevertheless, I think that the anti-overheating effect is low and this is made primary for speeding-up the whole proccess.
