How to make coffee with moka pot? The guide.

Comments: 4↓ specifications & manual ↓

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!

  1. Very informative. I have noticed that some pepole recommend using hot water to furher avoid overheating. What do you think of it ?

    • 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.

  2. this is interesting. it captures the bloom perfectly by using lower heat.

    the rest is indeed burnt, and out back on heat and put in a second cup, coukdnt get myself to sip it but the sink drank it happily up.

    the mokka imho doesnt develop enough pressure to do anything other than brew it,

    and meanwhile ive been thinking about the brikka but i dint think the physics are sound,
    seems it creates havoc in the stem.. then you get aerated crema “ “ from the delay the cap imposes on the flow from the valve,
    but at the expense of all that heat to generate said “crema”.

    which isnt being generated faithfully since the air intake valve on the brikka is the same as the mokka.

    i wish mom still had the manual la pavoni she had back in the mid eighties when i was a kid…
