Quality and taste of coffee preparation with the moka pot / Bialetti

Moka pot coffee and espresso have their own unique taste. First of all, it must be said that moka espresso is not comparable to a typical espresso from a portafilter. The moka pot simply does not have enough pressure, so that a flavorful crema cannot be created.

A classic moka pot can generate around 1.5 bar(~22 psi) of pressure, while a portafilter works with a pressure of around 9 to 15 bar (130 to 217 psi). This creates a cup profile that contains strong chocolate notes and is rounded off with a full-bodied taste with a pleasant body.

Medium roasts produce a very balanced taste, which contains country-specific flavors such as fruit, nuts or brittle.

Our step-by-step instructions for preparing with the moka pot

1. The right amount of coffee and grind: Use freshly roasted, high-quality coffee beans. For the moka pot, we recommend a fine grind. For a standard portion, fill the coffee filter in the moka pot with ground coffee up to the mark.

2. Fill with water: Fill the bottom of the moka pot with cold - or better yet, preheated - water to just below the pressure relief valve. Make sure you do not overfill the water to avoid overflow during the brewing process.

3. Insert the coffee filter: Place the coffee filter with the ground coffee on the bottom part of the moka pot. Make sure that the filter is firmly in place and that no coffee particles can fall through.

4. Heating the moka pot: Place the moka pot on the stove and heat it over medium heat. Make sure the handle is not above the stove to avoid burns. The water in the bottom of the moka pot will heat up and create pressure that will push the coffee up through the filter.

5. Enjoy your coffee: As soon as the coffee rises through the valve into the upper chamber of the moka pot, remove the pot from the stove and then cool the lower part of it with a wet cloth to stop the brewing process. Ideally: serve the coffee immediately.
