In 1933, Alfonso Bialetti devised the brilliant idea of the unique, original Moka Express. An excellent example of Art Deco, the Moka has a design that has been perfected over the years to make this icon an increasingly ergonomic, elegant device, while maintaining the same functional features that have made it perfect in its simplicity: the collection chamber, octagonal aluminium boiler and unique, inspectable, easy to clean valve.
Body material: aluminium#Handle material: thermoplastic#Knob material: thermoplastic#Easy-clean safety valve#Not suitable for use on induction plates#Not dishwasher safe#Boiler base diameter: 68 mm#Height: 141 mm#Capacity: 90 ml – approximate figure: it can vary according to the quantity of water inserted and the quantity, blend and grind of the coffee.
1. Start by pouring the water at room temperature into the Moka boiler and filling it up to the level of the safety valve. To avoid making your coffee too watery, do not fill it over this level. 2. Now choose your preferred ground coffee blend. Caution! The blend must be specifically ground for a Moka pot and not excessively fine. Generously fill the Moka pot's funnel, without pressing down the coffee. 3. A little secret? Set the heat to low and take all the time necessary; it is worth waiting a few minutes longer so that you can enjoy an excellent coffee.
