Moka Pot

Simple step-by-step guide to brew your coffee using a Moka Pot.
  1. Fill the Bottom Chamber: Fill the bottom chamber of the Moka Pot with hot water just below the safety valve. Use freshly boiled water to speed up the brewing process.
  2. Insert the Filter and Add Coffee: Place the filter basket into the bottom chamber. Fill the basket with finely ground coffee, leveling it off without compacting. Ensure there is no coffee on the rim or threads.
  3. Assemble the Moka Pot: Screw the top chamber tightly onto the bottom chamber, ensuring a secure fit. Use a towel or oven mitt as the pot will be hot.
  4. Heat the Moka Pot: Place the Moka Pot on a stove over medium heat. Make sure the handle is not directly over the flame. Close the lid to allow pressure to build up inside the pot.
  5. Brew the Coffee: As the water in the bottom chamber heats up, steam pressure will force the water through the coffee grounds and into the top chamber. You'll hear a gurgling sound during this process. Once the top chamber is filled with coffee, remove the Moka Pot from the heat.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Before pouring the coffee, briefly run the bottom chamber under cold water to stop the extraction and prevent over-extraction. Pour the coffee into cups and enjoy it as is or add hot water or steamed milk for variations like an americano or latte.

Remember, these brewing instructions are general guidelines. Feel free to adjust the coffee-to-water ratios, brewing times, and other variables to suit your taste preferences and the specific equipment you have.
