How to Make Espresso with a Bialetti Moka Pot
A Moka Pot from Bialetti
Moka pots are still the popular choice among Italians on how to make homemade espresso.
If you're interested in using one, I really recommend it, especially if you enjoy espresso the same way Italians do.
If you think using a moka pot
is complicated and difficult, then you are mistaken. Here's a few tips on how to make espresso with a moka pot.
Basically, the moka pot is just a pot. It has no plug and no buttons.
It has 2 major parts: the top chamber where you put the coffee grounds (use medium grind for best result), and the bottom chamber where you put the water.
Just place it on the stove, and I strongly recommend that you use a low heat to make the best tasting coffee.
Once the coffee reaches the top, it's ready to serve. Do not let the coffee boil; that's why you need to use low heat. And for the final step, enjoy!
Sure, it isn't as simple as putting grounds in the basket and pushing buttons, but it is still simple nevertheless.
Besides, a moka pot will always outlast even the most expensive espresso machine. And, you can take it anywhere. All you need is a flame, coffee grounds, and water.
