The Bialetti Moka celebrates more than 80 years of classic design elegance and technological simplicity.
The Moka produces a rich, authentic espresso in just minutes. The aluminum pot features Bialetti’s distinctive eight-sided shape that allows it to diffuse heat perfectly to enhance the aroma of your coffee.
The flavour of Moka pot coffee depends greatly on bean variety, roast level, fineness of grind, water profile, and the level of heat used.
Moka pots are sometimes referred to as stove-top espresso makers and produce coffee with an extraction ratio similar to (but somewhat higher than) that of a conventional espresso machine. The resultant brew has increased extraction of caffeine and flavours from the grounds versus filter coffee, resulting in a stronger brew than that obtained by drip brew methods.
However a typical Moka coffee is extracted at relatively low pressures of 1 to 2 bar while standards for espresso coffee specify a pressure of 9 bar. Therefore, Moka coffee is not considered to be a true espresso and has different flavour characteristics.
