Outstanding I have taken espresso since 1979. This stove-top model will not take up space on the counter. Another asset is the fact that it is stainless steel. Aluminum is unhealthy. The carafe is thick-walled to keep espresso warm for a second cup. This “6-cup” pot holds 6 double demi-tasse (4 oz.) cups of water, or three full American 8 oz. cups of coffee. As a nice plus, the basket for the grounds has a “reducer” plate so you can use fewer grounds when you are making a half-pot. The spout doesn’t drip. With time the heat will turn stainless lower half of the pot a beautiful gold that fades into polished silver. This is a well-made, well-designed unit that is safe to fall in love with because it will always be around and never let you down. When you get it plan to fall in love with it. It uses a special gasket size so get a few with your order. If you are a clean-freak I should note that the inside of the carafe that holds the espresso is a little hard to clean. The opening is narrow and the…
Make coffee fast using the Moka Express by Bialetti, the internationally used coffeemaker for over 50 years. The Moka Express brews your coffee in 3 to 6 minutes. Prime aluminum ensures a blemish free exterior with quality machined screw threads for good
Simple. Consistent. Tasty. Bialetti. My wife and I have been spending a pretty penny at the local coffee shop, so I began looking for inexpensive home alternatives. Most of the coffee snobs claim you have to purchase a $200+ machine and $150+ grinder to have a decent cup of espresso. I turned instead to the frugal Italians. They did invent the stuff, afterall. My Bialetti Moka Express coffee pot came this afternoon. I was a little concerned that a $20 pot might not meet the high standards of the gourmet beverages wifey and I have become accustomed to. I was wrong. The brew made by this ingenious little pot is a little weaker than “pumped” espresso and lacks the foamy cap (crema) that all the snobs rave about, but mixed with some hot, frothed milk and a bit of chocolate syrup I couldn’t tell the difference between Bialetti and Seattle’s Best.
This rich brew comes from a tiny little aluminum contraption with no moving parts, no electronic gizmos, no pump handle and virtually no wait time or clean-up. You just…

Holy Grail of moka pots I love this moka pot. I could not be happier with it. It makes coffe at home that is as good as any coffee shop I have ever been to. I would strongly recommend buying the 10 cup version as it’s two regular size cups of coffee. It is absolutely beautiful and extremely well made.

Not sure I would buy it again. So far so good, but not great. Works, drips when pouring, but my old one did too. I think it’s the nature of the beast. Instructions say use only coarse ground…but espresso uses fine? I’m confused now. I wish I could see when it’s done “cooking” since I can’t hear it finish like I could my old Italian 1 cup one (and the old one had a “window” in the top too). This new one hasn’t made as good an espresso yet, but may need to be used more first (I’ve used it 6 or 8 times and threw the first three batches out as recommended) and I need to find just the right grind and amount to get as good a flavor as my old one. So far, not impressed. I think I’ll buy a new gasket for my old one (I burnt it up) and make it one cup at a time again. sigh.

Traditional simplicity. A friend from Italy gifted to me this Bialetti 3 cup stove-top espresso maker. She said this is a staple of all Italian kitchens. I can see why! Making my morning espresso is as simple as boiling water. And the results are the same every time—delicious! Keep in mind that “3 cup” means 3 espresso cups not 3 measure cups. I personally drink all 3 cups myself (isn’t that the American way???) sometimes straight and sometimes with enough milk to fill a regular coffee mug. I should also note that my friend says that ILLY brand coffee is considered by most Italians to be the best coffee. I highly recommend both the Bialetti espresso maker and the ILLY coffee.
With all the expensive espresso makers sold around the world, native Italians prefer espresso from stovetop espresso makers and more Italians use Bialetti for their stovetop Italian coffee. For an excellent cup of Italian coffee, the classic eight-side household coffeepot is considered a true Italian tradition. The Moka Espress boasts a lot of records and, as such, is the most copied coffee-maker! With sturdy aluminum construction, the Moka Express is a product that actually improves with constant use. The unit is extremely simple to use. Just fill the lower chamber with water and the filter with ground espresso coffee. Place the pot on the stove and heat until the water boils. As it does, the liquid espresso moves to the upper chamber of the pot, ready to be poured into an awaiting espresso cup. After that, all you need to do is enjoy the delicious nectar of coffee.
Fantastic Coffee Maker!! Makes better espresso then most of the espresso shops here in Java Town, Seattle. It also costs about ten times less then an espresso machine that probably won’t make as good coffee, and eventualy will need repair. Bialetti has been making these things since the dawn of time and have it down to a science.
A few tips: 1. Grind coffee between medium and fine. 2. Don’t pack coffee into basket like you do in an espresso machine. 3. Heat between medium and high heat. 4. Be careful not to have the handle be over the burner of flame. 5. NEVER WASH THE POT WITH DETERGENT. JUST RINSE AND DRY. The more you use the pot,the better the coffee becomes. 6. Before using for the first time season the pot. Make a pot of weak coffee and discard it.
