MOKA POT BREW GUIDE

A classic of the European stovetop, the attractive little Moka pot is making a comeback with coffee purists.

TOOLS

  • Moka Pot
  • Coffee
  • Grinder
  • Scale
  • Timer

DIRECTIONS

  • Grind 20g of coffee fine
  • Unscrew the Moka pot and fill the lower pot with water that’s fresh off the boil.
  • Place the portafilter into the top of the lower pot, and add coffee. Tap it to settle the bed.
  • Sweep your finger across the coffee to distribute it evenly, left to right then front to back.
  • Screw on the top chamber. Use a towel to hold the bottom as it will now be hot.
  • Set the stove onto medium heat and sit back and listen. At the right heat the pressure should force a stream of water steadily through the coffee into the upper chamber. Too little heat will result in a lethargic action; if it is frenetic turn the heat down. When done you will hear a gurgle and hiss as the water runs out.

Pour carefully (the handle is often hot due to the small size of the Moka pot) and enjoy your coffee!
