Moka Pot Brew Guide

The Moka Pot is synonymous with coffee preparation due to it relative ease of use. It is a stove-top coffee maker in three parts. The bottom-most chamber holds the water, the centre basket contains the coffee grounds, and the upper chamber will store the final coffee. Heat is applied building pressure to push steam through the grounds and up through the tube into the final chamber, resembling a full body brew similar to espresso.

 

  • Measurements: Fill the chamber
  • Grind: Fine
  • Filter: n/a

 

1. Grind enough coffee to fill the filter basket evenly and don’t pack the grounds down.

2. Fill the bottom water chamber up to, but not exceeding the pressure valve.

3. Assemble the entire pot and make sure it is screwed together properly.

4. Place on a heat source at medium heat (95° C) and let sit. Leave the lid up so you can see what’s happening,

5. Once you see the coffee initially make its way to the upper chamber, turn the heat down to about 50% of the original temperature.

6. Remove the pot from your heat source when the coffee reaches the bottom of the spout or all the water is spent. This should take between 4 and 5 minutes.

7. Pour, relax and enjoy.
