Authentic espresso – The Italian way

It’s one of the most traditional and common coffee gadgets which is called moka pot or stove top coffee maker.

I enjoy my coffee maker a lot. My coffee maker is a Pedirini 1942, and produces a delicious coffee or espresso with that authentic Italian taste.

Every time after making coffee, hand wash the coffee maker with hot water. Don’t use the dish washer. Always keep the coffee maker clean.

  • coffee maker

Instructions

  • Fill the funnel with coarse ground coffee. Level off with your finger and do not press
    it. Remove any grounds from the lip of funnel for a secure seal.
  • Pour hot water in the bottom pot (base pot).Place the funnel on the base.
  • Use a napkin and grab the base pot with hot water and seal the it tightly.
  • Place the coffee maker on stove on a low heat. Keep the top cup open. Wait until steam
    is being forced up through the coffee grounds.
  • Once coffee starts to flow, you will hear a gurgling sound. It means you should remove
    it from the heat
  • and place bottom of the coffee maker inside a cold water bath for few seconds. This stops the brewing process and prevents a burnt flavour.
