Let me start off by making it clear that I am no coffee-making expert, and that the information I attempt to provide here is a product of many other people's advice and experience. Moka pots are a completely new thing for me, but I wanted to try a method of making coffee that would allow me to travel wherever I wanted with it, without the restriction of a mains socket. I also quite liked the primal appeal of doing everything manually.

So this is a meticulously engineered piece of kit, without a shadow of a doubt. For me, it has proven to be well worth the £40, considering decent espresso machines arguably start at around 10 times that. Bialetti really have left no stone unturned, but then I guess they did invent the moka pot, and are Italian, purveyors of the finest coffee in the world. I bought this along with the Bialetti Tuttocrema milk frother - La Cafetiere Bialetti Tuttocrema Frothing Jug, Teflon Non Stick Surface and Double Filter For Extra Frothy Milk, which I have been making fantastic lattes with just recently. Next I will buy the Bialetti espresso cup set to make it a perfect matching collection - Bialetti Man with Coffee Bean Set of Espresso cups and saucers pack of 6.

Before and the first week after I bought it, I spent a huge amount of time researching coffee forums, scouring review sites and studying YouTube videos, trying to find out what other people thought to it, and the results they achieved with it.

I think too many people are being disappointed by this espresso maker, you have to remember that this is not an espresso machine, it won't create the same pressure as a hugely expensive machine would but it does make a damn good cup of coffee.

Everyone has there own tips and tricks, my method is quite simple and it has worked for me, creating far better coffee than any cafe I've been too. Obviously as everyone recommends, source good coffee, doesn't have to be expensive but I would definitely suggest beans and grinding yourself (I treat myself to a monthly Kopi subscription and top up with Coffee Factory black bear (http://thecoffeefactory.co.uk/coffee/black-bear-espresso/) , and use a Krups GVX231 burr grinder - £30 and it works perfectly), aside from that, fill to the water mark or maybe just below, fill the basket just below to top with ground coffee (I use 2 notches above the finest setting on the Krups) and you should be pretty happy with the results. My only other tip is that this machine takes a while to be broken in. I read how you should make a few "throw away" cups once you receive your machine but realistically it took me a month- 2 months of using until finally it started to produce consistently fantastic coffee with plenty of crema. I can't stress enough, don't immediately expect perfect coffee the first time and be put off, stick at it and you'll see what I mean.

If anyone needs any more persuasion or reasons to buy this machine, or even just more "how to" tips, Coffee Geek "confessions of a brikka lover" is a fantastic forum that'll tell you everything you need to know.

Does what it says on the tin and so easy! Let me explain. I have a Gaggia Classic espresso maker at home and a Kitchen Aid burr grinder and they are great but I can't take them abroad camping. But I need espresso first thing in the morning, camping or not. So I purchased one of these (not through Amazon as it happens) and it arrived today. I have experimented using Lavazza Qualita Rossa ground coffee (Sainsbury and Tesco both sell it I think), because I think I am likely to get this Italian ground coffee in Europe while camping and I won't have a grinder. There are two ways to make the coffee, exactly as it says in the instructions, and any other way. Follow the instructions to the letter and it works very well, lots of creamy foam. Deviate from the instructions and it won't. Use the exact quantity of water (fill to the "H2O" mark) but most importantly resist any temptation to press the coffee down. This will be hard to resist if like me you are used to doing it in your espresso maker but in this coffee maker you don't, at all, leave it alone! Spoon it in until full and just let it sit there, all loose, it will look strange, you will want to tap it just a little but don't! Screw the top on tightly otherwise hot water will spurt out the sides and put on the stove. It take 2-3 minutes on high on my electric stove, I haven't tried my gas camping stove. The coffee will suddenly rush out all creamy and remove from the heat immediately and pour. Job done. One word of warning I have the four cup version, there is a two cup too. The four cup does what I regard as one cup of espresso. Maybe I drink big espressos (two every morning!) but I'm going to have to get a second so my wife can have an espresso at the same time without me first having to cool it down and rinse it out which would rather take the fun out of it. I do afterall have two gas burners when camping.
