1) the moka machine is THE italian way of home coffee brewing; espresso electric machines are beginning to spread, but the "caffettiera" is how we italians typically make coffee.
2) bialetti is commonly known as the best brand on the market.
3) don't heap the coffee too much in the funnel, it should be just a little over the brim of the funnel; leave it fairly loose and above all DON'T press it down.
4) screw tight the top chamber, and always make sure the gum sealing ring is in good conditions - change it 2 or 3 times a year, or when you see it dry and/or cracked.
3) put the caffettiera on LOW heat, lid down.
4) check out the top chamber now and then, if you want, and turn off the heat when you see the coffee's filled the top chamber; but remember that the most important sign the coffee's ready is when you hear the coffee *just beginning to gurgle* in the top chamber. turn off the heat now!
5) before pouring the coffee, stir it gently; actually, i don't know if it's only a legend, but it seems the first coffee out is the stronger, the last out the milder, so stirring it should produce an even mix. anyway, in italy we always stir it before pouring!
p.s. - not an italian use, but once in a while i add to the coffee grounds in the funnel just the tip of a spoon of cinnamon, or two o three grains of cardamon, or even a dash of szechuan pepper - nice result; you can experiment with your own spiced coffee ...
On to the 3-cup Bialetti Moka Express: Fill the bottom section with cold water up to just below the valve, drop in the funnel and loosely fill it with ground coffee ensuring it's level and there are no grounds on the rim and then screw on the top section and place it over a low heat. When it gurgles the coffee is done so remove it from the heat. That's all it takes to make very high quality coffee.
Some people will say to fill it with hot or even boiling water. But if you do that you'll first of all burn your hand because it will get hot. Secondly you won't get a full pot of coffee because a lot of the water will uncondense and flow back into the lower chamber. A moka pot works best when started with cold water over a low heat.
Again some people say to adjust the strength of the coffee by adjusting the amount of coffee while others complain that it doesn't make full cups: No, no, no. The funnel is still filled and the strength is adjusted by diluting the finished coffee with water for an Americano or milk for a Cappuccino or Latte. Remember what I said at the beginning: It's Espresso so what you get is Espresso shots, in fact 3 of them in the 3-cup size and what we usually but not always do with Espresso shots is dilute them.Read more ›
This 3-cup version makes the perfect Americano for one. Fill the pot with 2 scoops of coffee and you end up with half a mug of espresso. Top it up with hot water and a little milk, if you want it, and get ready to waft away in to coffee heaven. If you are looking for a pot to make at least a couple of regular mugs of coffee then you need a 6-cup pot.
And forget about these heat distributors you can buy separately. You only need one if the frame on your cooker (above the gas flame) is too wide/big for the pot to sit on. This 3-pot version sits on the frame on my cooker hob no problem. Then just keep the gas quite low so you don't wear out the pot and its seals unnecessarily quick.
