Bialetti's Mukka Express, the market's first stove-top cappuccino maker, has taken on a whole new look for 2006! Following last year's successful launch of the original and fun, black and white cow print design, Bialetti has opted for sophistication with the introduction of polished aluminium and polished and black aluminium versions.
Italian-based manufacturer Bialetti has been producing stove-top espresso pots since the 1930s and is the name behind the traditional stove-top style of pot, the Moka Express. The Mukka Express is the company's latest innovation and combines this traditional style of coffee maker with a larger size pot for holding the milk.
The Mukka Express works by allowing the steam pressure from creating the coffee to pass through the milk, resulting in froth.
So simple to use for a great cappuccino:
For a caffè latte, leave the button in the up position so as not to produce froth.
Looking for the perfect cappuccino&
The Italians are world experts on coffee and Bialetti undertook extensive research for the Mukka Express. Coffee bars the length and breadth of Italy were visited by its new product development team and samples of cappuccino were analysed to test the optimum strength, flavour, temperature, foam depth and consistency all to ensure that the Mukka Express would produce that perfect cup of Italian cappuccino! The fabulous Mukka Express is a patented design and available exclusively in the UK from hot drinks experts La Cafetière.

I also found that full fat milk gives much more/better froth that semi-skimmed milk, the full fat milk froth is quite fluffy, just like the shop coffee, so you have to open the lid to get all of it!
Before attempting to removing the base after use, you must let it cool down to a comfortable temperature, lift the value top, then remove the valve, to release the pressure difference, otherwise you may damage it or yourself.
The base is quite large and smooth (like a small milk pan) and can be hard to grip, so I would advise keeping a large Boa Constrictor rubber strap wrench handy; note a Baby Boa is too small.
Only makes two cups no more no less.
The problem in my case - after a month, the pressure valve cracked(a fine line).
I had several Mukka in the past(even electric ones) and it's the same problem every time, no matter how much care or washing you try: the pressure valve break in a way or another. And the replacement is at almost have of the machine's price.
Some points in consideration (to answer other reviews with my own feedback):-
If you fill the milk section up with water after use and take out & rinse the steamer nozzle, you can leave it to soak overnight or while you are at work, to save immediate washing up. It is a little fiddly - it can't simply be rinsed and there are several pieces to detach and scrub - but it must be simpler to clean than one of the big industrial type machines!
Sometimes the coffee is hotter than others and we still haven't quite perfected a technique for this - the longer you leave it on the gas, the hotter the coffee, but the less foamy the froth, so it's a trade-off. A quick blast in the microwave solves this problem. My advice on heating is to use the smallest hob ring on high heat and leave it boiling for a minute after the steam button goes up (there is no mistaking when this happens).
Have not had any problems with leaks or opening the water container, although the elderly might have some trouble and you have to cool it under the tap first. We had some difficulty realising where the water and milk 'fill' lines were at first, as they are not marked as such, but the onsite video can help with that; in hindsight the milk one was obvious if you knew what you were looking for! (It's the bevelled ring about a third of the way up the pot.) For the water, the measuring cup is vital, and we were set back at first by receiving a product with a broken measuring cup, but the seller replaced it for us within 10 days.
I would recommend that people follow instructions to the letter, and buy the recommended type of coffee granules, if they want a good result. We have also been blessed in living in one of the few soft-water areas of the UK, so we don't have any trouble with limescale which I can imagine would affect both taste and cleaning. We are very happy with our little Mukka maker and would not hesitate to recommend one to anyone who likes cappucino coffee but does not have the room or budget for a machine. Fantastic little device, glad someone developed it!
Would add to this review that the plastic parts of the steamer nozzle broke around 10 months into use, seems a design flaw where the plastic can't handle high temperatures, and it was difficult to replace the part - the seller does not stock spares, the original company was out of stock, eventually we had to source one on ebay from America! Anyway we have the spare part but it was quite costly and if this goes the same way you'd be looking at paying double the price of the original purchase within 5 years which is not so great; we haven't used it much since. Still a nifty device just be warned.
