Delighted with my tassimo replacement
on 7 January 2015
Really very pleased with this item.
I am a newbie to Moka pots so didn't want an expensive one if I wasn't going to get on with it.
I'm sure that it isn't as well made as many - but it makes a beautiful cup of espresso - my gingerbread lattes are divine!!
I use mine on gas - so put it on the lowest setting - it takes about 5 mins. I haven't had an overspill (as seen on youtube!) and keep the top open as per other advice. I also haven't had any leaks at all as I always check that the bottom is on tight.
Only clean it with water - no soap - it leaves a coffee "film" inside it. Simply wipe this out with a paper towel.
Cheaper than a Tassimo
No waste (use grounds in your garden)
Coffee is hotter than in a Tassimo
Was worried about the handle on my stove - no issue
Build as expected for a cheap moka pot!
Extra seal included
More economical than pods
Really easy to clean
Buy a milk frother for a real coffee shop latte!!! (Andrew James)
I'm drinking more coffee
