This review is from: Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker, 6 Cup (Kitchen & Home)
I'm still fairly new to the world of coffee snobs (term used affectionately) with different methods of making and drinking coffee and all that jazz, and am used to using a cafetiere. As my first espresso maker, I found it very easy to use and pretty fun: you get to listen for the friendly bubbling noises and watch all the coffee cascade into the top pot from it's little fountain spout.
I would agree with previous reviews in that it says 6 cup, but I find it makes better coffee for 3 cups instead. Also if you're used to using a cafetiere, and tend to drink coffee when half asleep, bear in mind that this is an espresso maker: Many a time I would pour myself a straight cup and get a bit of a surprise when it was a lot stronger than I was expecting.
It doesn't come with a tamper so you'll have to tamp the coffee down gently with your thumb if you want to.
