Moka Pot Brew Guide

Moka Pot Brew Guide

A Moka pot is a simple and inexpensive coffee brewer that allows you to create full-bodied, espresso-style coffee using a cooker hob or stove.

Think of the coffee brewed as a "shot" of coffee rather than a long coffee, you can then top the "shot" up with water and/or milk as desired.

Heres's our Moka Pot brew guide:

  • Put the kettle on to boil.
  • Unscrew the top and bottom of the Moka pot, remove the coffee basket.
  • Pour freshly boiled water into the lower chamber of the pot to just under the valve.
  • Add finely-ground coffee to the coffee basket and evenly level it off (do not press or tamp the coffee down).
  • Screw the top and bottom back together, ensuring both parts form a good seal (wear oven gloves if the pot is too hot to touch).
  • Add the Moka pot to the stove and turn the heat on to a medium-low level.
  • Leave the lid up to watch the coffee extract into the top chamber (this should be a steady flow).
  • Remove from the heat as soon as the flow becomes a foam-like consistency and blows air bubbles.
  • Run the bottom of the pot under cold water to quickly cool and stop any over extracting.
  • Pour the brewed coffee into you desired cup, then top up with water and/or milk.
