The Moka Pot is a classic brewing method with strong Italian roots. Patented in 1933 by inventor Luigi De Ponti for Alfonso Bialetti, the Moka Pot has spent over three quarters of a century as one of the most recognizable at-home coffee solutions (especially in Europe).

Easy to use, this pressurized brewing technique brews very strong coffee. It’s strong enough to sip on lightly like espresso, enjoy with steamed milk, or cut with hot water for a bigger, less intense drink.

STEP 1

Add the hot water to the bottom chamber of the moka pot. Add the filter basket, then add the ground coffee and level it out.

STEP 2

Screw on the top chamber of the moka pot. Be careful; use a towel when you are doing this as the moka pot is very hot.

STEP 3

Place the pot on a stove set to a medium heat. Remove the pot once you can see the coffee becoming very clear coming from the spout.

STEP 4

Run the pot under cold water to stop the brewing process

STEP 5

Serve and enjoy!
