Bialetti is one of the top names in Italian housewares and has been manufacturing stove-top espresso makers since the 1930s. Its Moka Express model is still a best-seller today and all products carry the famous ‘little man with the moustache‘ logo.
The simplest and most accurate definition of ‘espresso’ is hot water being forced under pressure through very finely ground, dark roasted coffee.
Firstly, choose your coffee according to taste and make sure that it is of a finely ground variety, ideal for espresso pots.
> To make the coffee, fill the lower chamber with fresh cold water up to the bottom of the safety valve.
> Fill the filter funnel with finely ground dark roasted coffee, using the back and edge of the spoon to eliminate any possible air pockets in the coffee and any gaps around the rim of the filter.
> The ground coffee should always be level with the top of the basket and well packed – this holds the water longer in the coffee grounds and prevents the coffee being too watery.
> Using your fingers, remove any loose coffee grounds from the outside of the basket rim, and place the coffee basket into the top of the lower chamber.
> Very firmly screw the top half of the pot keeping the bottom chamber containing the water upright, to avoid wetting the grounds too soon.
> Place the espresso pot on a medium heat – (if using on gas, adjust the flame so that it does not extend up the side of the pot). After the water boils, its steam will start to push the water up the funnel and into the coffee.
> Once this happens immediately reduce the heat to very low and when most of the water has left the lower chamber the bubbling sound will become more intermittent. Remove the pot from the heat at this time, wait for the bubbling to ease before serving.
Please note: The ‘Moka Express’ is not suitable for keeping coffee hot or reheating. Never use the coffee pot without water!
