brew time 5-6 Minutes
what you'll need

4-cup Bialetti Moka Express


15-17g (2½ tablespoons) coffee – fine grind

Hot water just off the boil

  • For best results start with whole bean coffee and grind with a burr grinder just before brewing.
  • High heat or leaving moka pot on flame for too long will turn a good cup of coffee into a scorched one.
  • Relax and have fun with this – brewing coffee is not an exact science.
  • Add water – filling to the line in the bottom of the brewer.
  • Insert filter basket.
  • Fill filter basket with coffee grounds and level off with your finger.
  • Brush away loose grounds on the top edge of the filter basket before securing top and bottom chamber together.
  • Place over a low to medium flame on your stove.
  • When the water in the bottom chamber approaches a boil, pressure will build and push coffee to the top chamber.
  • Remove from flame as soon as the top chamber is filled with coffee.
  • Serve and enjoy.
