What is a Moka Pot? How to use?

#Moka #pot is the espresso making equipment with the closest taste to the espresso machine. It was designed in 1933 by Alfonso Bialetti, the owner of a company that produces simple and useful kitchen utensils in Italy since the early 1900s.

When the moka pot is placed on the stove, the water heats up and produces steam. This increases the pressure in the lower chamber and pushes the water from the coffee granules up and into the upper chamber where it is ready to be poured.

The pressure formed in the teapot chambers reaches 9 bar in the traditional #espresso machines, while the moka pot reaches 1.5 bar. However, the simplicity of its design and its ability to produce quality cups of coffee make it one of the indispensables.

Working system of moka pot:

#Fill the bottom of the coffee machine up to the valve level with water so that it does not exceed it.

Insert the filter.

Fill the filter up to the brim with coffee, being careful not to overwhelm the coffee.

Screw the two parts of the machine.

Put the mocha on the stove over low heat.

As soon as the coffee rises, when you hear the sound of boiling, unplug the machine.
