The Moka Pot is the perfect tool for brewing intense, espresso-like coffee without the need for a pricey espresso machine. Simple and quick to brew, Moka Pots are also easy to clean and maintain with replacement parts relatively easy to find.

Brew Method: Pressure
Grind Setting: Fine Medium to Fine
Estimated Time: 5/7 min.


Before you start, fill your kettle with filter water and bring it to the boil. Using hot water in a Moka pot helps avoid giving the coffee a metallic taste.

Step 1: Gather Equipment and Ingredients
Make sure you have a Moka pot, freshly ground coffee beans (medium-fine grind), filtered water, a heat source (stovetop or induction plate), dry kitchen towel, and a coffee grinder if needed.

Step 2: Disassemble and Fill the Moka Pot
Unscrew the Moka pot’s top and remove the funnel filter basket. Fill the water chamber with hot filtered water (just off the boil) up to just below the safety valve level. Avoid overfilling.

Step 3: Add Coffee Grounds
Place the funnel filter basket back into the lower chamber. Add the freshly ground coffee into the filter basket. Level the grounds but avoid packing them too tightly. Do not tamp coffee.
* Use the dry kitchen towel when handling the water chamber, it will be hot from the water inside.

Step 4: Reassemble the Moka Pot
Carefully screw the top part of the Moka pot onto the bottom chamber, ensuring a snug fit.
* Use the dry kitchen towel when handling the water chamber, it will be hot from the water inside.

Step 5: Heat the Moka Pot
Preheat the heat source so that the heating and brewing starts immediately. Place the Moka pot on the heat source. Use medium heat to prevent scorching the coffee. Position the handle away from the heat source to avoid accidents.

Step 6: Keep an Eye on the Process
The coffee should gradually start to flow into the coffee chamber. If it comes through too fast, the heat is too high. If it barely comes through at all, you’ll need to turn up the heat.
* Make a note of the heat setting that works best to ensure the best results for your future brews.

Step 7: Remove from Heat
Once you hear a hissing sound and see coffee filling the top chamber, remove the Moka pot from the heat source. Run cold water from a tap over the hot water chamber to rapidly stop the brewing process – this avoid coffee from over-brewing and ‘burning’ which could make the coffee overly bitter in taste. The brewing process is now complete.

Step 8: Serve and Enjoy
Carefully pour the brewed coffee into your cup. It will have a strong and intense flavor. You can also dilute it with hot water or steamed milk to your preference. Add sugar or sweeteners if desired.

Step 9: Clean the Moka Pot
Disassemble the Moka Pot and rinse all parts with warm water and wipe clean with a dry cloth. Avoid using soap to preserve the pot’s ‘seasoning’. Ensure all components are dry before storing.
* If the Moka Pot is new and being used for the first time, to avoid a metallic taste, brew 2-3 pots of coffee before brewing a pot for consumption. This is a great way of getting rid of any old coffee.

Remember to experiment with the coffee-to-water ratios and fine tune your grind setting to find your perfect brewing recipe – Happy brewing!
