Make hearty, full-bodied coffee on your stovetop.

 

We recommend simply filling the basket (to the top unless otherwise indicated; some have fill lines) and then adjusting to taste. Easy peasy!

 

Need:

 

Moka pot, gas stove or other heat source

 

Coffee nerd options:

 

Grinder, scale

 

 

Recipe basics:

 

Brew time: 5 minutes

Temperature: boiling

Grind setting: fine

Coffee amount: to the top of the brew basket

Water amount: nearly filled to the valve in the bottom chamber

 

 

 

1. Add water to the bottom chamber, making sure not to fill past the pressure relief valve.

3. Assemble the brewer. Not too tight!

4. Apply medium heat, aiming for a slow, steady flow of coffee into the upper chamber, finishing at 5-6 min.

For further exploration:

 

  • Leave the top lid open while brewing for a free show! The coffee stream should start off a deep red/brown in color and progressively lighten toward golden honey.
  • If you’re sensitive to the taste of metal, we recommend opting for a stainless steel moka pot rather than one made of aluminum.
