What Makes a Stovetop Espresso Coffee Pot So Unique

Who makes the best coffee? Italians, of course. That’s why Stovetop espresso maker, also known as Moka pot, or la macchinetta (lit: small machine) is simply a must-have item for all true coffee-lovers. Now that the holidays are just around the corner, consider treating yourself to something nice, like a quality stovetop espresso maker -- you won't regret it.

I’ve been using it for quite some time now, and I can’t imagine starting my day without it. What I can tell you from my own experience is that instant coffees are nowhere near the coffee that you get when using the Moka pot. Stick around to find out why.

 

About Stovetop Moka pots

La macchinetta is most commonly used in Italy and in other parts of Europe, as well as in Latin America. This famous aluminum/stainless steel stovetop percolator was first designed back in 1933, and has been an inevitable item in every Italian kitchen ever since. These cute coffee pots will produce a perfect espresso every time. And the best thing is that they’re easy to use -- no fancy tricks that you need to learn. Everyone can master it within a few minutes. Plus, they’re quite low-maintenance. 

Brewing espresso in Moka 

Once you get to know your Moka, you’ll forget about all the other coffee makers. The mechanism of work is similar to that of a pressure cooker. Moka stovetop works by releasing hot water that’s been pushed by the steam up through the Moka coffee to produce an authentic, strong espresso coffee.
