BREWING WITH A MOKA POT
If you're concerned about any burnt flavors in the resulting brew, you can pre-boil your water in a kettle before pouring into that bottom chamber. This preheating step decreases the time that the coffee grounds are in contact with the hot water, so can help prevent any burnt flavors.
NOTE: If you try this, make sure to watch your hands, because the pot gets HOT.
Build your own recipe!
1 to 2 tablespoons (30 - 60 grams) of coffee for every 5 ounces (150ml) water
Or, try our recipe:
21 - 23 grams coffee (about 2.5 - 3 tablespoons ground) to 345 ml (10oz) water
- Pour water (pre-heated if desired) into bottom of chamber, filling to the valve.
- Place funnel inside the chamber. TIP: If any water enters the funnel, just remove the funnel, pour out some excess water, and replace funnel.
- Fill the funnel with your 21 - 23 grams of coffee. TIP: Level the grounds and wipe the rim of the funnel clean - and no need to press down on the grounds.
- Screw the top of moka pot on tightly. TIP: If you used pre-heated water, use an oven mitt or towel to hold the chamber, as it will be HOT.
- Place moka pot on stove using medium heat.
- When the water in the chamber starts to boil, the resulting pressure will push the water up through the coffee grounds, becoming brewed coffee. This brewed coffee will get pushed into the top chamber.
- When you hear a hissing or gurgling sound, remove the moka pot from heat.
- Let the coffee finish pouring into that upper chamber.
- Pour and enjoy!
