All about Making a Moka Coffee (with a "K") with DosaCaffe

In Italy, ordering a Caffe Moka is quite different from, say, than calling for a Mocha coffee in America.  To sound alike is not to taste alike, coffee-style.  DosaCaffe helps you get the unqiue moka flavor right every time.

Moka Espresso Brewing Tutorial

This is a quick tutorial on the stovetop espresso maker. It is also known as a Moka Pot and is sold under the name Bialetti. Let’s get started.

#1 Fill the Bottom Chamber with Water

Fill the bottom chamber with cold water. Stumptown Coffee advises pre-heating the water, so the coffee doesn’t cook on the stove. That may be a good idea if you use the large 6-cup Bialetti, but I found with the 3 cup maker, it made no difference to the taste and was more of a hassle. Try both ways and do whatever works best for you.

Coffee Maker History: The Moka Pot

The beautifully designed Moka Pot, equally ubiquitous and divisive among coffee fans, was invented in 1933 by Luigi di Ponti. The machine was quickly put into production by a mustachioed metal machinist from Piedmont, Alfonso Bialetti, who transformed di Ponti's so-called "Moka Express", an aluminum, pressure-driven stove-top coffee brewer, into one of the most famous, familiar brewers in the world.
