    Great video that looks at the humble Moka Pot in a whole new way.

    It's great to see someone try and quantify what's going on rather than just taking an educated guess

    Thank you for posting this very interesting video, not just the content, but the whole production is interesting and enjoyable.

    And glad to see that my preferred method of use with my own moka pot meets with their approval.

    They do require management to get the best result, they are a good if little machine, and they offer a worthwhile alternative to using a pump driven machine.

    Now will the real espresso brewing method please stand up !

    I think I'll revisit mine, great video.

    They don't call it the poor man's espresso for nothing.
    Millions of Italians can't be wrong...

    Makes a good strong brew.

    So, I got the Bialetti out as I've been wanting been wanting to try it out with fresh beans as I mainly used it with stale preground coffee.
    The difference was quite astonishing and the resultant Mussolini made with steamed milk was quite delicious. Spurred on by this I broke out the stainless steel pot and and hey presto! a cup of frothy Berlusconi...

    Hi Kavekalmar

    Good effort. It finally explains why my stainless Carmencita can hold its own to most espresso machines, although I had to preheat the water to 58 Celsius to nail it. It took me years to get it consistently up to scratch, as I was used to a La Cimbali commercial machine at work and uni and wanted the same result at home using the same model Major(?) grinder. Then I got richer and went to a La Pav 2 group because it was easier and I could get crema. I still use the Carmencita for car camping trips (Hario then Pharos grinders) and still have a queue wanting a coffee out of it when I camp.

    I have got to get one of those valves!
