Stovetop Espresso Pot
In Italy, espresso is more than just a delicious and refreshing drink. It’s a way of life! The Italians pause throughout the day to savor a rich cup of fresh espresso whenever the mood strikes. However, this was not always the case. Before the Stovetop Espresso Pot was invented, this habit was the exclusive realm of the wealthy.
Just 60 short years ago, Alfonso Bialetti refined the original Stovetop Espresso Pot to create a high-quality device that has become the gold standard of coffee pots in Italy. Before long, every Italian kitchen had this piece of cookware on their stove. Since then, the entire world has discovered the versatility of this simple, but precise, coffee maker.
At Moka Pot, we only sell the highest quality Stovetop Espresso Pots on our site. Because our shop was designed by coffee lovers for coffee lovers, you can trust that we’ve personally used each item. We don’t have a real stamp of approval, but if we did, we’d place it on each coffee maker that flows through our doors. It’s our pleasure to share the following information with you, our valued customer!
Is it a Real Stovetop Espresso Pot?
It’s easy to tell a genuine Stovetop Espresso Pot from a standard coffee pot. Each of these items includes the following features:
- Made in Italy Using Traditional Methods
- Internal Components are 100% Food-Grade Aluminium
- Safe for Gas, Electric and Induction Cooktops
- Includes Three Basic Parts – The Bottom Chamber, The Coffee Basket and the Collection Chamber
How Does a Stovetop Espresso Pot Work?
This coffee maker gently forces steamed water through the coffee basket and into the collection chamber. Because the espresso only passes through the grounds once, the final result is clean and crisp without a trace of bitterness. Extremely smooth and rich, this will be the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted!
Making this rich brew with a Stovetop Espresso Pot is not a rushed affair. It takes about five minutes or slightly longer for the water to transform into quality Italian espresso, but it’s well worth the wait! Once you taste your first cup, you’ll never want to go back to a standard coffee maker.
Is It Really Espresso?
By definition, espresso must be made under a precise pressure using an expensive espresso machine. The affordable Stovetop Espresso Pot makes an espresso-like coffee under a slightly lower pressure. It’s equally strong and tastes just as good. In almost every case, no one can tell the difference. And, we sincerely feel that if it’s good enough for the pickiest Italian coffee lover, it’s good enough for us!
