Coffee preparation in Moka pot is a classic homemade alternative to espresso and it already has more than 80-year tradition. Aluminium Moka pot with a typical octagonal curving was invented by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933. The more coffee you prepare in your Moka pot, the better it would taste. Aluminium is porous material and with using there is created a specific coffee coating on the inner side which prevents brewed coffee to taste metal. For this reason, it is not recommended to wash the pot with detergents that would dissolve the coffee coating.
This pot is used to prepare 4 cups of coffee.
Coffee prepared in Moka pot is characterized by a strong and slightly bitter taste.
