What’s the most important meal of the day? Breakfast, you say? Close, it’s coffee—fuel for the mind, body, and soul! Coffee can be enjoyed in so many ways. From the slow and steady pour-over and French press to the quick and easy Keurig and basic coffee machines,there are numerous methods to make a cup of joe.
Every method has its pros and cons. The French press has a loyal, cult following among home baristas and coffee enthusiasts as well as a long history of delicious brews. It’s easy to use and gives you a distinct flavor, but steeping takes some trial and error. If you’re looking to be unique and want a challenge, a siphon pot’s got your name on it. It takes an enormous amount of effort and process, but some swear by the results.
Maybe you prefer the highly concentrated, sharp brews of a tried and true coffee maker: the espresso machine. And maybe you don’t want to spend a few hundred bucks for it. Enter the Moka pot, the stovetop espresso maker. It’s the next best thing and for a fraction of the price of an espresso machine without all the gimmicks.
The magic of Moka pots
The magic happens in a Moka pot thanks to its three chambered brew process. First, you pour cold or room temperature filtered water into the lower chamber, just below the valve. Then, fill the funnel with finely ground beans without tamping and tightly screw the upper part of the pot to the base. Place the pot on your stove and wait for a boil. You’ll know it’s ready when coffee starts coming out of the center post and your senses are rushed with the addicting smell of a fresh brew and the satisfying sound of the water gurgling. When the top of the pot is full of coffee, it’s done! Finally, stir the coffee in the upper chamber so that all the different layers are mixed for a delicious flavor. Sounds easy enough!

If you’re sold on a Moka pot, try a Bialetti. Alfonso Bialetti’s Moka Express revolutionized the art of coffee brewing.
