Stovetop Moka Pot

The Moka pot is a traditional brewing method invented in the 1930s in Italy. It brews coffee by passing boiling water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. It is known for brewing a strong, full-bodied concentrated coffee similar to an espresso. Moka uses around 2 bars of pressure so it’s technically not an espresso (which uses at least 9 bars of pressure) but it is an easy, accessible brewing method that allows you to brew a coffee similar to espresso without owning an espresso machine. Moka pots come in a variety of sizes, brands, and material compositions, with the most iconic model being Bialetti Moka Express, made in Italy.
