Bialetti Moka Express

Bialetti Moka ExpressI didn’t drink coffee most of my life (although it could be really handy during my army years or right after my daughters were born) but last year I decided to start drinking this bitter-black-magic and yesterday I bought my very first coffee-maker…

I bought a Bialetti-Moka-Express which was claimed (by Bialetti…) to be the world’s number one coffee-maker (I was customer number 200,000,001) and made my very first espresso two hours ago…

This tiny “espresso pot” (a.k.a. moka in Italy) is a simple device that uses steam pressure to force water through a strainer to make espresso so I did feel a little strange putting this tiny pot directly on the burner of my stove and I didn’t really believe it will produce the bitter-black-magic, but it worked like a charm and with very little experience I manage to produce a pretty damn good espresso!

Years of Italian experience have produced a 20$ state-of-the-art coffee-maker which re-defined simplicity… (especially when I first thought of buying a 1500$ one-button coffee-maker monster engine)
