    I would recommend after thoroughly washing the pot to get rid of any residues, making 3 batches and dumping them to "season" the pot before you start drinking the coffee. It's not Espresso per se, you're not using bars of pressure like a true Espresso Machine does but I love this method and I've been using a Moka Pot everyday for the last few years. I also prefer a good Italian Roast ground coarser, more towards a cone or flat filter brewer and my 9 cup Moka Pot produces one giant killer cup.

    Bottom part where the 'ground coffee beans' goes – expresso is merely an optional end result of applying boiling water to coffee beans ground to various sizes of grind

    I have Bialetti 10 cup Venus version – I own the 10 cup size – so,  using three scoops – plastic scoop came with it –  I grind real Arabica / European Continental fresh beans – I use 2 x scoops of fresh – then 1 x scoop of Lavazza – shop bought – to achieve my blend – NOTE 10 cup makes 2 x mugs – almost no milk bit of Demerara Sugar – perfick ——- Warning 1 – when tightening do not use plastic handle as a lever – it will snap – Warning 2 – do not boil bottom water chamber dry each time – it will both rust right through and only last a year and  – you can not buy bottom chamber in UK or on Amazon seperately.  On my second one because I kept boiling dry  and a big hole appeared in bottom – it just collapsed – but this is the best coffee EVER 😉  None of that stupid over priced carton / portioned Geworge Clooney advertised machine emptying your wallet stuff for me thank you !! All the best PS use big oven gloves to tighten, using thumb to gently, gently, gently push against lever / lid join – then pop on stove

    I saw on a PBS show where they compared this to other espresso methods and said this stacked up well … but you did have to pack it in a little bit.  I do and my coffee is pretty good.  I was thinking since I add milk to my coffee of putting milk up in the top part so that if I did happen to wait too long it would not heat up the entire rig and affect the coffee.

    I like the coffee from these things better than espresso because it is not so hot and does not get the bitter oils.  Plus these cool machines cost less, are simpler and easier to clean and do as good a job as Starbucks without the lines and BS.

    I like these things … if you don't mind my asking, where did you get it, and how much was it?  I have an aluminum one and I want to get the stainless version because I've heard that coffee being acidic can leach aluminum from the container.  Do you still like it.  Mine makes really kick ass coffee, quick and easy to clean.

    Will do & thanks for the feedback. The box says espresso. Its not as strong as the common espresso but its a good cup and way better than just regular coffee pot batch!

    hey rascarlos, just to clear things out, the coffee from moka pot is not espresso, because extraction pressure from the moka pot is only 1-1,5 bars and for espresso one needs 9 bars +-1 bar, anyway keep up drinking good coffee 🙂

    You got it right. It does say 6 cup…but it really only renders enough for 1-2 people. It makes a great cup of coffee. Its my preferred method for strongest coffee before work or for working out.

    I don't understand the 6 cup description. It seems that it does 1 to 2 cups, at best. You put water in it as high as it said to do but there is no way that is 6 cups. What am I missing or not understanding?

    Hi Rascarlos… about your pronunciation of espresso is not offensive; is just a so common word that is obvious to react at the sound of x in the word. As I guess you'll continue to create videos about coffee, it'll be good to correct the word… no bad feeling from anyone, I guess..
    And hope to see your next video in youtube….

    Thanks for your feedback @Alfrhern Thanks to you and @UFOgospel I am now very much aware of my pronunciation of the word "ESpresso". I do apologize if my incorrect pronouncing offends anyone else. The video is already made but I truly do hope this video helps anyone considering a "stove top percolator/espresso" maker. And if u decide to get one..pay a little bit more and go for stainless steel instead of aluminum.

    Thanks for the reply. You are correct; I accidentally said "Splenda" when I meant to say "Stevia", I would never use that Splenda poison. And I do have the bad habit of calling it expresso when its really called espresso. Thanks for calling me out. I normally use either plain cinnamon, a teaspoon of raw sugar or coconut sugar.

    eSpresso, no eXpresso. Splenda/sucralose/aspartame are accumulative toxins, It eats away at the nervous system. Of course it will not have calories, it's a chemical. Organic sugar and rapadura(evaporated cane juice granules with minerals in tact) is allot(more like infinitely) healthier/tastier compared to artificial chemical sweet stuff. If you chew gum, be careful cause it's in that as well.
