Espresso & Moka Pots

Espresso & Moka Pots is two popular coffee machines, which have enjoyed a steady rise in popularity since they were first introduced. The moka pot is an electrical or stovetop coffee brewer that brews hot coffee by passing hot water through finely ground coffee over medium heat. Named after the Yemeni town of Mocha, it was originally invented by Italian designer Alfonso Bialetti in the 33rd year of his life and quickly became one of the most prominent and indispensable staples of Italian culinary culture. So much so that a number of restaurants dedicated to offering only original espresso and moka pots to their customers now exist in Italy and abroad.

Stovetop Espresso  Moka Pots

 

The most distinctive characteristic of this type of coffee maker is that it uses a thermal mass which is composed of a heating plate which can be adjusted to the individuals desired strength. In doing so, it allows for a number of different brewing methods namely: regular, short grind, long grind, espresso and macchiato. Each of these brewing methods has its own distinct advantages which make them ideal for particular occasions. For instance, a regular coffee brewer may not be able to produce a fine espresso which would be perfect for making a cappuccino or just spending an afternoon with friends discussing the day's events.

 

With a stovetop espresso maker, however, one can make several cups at once, depending on how many pots there currently are on the market. A regular or traditional stovetop espresso maker makes use of a thermal mass which heats up water and then passes it over grounds held in a basket. When the water reaches a boil, the steam is forced through the grounds to produce the espresso. The moka pot uses a different heating method that ensures the brewing process takes place at a slower pace so that a more intense coffee flavour can be achieved. Both kinds of pots are known for having the best tasting coffee.

 

Moka pots do not actually contain the water but rather an additional filter made from cotton. This filter is placed into the pot as part of the initial brewing process and helps to eliminate most of the grease and grime from the coffee grounds. It also traps the aroma-causing particulates within the water and produces a superior tasting coffee. Moka pots are usually larger than standard stovetop espresso makers to ensure a greater surface area.

 

Due to their size, most pots are also considered to be high quality equipment. A stainless steel pot is one of the most durable and long lasting pots on the market. They can last for a number of years depending on how often they are used. Their durability makes them a great investment, whether starting out a home business or trying to increase the quality of your current coffee making setup.

 

The only downside to using moka pots as opposed to a stovetop one is that it can take several hours longer to brew a good amount of coffee due to the extra time required to heat the water. This is not an issue if you are going to be making one or two cups at a time. If you plan to make an entire pot of coffee, however, it is recommended that you use a stovetop espresso maker. This will ensure that all of your coffee is evenly mixed and that the taste of your coffee is more consistent.

 

Once you have decided to invest in one of these pots, you should make sure that you learn about the different levels of moka pots that are available. First, you have your choice between a French Press and a Drainette. French presses work much like the original type of coffee press used in coffee houses. A French press can essentially put all of the coffee grinds inside the pot, allowing the coffee to brew in its own manner. Drainettes are very similar, except they allow the coffee to drain through a drip tray instead of allowing the grounds to accumulate in the bottom of the pot.

 

If you choose a stovetop espresso & moka pot, you should be aware that it has the same amount of power as any other regular sized pot. This means that you should be careful not to overheat your moka pot and ruin your coffee. With the numerous accessories available for purchase today, there is certainly no shortage of ways to enhance your enjoyment of coffee, including espresso and more potties!
