Moka Pot

  The patent for the Moka Pot belongs to Alfonso Bialetti, who invented it in 1933. The Bialetti company continues to produce very popular brewers to date. 

 

The Bialetti Moka Pot has become an iconic design, displayed in modern industrial art and design museums including the Wolfsonian-FIU, Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper–Hewitt, National Design Museum, the Design Museum, and the London Science Museum.

 

Moka pot, due to the nature of its extraction method is more suited to darker roasts and when taken as milk-based drinks such as a Moka Pot Latte,  Cappuccino or Cafe Cubano Con Leche, etc. 

 

Noteworthy usage tips include Moka pot sizing - a cup in Bialetti terms means about 100ml of beverage. It should also be noted that it’s not possible to make fractional quantities in a Moka Pot. e.g., a two-cup Moka Pot can only be used to make two cups of coffee, not one. 

 

Also, since Moka Pots are often made of Aluminum, they do not work directly on induction hobs. You may need to consider an induction disc for such use.
