A Moka pot (or stove top coffee maker often referred to as a Bialetti ) is an Italian coffee machine that made its way around the world. They were originally popularised during Mussolini’s reign in Italy. It’s made of metal. Usually aluminium or steel with chambers. The premise is simple. Add water to the third bottom chamber which heats up and sends steam through a tube into the ground coffee in the upper chamber which forces thick, espresso style coffee to come out of the top chamber. The beauty of this piece of equipment is you only need two things. You don’t need fancy equipment or even electricity really – it’s ideal if you want to brew right on an open fire while cooking.
