Grind Level: Coarse

How to Brew:

Items you will need:

Moka Pot

Kettle

Grinder

Timer

Scale

Coffee

 

Step 1:

Weigh and grind about 20-22 grams of coffee.

Step 2:

Fill the bottom half of your Moka pot with freshly boiled water up to the release valve.

Step 3:

Place the ground coffee into the pot’s filter basket. Give it a gentle shake to settle the grounds evenly. Remove any ground coffee that is on the lip of the filter for a  good seal. Place the filter into the bottom compartment.

Step 4:

Screw on the top piece of the Moka Pot. Use caution as the bottom half will be hot.

Step 5:

Place the pot on a stove that is set to medium heat.

Step 6:

Once the bottom chamber starts to boil, the pressure will cause the coffee to slowly be pushed into the upper chamber. When the process is done you will hear a hissing, bubbling sound.
Take away: If the coffee explodes upward, then your water’s too hot. If it burbles lethargically, then you need to turn up your flame.
