You Won’t Believe What This Guy Did With a Moka Pot

Moka PotIf you asked us a couple months ago, we would have told you that it’s impossible to make a good cup of coffee with a moka pot. Although this stovetop espresso maker is seemingly ubiquitous across the European continent, our only experience with moka pots have been bitter, acrid, and unenjoyable. But then we stumbled upon this video from Kávékalmár on James Hoffmann’s blog. To summarize, we haven’t questioned our coffee presuppositions so much since we watched Matt Perger’s 2013 WBC routine. After watching this video we feel like we need to add a moka pot to our brew arsenal, not to mention some thermocouples!

  1. A moka pot is really useful when you’re on the long road and don’t have the machine with you. Can’t count how many times I’ve brought my moka pot with me when I go camping.

  2. My wife always could make a good cup of coffee using a moka pot, but my brew always turns out bitter. I usually just use my chemex but maybe I’ll have to revisit the Moka pot too.
