Espresso at Moka Pot
Making a great espresso could be overwhelming. But nothing that a moka pot, purified water and good beans can’t handle. Here we will guide you for making a delicious and strong concentrated espresso at home.
Have this in hand:
- Moka pot (3 cups)
- Whole bean coffee (or fresh ground)
- Heat resistant towels (for handling the moka pot)
- Coffee mug
Preheat your water close to boiling point (198-205f. +/- adjust to your liking).
Preheating the water allows us to avoid overheating the coffe grounds. And give us better control over the extraction for delicious ending results.
GRIND YOUR COFFEE
As soon as your water boils, grind your whole bean coffee to a fine grind like you would for espresso.
For this recipe your looking at about 20 - 30 grams of coffee (approx 2-3 tablespoons +/- adjust to your liking).
Pre-ground is ok too.
WATER TO THE BOILER POT
Pour the hot water up to the pressure valve of your moka pot (do not overfill beyond the valve, and use those kitchen towels for safe handling )
ADD YOUR COFFEE
Fill the filter basket with your ground coffee and carefully level the surface. Use your finger to brush off the excess grounds.
Insert the filter basket into the bottom half of your boiler pot.
SECURE LID & BREW
Use the kitchen towels to handle the bottom boiler pot for screwing the top server lid.
Next place on the stove or heat source little bit over medium heat and let it brew.
STOP HEATING AND SERVE
After a very short time you’ll see coffee filling up the top server.
Once you see coffee covered the bottom of the top server remove the moka pot from the heat surface and let ends the extraction.
Now you can drink and smile!
