Style with Ease: The Moka Pot

Coffee doesn’t always have to be complicated to make it fancy. Here’s a classic way to blend style with ease. 

Step One:
Grab your moka pot and separate different components. 

Step Two:
Grind enough coffee that will comfortably fill the filter basket. Amount ranges from 15- 22 grams depending on size of pot. Ground coffee should feel like table salt. 

Step Three:
Preheat water, remove from heat, and pour into the bottom chamber just to the edge of the valve. 

Step Four:
Put filter basket into bottom chamber and fill with ground coffee, slightly mounded.

Step Five:
Distribute coffee evenly over surface, with your finger.  Remove excess coffee. Make sure to do it lightly and not pack it down. 

Step Six:
Using hot pads screw top and bottom portions together. Don’t over tighten. 

Step Seven:
Place pot on stove over medium heat, leaving top lid open, and wait until you hear a consistent bubbling sound, at which point it’s ready to enjoy!
