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.
Grab your moka pot and separate different components.
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.
Preheat water, remove from heat, and pour into the bottom chamber just to the edge of the valve.
Put filter basket into bottom chamber and fill with ground coffee, slightly mounded.
Distribute coffee evenly over surface, with your finger. Remove excess coffee. Make sure to do it lightly and not pack it down.
Using hot pads screw top and bottom portions together. Don’t over tighten.
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!
