What You’ll Need
- Freshly roasted beanbundle espresso beans
- Moka pot
- Digital Scale
Step 1: Boil Water
Heat the water in your kettle to 200F, or bring water to boil and let sit for 30 seconds.
Step 2: Grinding and Measuring
Moka pot calls for a fine grind, something slightly less fine than powdered sugar. You can grind your beans with a blade grinder but we recommend a burr grinder. Burr grinders produce more evenly sized grains of coffee and a controlled grind size.
We recommend a 1:15 coffee-to-water ratio, but as always adjust to your taste. You will need 30g of coffee and 450g of hot water.
Step 3: The Brew
- Fill the Moka pot up to the valve, about half way, with the hot water
2. Fill the filter basket with fresh grounds, give it a gentle shake to settle the grounds. Place on top of the bottom compartment
3. Screw on the top.
4. Place the whole Moka pot on the stove over medium/medium high heat.
5. When the water in the bottom is boiling, the pressure pushes the coffee upwards into the Moka pot.
Step 4: The Final Product
Troubleshooting: If your coffee is exploding upwards, turn your heat down. If the coffee is barely coming up or doing so very slowly, turn your heat up.
When you hear a hissing or bubbling sound, it means you coffee is ready.
Enjoy your creation!
