Bialetti Moka Express® Espresso Makers

The Bialetti two-part cast aluminum espresso pot has long set the standard for stovetop espresso makers. With the invention of the Bialetti in the 1930s, espresso—long a staple of Italian cafés and bars—became available for home consumption. Today, this classic of twentieth-century industrial design can be found in 90 percent of Italian homes. Now Italy’s favorite pot can go to work in your kitchen, making delicious espresso on gas or electric stovetops.

As the cold water in the lower chamber heats, the pressure from its boiling forces the water up through the coffee grounds. In just a few minutes, espresso enters the upper chamber, filling it with perfectly brewed coffee, as the pot hisses and gurgles. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand until the lower chamber is releasing only steam.

excellent coffee maker
I've owned one of these for at least 10 yrs. I even travel with it because I bought the smallest Bialetti. It is excellent - makes a delicious cup of coffee in no time at all.

Obviously it's going to get hot because it sits over an open flame. Like any other cooking device, one should use some sort of glove to hold the little handle. Not a complaint; rather a reaction to the other reviews

Dyhard fans...love our Bialetti!
We've had our 6 cup maker for over 6 years, use it everyday... It is a bit stained but we like the ""life"" that brings to it. We bought a 12 cup for when we have guests,works perfect. We do change the gaskets every six /eight months or so. Makes perfect smooth espresso every time ! Taken it traveling and camping. We'll heat and froth milk in a French press and have an exceptional latte every time. Can't say enough how great this set up is. So much cheaper than any other option. Takes up no space and the satisfaction level is wonderful every time. We've also baught a few as gift for family and friends. Also true that 90% of Italian families own and use these! Our trip to Italia visiting friends confirmed this! With our Bialetti espresso latte, it's like sipping a bit of lovely Italy each morning

Decent espresso maker
If you like a good cup of espresso this does the trick but be aware:
It's made of aluminum and can easily develop stains in the lower chamber if you leave water standing in it.
If you need to make a second pot, you have to wait for it to cool down to avoid burning yourself.
If you have gas burners, make sure the pot fits on the grates. The 3 cup pot might be too small to fit on a gas burner.

The price is right for this espresso maker. I'm just not sure how it will hold up over long term use

Perfect for one cup of coffee
I received the six-cup Bialetti as a gift, and use it for regular coffee, the six-cup size is perfect for a single mug of coffee. This little espresso maker is quick and simple to use, and I find an intangible purity in the ritual of making coffee in a pot, as opposed to the sterility of a K-cup device. It seems just right

LOVE OUR BIALETTI!!
We have had our Bialetti for over a year and we LOVE it! In fact we have 2. A 6 cup for the two of us and a 12 cup for entertaining. I have to disagree with those that say it is difficult to clean. Get yourself a stiff bottle brush and you are good to go! Yes, it does get hot. But isn't that how we like our coffee? Make sure you have a pot holder close by to handle this beauty. It is lightweight, compact, travels well and definitely worth the investment!

Perfect for me
In my household, I am the only coffee drinker and this little maker is perfect for my needs. I agree with the other reviewer, it does get very hot so be sure to use oven mitts

Pretty Good Product
I owned a pot like this for about 6 years.

Pros: Makes a decent flavor coffee. Easy to use.

Cons: The rubber seal over time wears out and sticks to the pot making it hard to release it.

If used frequently look to replace the seal often.

Stains easily when coffee is left in it overnight and stains are permanent

The pot is not easy to clean

A Must Have for any Coffee Lover
Just back from Italy and totally forgot how much I loved coffee from a Bialetti. Served at dinner on our trip, it was perfect. Great presentation, intense flavor, could not wait to start making coffee at home this way. I just made my first batch this morning and I am not sure what I love more, how easy it is or how delicious the results are. If you have not used one of these, simply add water in the base, add coffee to the accompanying coffee attachment, screw it together and then put it on the stove, a couple minutes later, done. Easy and intense, wonderful coffee. If you have never had coffee from a Bialetti and you enjoy coffee, you will love it. Guaranteed

I love it!!
As I expected I love the 6 cup size!!! I already owned the 2 cup size which worked great!!! I Just wanted to make more at one time... Easy fast !! I would strongly suggest, if you do not already have one, getting a small coffee bean grinder. Coffee is fresh every time no more stale coffee!!
