How to Use a Stovetop Espresso Maker

Stovetop coffee makers, which are sometimes called percolators or moka pots, include a very simple setup made from metal parts. Water is poured into the bottom pot, and a basket in the middle holds the coffee grounds. The unit is placed on the stove and as the water warms up, it’s pushed through the grounds and filter into the upper pot, where the espresso collects. Because the coffee maker is fairly small, the water boils quickly and the process takes just a few minutes to complete. Once you hear a gurgling noise, you can pour the espresso out and into your cup.

Bialetti Stovetop Espresso

Stovetop espresso makers are made by a number of well-known coffee brands, but one of the most popular brands for these espresso pots is Bialetti. Invented in the 1930s, the Bialetti espresso maker was the first to make it possible to make espresso at home. These gadgets are found in the majority of Italian homes today and have become increasingly popular around the world. If you’re interested in enjoying a handcrafted cup of espresso made in your very own kitchen, try one of these Bialetti stovetop coffee makers from Sur La Table.
