Step 1

Begin by grinding about 20-22 grams of your favourite coffee as fine as you would for an espresso.


Step 2

Fill the bottom half of your Moka Pot with hot water that's fresh off the boil.


Step 3

Now fill the Moka Pot's filter basket with ground coffee powder and give a gentle shake to settle the powder evenly.

Securely place it into the bottom compartment.


Step 4

Carefully fix on the pot's top part with the handle on the bottom chamber.

The bottom chamber will be hot so be careful.


Step 5

Place the pot on stove on medium heat.


Step 6

When the water in the bottom chamber starts boiling, the pressure will push a flow of coffee into the top chamber. You'll hear a bubbling sound when this happens.

If the flame's too hot, the coffee will explode upward. If it's too low, it'll burble lethargically.


A Moka Pot coffee can also be used to whip up a flavourful Tiramisu at home.
