Type: Pod Coffee Maker Function: Espresso Housing Material: Aluminum
1. Add Water - Fill the lower chamber with cold water just below the valve.
2. Add Coffee - Insert the funnel and fill it with ground espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel. Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using handle for leverage.
3. Add Heat - Select burner size to fit bottom of pot. For gas stovetop, make sure the flame is not larger than bottom of pot. The flame should not come around the sides of the pot. Heat until the water boils and coffee begins to come out of the center post. There will be a gurgling sound during this process.
4. Enjoy - When the top of the pot is full of coffee, remove from stove. Before pouring coffee, stir it in the upper chamber with a small spoon to equalize all the different coffee layers for optimum flavor.
Grind coffee for moka use, slightly more coarse than esspresso.
Heat may be too high if pot produces coffee with a burnt like taste. Try lowering the heat on your next batch. It may take some trial and error.
For best tasting results always use filtered water.
