FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / The Moka (stovetop espresso) pot has ruined my morning coffee routine

While not for everyone, the strong brew you get from a Moka pot makes pour over coffee taste like brown water (and that's been my preferred method for decades). I like traditional espresso but the Moka pot is so easy to use and low maintenance that maybe the Italians know a little something about coffee (Moka pots are said to be in upwards of 90% of Italian homes).

Just sayin'.

Out of curiosity, including the espresso machine you recently demolished, how many different methods of coffee making are available in the Greene household on any given day?

I have to believe its at least 7-8.

Two. Moka or pour over.

Seems like there have been more, of course it could be many methods you’ve described that are under the “pour over” category. I don’t know anything about coffee.

I have an old Verna espresso, I’m not even sure how old it is. I have few other types of coffee makers, the regular drip type, 2 French press, one a camping version, an old camping percolator, which I still use.

I’ve gotten really lazy about clean up when I’m camping. I sewed up a few drawstring cotton bags that I’ll fill with ground coffee and just boil them in a regular pot.

I’ve cut way back on coffee in the last year or so. I’ve been drinking more tea recently.

I burn through those stovetop thingies at a lightning pace. (Gas stove. I keep melting the plastic handles.) Haven't made a drip coffee in decades. Blown up a few espresso machines, too. Very cool.... but I'm older now and less of a risk-taker. Ergo the move to stovetops.

langford, interesting. Here's a thought, try a lower heat setting and use the edge of the burner. While my stove is a glass top electric, I just use the edge of a burner so the handle is not over hanging the heat. I use a pretty high heat setting (it's not very precise on my stove) but the handle doesn't even get warm.

Using a Moka pot requires attendance to the process the whole time. I believe there are electric ones as well. Another thing lots of reviewers recommend is preheating the water and then pouring it into the pot. I've tried both but prefer the cold water method. Easier to assemble the top and bottom after the grounds are added.

That's asking a lot for first thing in the a.m., Chris.

I don't drink coffee first thing in the morning. Here's a different thought - Keurig or Nespresso. I think they're perfect for people who prefer some convenience and ease for their daily brew. Hard to screw it up.

The K machines are OK.

I pretty much use induction cooking exclusively, so the model you linked won't work for me. It would need to have an "induction disk" on the bottom of the boiler.

Yup, aluminum and induction are not compatible. There are stainless versions of these but they seem wrong vs. the classic.
