Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker : Brilliant

Pleased with the coffee produced by this bialetti with waitrose red tin espresso ground coffee. The only nasty taste is a replacement gasket costing about 20p but nearly £5 delivery.

Classic bialetti make, built to last. Great price on amazon as well.

This is our third bialleti in 14 years. A wonderful way to start the day, so long as you make sure it’s really clean so there’s a tight seal and the handle doesn’t get burned by the gas. (if it does it slowly melts.

Top quality indeed, this is our 3 one, not because they don’t last, rather we were extremely satisfied, we bought as gifts to family and friends, really this product can not fail.

We had one on our holiday to italy and as i was just about to buy an expensive electric coffee maker it came aat a perfect time. It arrived quickly and having had a few tests it works brillaintly, makes delicious expresso and also could be used to make about 3 – 4 normal coffee’s. Some users have commented on leaky seals and the one we had on holiday did sizzle out a bit but this one doesn’t leak at all. Also looks cute on our hob when not in usegreat quality and great price.

I had previously bought a slightly cheaper version which was returned the following day. This coffee pot isso much better and well worth the bit extra. Straight away i could feel the difference in quality. I bought the 9 cup which makes 2 standard mugs perfectly. The spout doesn’t drip or dribble when pouring – like the cheaper version, and the whole thing is made of much better materials. My old one lasted 25 yrs and was very similar to this one so i doubt i’ll ever need to buy one again. I love my new coffee pot & definitely recommend it.

A quality product, brews a tasty coffee. Having tried pod coffee, filtered and cafetière brews i can say without a doubt that coffee using beans is the way forward and as cheap too.

The best coffee i’ve tasted outside a coffee shop. We love making our weekend coffee and it’s so easy to use. I’m thinking about getting a bigger one for when we entertain.

Delighted with latest buy , really good coffee maker and the aroma in the morning is perfect.

Can’t fault these coffee makers at all. They look great, no leaks, easy to clean and they make perfect coffee. We have two now, different sizes. One for home( this one) and a six cup one that we use in our motorhome. The cup sizes refer to espresso measures, i find this coffee maker makes 4 good size cups of cappuccino or latté.

Only this manufacturer makes this coffee pot perfect, there are dozens of copies, yet somehow it never tastes the same. It was delivered quickly and the packaging was amazing, well done.

Great piece of kit, very reliable.

Bit pricey but good quality and makes a lovely brew. Bought as a replacement for a nine year old one. Don’t use the bakelite handle to tighten the top portion. It’s quite weak and snaps off.

A straightforward piece of equipment, really not that hard to clean compared to our cafetiere, and makes lovely coffee. We followed the advice to just smear a little olive oil on the rubber seal, hoping to give it a long life. Learning to use this from scratching is a short learning curve. Just took us a burst of hissing to register that, when the noise level rises considerably, the water is gone and it is a stream of steam coming out. We place this on a small gas ring at a low setting and it is still ready quite quickly. This just feels well made and designed. All a result of my accidentally buying coffee beans instead of filter coffee but no going back now as the coffee is so much nicer.

This is how real coffee is made. You can buy cheap versions of this design but this is the real thing. This size is about right for two people with english cups. If you don’t like the coffee this makes then you don’t like coffee.

I ordered the bialetti after visiting a relative who had one. I’ve already got an all-singing all-dancing coffee machine but this is so much easier to use, quicker, and easier to clean to get a top quality coffee. I’m totally converted and would recommend this top any coffee lover – would make a great gift for someone too.

Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker, 9 Cup

Originally bought the 4 cup and soon became addicted to the lovely coffee this device makes. Love the ritual of making stove top coffee. Quality of espresso maker is excellent.

Fill the bottom with filtered water. Pop in the coffee lavazza qualita rossa coffee 500 g (pack of 2)3. Watch it and enjoy the smell. Everybody knows “the correct way” to use these items but the trick is to experiment and find your own correct way. Above all i hope that you enjoy the ritual nature of using this item to make your perfect cup of coffee.

Brought the 9 cup bialetti moka express after my coffee maker (plunger) broke. Best coffee maker i have brought, i have used a plunge coffee maker before, this one is far superior. Very happy with my purchase. The 9 cup makes one large cup of coffee or two small cups.

Brilliant, i already have an identical coffee maker which i purchased several years ago, so i knew it would be just fine. I love it , it is so easy to clean and use. Now i have two which is great when i have several visitors, my mistake though when ordering the latest maker i chose the wrong size, it should have been quite a bit larger. I am happy, and of course, the coffee i use is good tasting. A good looking, smart coffee maker.

I first used one of these many years ago. Without doubt, this simple device makes the best coffee of any domestic coffee system. At that time, there was a scare that the aluminium might migrate into the coffee and this might be a risk factor for dementia. This caused me to buy other coffee percolators, none of which have ever come any where near the standard of this percolator. More recent research by published springer has shown conclusively that aluminium from coffee mocca pots (bialetti was one of the pots tested) migrates in such small quantities as to contribute a maximum of 4% of our normal weekly intake of aluminium/total weekly intake – and that figure is said to be a worst case scenario. I have again bought a 9 cup bialetti, and it really is the best. (a 9 cup makes about 540ml of coffee i. 2 coffee mugs of black coffee.

Perfect for making a superb coffee for guests. Already had the 6 cup maker but wanted a larger size for when all the family come round. Easy to use and delicious coffee.

Easy to use, looks good, makes a great coffee and this size gives 2 good mug fulls (with milk).

We are very happy with our 9 cup bialetti moka espresso maker. It makes coffee that we enjoy and is easy to use. However it does not feel as heavy as our previous stove top coffee maker that finally wore out after about 35 years.

We have had several cheap espresso makers over the last few years. They usually fail to seal well, don’t pour well, don’t screw together very well and the handles usually fall off or break. I was a bit reticent to pay £45 for this over my usual £12 versions. My error, this feels quality as soon as you touch it. It pours properly, makes a beautiful cup of coffee, lid hinge is quality as is the thread mechanism. Im sure it will last for years.

Excellent size to ensure you have espresso (or the ability to make espresso lungo) throughout the morning. Relatively easy to clean compared to some of the smaller models. I’ve used mine for something over 6months and the only **warning** i’d publish to other buyers is that the shiney metal surface can be damaged by some chemicals). Definitely don’t put this in your dishwasher unless you want it to come out as a dulled, blotchy, slightly rainbow coloured mess (. . My girlfriend definitely wasn’t popular for a few days after doing this, as the dishwasher can’t really clean the device properly anyway).

So far this has worked well, however it does only give you 4/5 small cups of coffee or 2 large cups. Otherwise very good purchase and would reccomend.

I bough this for a present i sent via courier to south america as my friend is as much as coffee lover like me. She absolutely loves it and i am talking here on her behalf.

Don’t twist by the handle when screwing the base on or off; otherwise, it may break off. Don’t over boil the coffee either. Don’t place in the dishwasher.Stop cooking once the pot is full.

No need to comment on this classic beauty.

Thought about buying more expensive machines, but settled for this as we only drank one cup of coffee a day. This has made us drink more coffee as it tastes so good. Would thoroughly recommend it.

I bought this to complement my smaller bialetti 6-cup moka pot. The 9 cup size refers to those tiny espresso sized cups and would make 3 good sized mugs if added to half a cup of warm milk, like the italians do for breakfast. The construction is rather beautiful in an art deco kind of way.

This was a christmas present for my parents who were keen to have their own after sampling coffee from ours. Mum says a coffee in the morning gives her the start she needs so this was a good choice.
