Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker – Nice coffee maker

Great coffee maker, my mornings are now a lot brighter. Much better than a cafetière, good brand, easy to use.

This was a xmas gift, i am a huge coffee lover and recently threw out my coffee machine because it was just too much work, but this is perfect, it makes fabulous coffee in a quarter of the time and effort. Looks good and is a nice solid item.

Was slightly damaged and marked, but was for own use and not a present, so wasn’t worth returning.

This is a present, hopefully it will be loved by the recipient, really can’t say any more than that .

First impressions are the product looks to be of good quality, bought as a christmas present for parents, so not bee tried yet, but looks great.

Does the job well and but on the first unit i received it was almost impossible to keep a tight seal between the two halves when under full pressure. The replacement is better but on occasion still spits water out of the joint. This is nothing to do with coffee being trapped under the sealing ring but more a case of poor machining of the mating surfaces.

This product is good design and user enjoying. . However small damage to product. Little dents, unfortunately as xmas present i didn’t have time to replace. Would have given 5star without small seas if damage.

Ideal for minimalist and coffee lovers. So far, quality seems to be ok. It has some spots on the bottom of the pot (from inside), but i am using gas to cook, but that’s normal spotting with time.

Looks great easy to use & makes amazing coffee.

Having owned a few moka pots over the years i can say this is by far the best quality one. The black finish makes this model very stylish.

Really good price, highly recommend.

Had to send the first one back as scratched but easy to do and replacement sent very quickly.

I love my bialetti coffee maker. Too big for 1 person but i save the rest up for an afternoon espresso. Of course it works a treat, of course it looks great, of course it makes fab coffee, it is the real thing.

Bought it long time ago and still using it.

I should have got one of these years ago. Having a fondness for glass french press style coffee i was reluctant to try one of these and some of the reviews were putting me off. But another cafetiere died a horrible death so i decided to replace it with the bialetti moka pot. From some of the bad reviews i was expecting it to take a while to perfect a decent cup of coffee but it tasted excellent from the second pot i brewed,you discard the first one,i presume its to clean the pot from impurities left over from the manufacturing process. The coffee from this pot is a lot nicer than from a cafetiere and would be very close to very good coffee shop standard. Pro’s:coffee comes out piping hot,much more so than french press. Lot cheaper than expensive machine and nearly as good. Cons:even 6 cup version will just about fill one mug,so get 9 or 12 cup if you like lots or its for two people. Seems to use a little more coffee than other methodsif you are thinking of getting one ,just do,you won’t regret it. I have read some neg comments ,one even saying the positive ones are planted by the manufacturer??all i can say to this is they are probably doing something wrong. Maybe they have it on too high or on a burner that doesn’t suit the pot so this is just a little guide to the way i do it,but then again everbodys tastes are different. Fill bottom part of pot to waterline engraved inside pot. Fill coffee compartment, damp down very lightly. Do not compact or it might block filter. Screw pot together ,don’t over tighten,place on a small burner on low/medium making sure flames don’t go up sides of pot. In less than 5 minutes the top compartment will be full of lovely bubbly coffee. Rinse pot and coffee compartment when cool with tap water,no detergents needed.
