Bialetti Musa Nuova 4-Cup Espresso Maker Stainless Steel : Five Stars

Best expresso coffee percolator.

Although rated as a 4-cup it actually has a capacity of around 200 ml if you fill it to below the safety valve as per the instructions or 230 ml according to the bialetti website. You will always lose a little of that capacity but for us it produces just the right quantity of coffee to fill two 300 ml latte glasses. A lot of the negative reviews appear to be over two years ago and some mention it being made in india. The one we received is definitely made in china and is suitable for all hob types including induction. If you assemble it with care and don’t use the handle as a lever when tightening then i cannot see any reason why it shouldn’t give excellent service. My only tip would be to give the coffee in the upper chamber a stir before pouring.

Very nice if small for 4 cups.

Great (stove top) mokka coffee makereasy to use and cleanpot has nice finish & detailsaluminum may be more “traditional”, but after trying the stainless steel one, i wouldnt do back.

This is an indian-made version of the traditional stove-top bialetti espresso maker, in smooth stainless steel, so it stays a lot cleaner than the old aluminium types. You just rinse it with hot water – no detergent or other cleaning agent should be used. The four-cup size makes enough for a) four little italian style shots of espresso or b) two good strength cups of americano, if you add some hot water or c) two cappuccinos if you add frothed milk or d) one very strong coffee. I have had excellent results with espresso grind coffee and medium grind seemed to work just as well. Even decaffeinated ground coffee gave a tasty result. I judge the progress of the coffee by sound. Using a small to medium flame on my gas hob, the water pushes up through the grounds almost silently; as soon as i hear steam blasting through, it’s time to stop. That leaves a little water in the bottom vessel, and ensures that your coffee does not get spoiled by overheating. The one thing i dislike about this pot is the butterfly shaped knob on the lid. I guess this looked good in the designer’s sketch, but it is a clumsy way to flip up the lid.

Nice – easy to use – no problems.

Great item and makes really good coffee but the top doesn’t fully fit the bottom. This item original but made in italia.

Makes great coffee and goes through the dishwasher without a problem.

  • A good looking, well built coffee pot
  • Looks good and coffee tastes good.

Although made in india, not italy, the design certainly displays italian flair. However i did have a problem with the first one delivered as it did not seal properly. But the replacement, delivered speedily without fuss, is very good.

I previously owned the old style mokka/expresso maker. It was getting tarnished (yes, mistakenly i put it in the dishwasher a few times) so went for this one. Love the smell of coffee on the stove, this looks classy, i like the nice big handle (i have rather large mits) and its easy to clean. I recommend this product and it should last quite a while. As with a lot of these style of coffee pot, if you have really fine coffee, some will get into the lower chamber during heating. Doesn’t bother me to be frank.

I think this was a “second” but it works.

This is a very nice looking pot and well made. On the packaging and stamped on the base, it is stated that it is suitable for induction hobs. It does not work on my hob which is strange because i have another bialetti s/steel espresso maker that works perfectly on the same hob. Would have given it 5 stars otherwise.

Bought this as a birthday present for my husband about two years ago, as an upgrade from his aluminum model. It has been in heavy and constant use since then, with great consistent results.

Coffee tastes great first thing in the morning. I liked it so much i bought one as a present.

Nice replacement of my old faithful. It is stainless steel, feels more solid.

These little coffee makers make gorgeous espresso and are dead easy to use and clean, and look good too. Will buy another larger version of dinner parties.
