I've been getting into the good ol' coffee lately and bought myself one of these things: Moka Pot My Italian uncle told me to get one of these and the coffee it makes is sooo much better than the instant stuff I used to drink. It works like this - Water is poured in the boiler (marked A in the diagram) and the funnel-shaped metal filter (B) is inserted. Finely ground coffee is added to the filter. By placing the pot on a heat source, the water is brought close to boiling point creating steam in the boiler. A gasket ensures a tightly closed unit and allows for pressure to safely build up in the lower section, where a safety valve provides a necessary release in case this pressure would get too high (with clean filters, that should not happen). The steam eventually reaches a high enough pressure to gradually force the surrounding boiling water up the funnel through the coffee powder and into the upper chamber Â, where the coffee is collected. When the lower chamber is almost empty, steam bubbles mix with the upstreaming water, producing a characteristic gurgling noise. (wikipedia) Do any of you guys like your coffee? I used to be happy with the instant stuff but after trying one out of a moka pot I could never go back to that. The coffee it brews is soo much stronger as well What types of coffee are your favorites? Need some suggestions to try out.
