the most expensive bialetti is also the worse, go with the 6955 instead.

maurowan, Ebay

  • Summary: What a waste of money, the quality is low, being made out of aluminum. After a week I bought a "bialetti 6955 musa" and that is so much better, beside $20 cheaper. Made of stainless, it uses less coffee but makes the same amount (4 cups). Bialetti rocks, but the "brikka" was a big mistake.

Genius

John Dynan, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using the old Bialetti Moka for decades. They are very serviceable, consistent coffee makers. I bought a Brikka a couple of years ago and after a few initial hiccups, I have been delighted with the results. The only difficulty with the Brikka is that it is more temperamental in use. 1) You cannot use more than 100ml of water. That is absolutely essential. Any more and it will spill all over your stove.

Solved The Exploding

James Hobson Jr., Amazon
28 July 2012
  • Summary: First 10 batches sprayed espresso all over my kitchen. No one has figured out why this happened so I went through every possible scenario to solve this issue. Here's the foolproof method after repeated trial and error: 1. Wash and remove any debris from the Brikka. 2. Only put water up to or slightly below the line in the base. 3. Use reg ground coffee, NOT espresso grind and fill up to half of the coffee holder.

Excellent coffee

David K. Monroe, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: I love good coffee. I had purchased a Krups home espresso machine that I really liked. It made great coffee as long as it was working or the steam wand wasn't broken. Eventually I was having to reload 2 to 3 times to pull my morning shots and this became very frustrating. My dear wife had purchased a Primula stove top espresso pot and on a lark I fired it up one morning and found that the coffee it produced was really quite good.

Closest to a real italian espresso you can get at home

Matias M., Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: After tasting many different home espresso machines and Mokas, this is the closest I have tested to a real italian espresso in terms of taste, concentration and foam. It is small, but perfect for 2 small cups of espresso or cappuccino. Also, because of the small size the water will heat much faster than in big units. To get the best result it is important to find the correct grinding level and put the right amount of coffee in the holder.

To Buy this Product is To Throw Away Your Money

Gustav Nilsson, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: I tried this product several times. It never worked. I filled it with coffee and water, following the instruction leaflet to the letter. I turned on the stove, and nothing happened for a few minutes. Eventually coffee suddenly burst out from the valve, overflowed, and messed up the top of my kitchen range – about half of the water remaining on the bottom part.
