Summary: This thing is well made and works exactly as it's designed to. I watched a few videos to ensure I knew how to brew my coffee. It's quite simple. However, remember, no pot will make lousy coffee taste great. Get some good stuff - and don't be confused by dark vs. light roast as I was.
FOR STRONG, HOT, INTENSIVE FLAVORED COFFEE, THIS POT'S FOR YOU!
5 June 2014
Summary: I like my coffee strong and hot. My husband likes stained warmed water! So, we purchased a Kurig for "each his own". I learned quickly that I didn't like coffee from this style pot. So, I purchased this Express Coffee Stovetop Percolator. There's nothing like percolated coffee to get that rich, velvety coffee flavor. This express percolator makes 3 two ounce cups, which is just enough for "my style" coffee in the AM.
Summary: This is the third Bialetti coffee maker I have purchased.....I'm hooked on them! We started with a couple of smaller pots, then graduated to the 12 cup pot....don't forget the cup size is really Demi size when you purchase. Cleanup is so easy and the coffee it makes is outstanding..throw away your paper filters, this is an awesome pot.
Summary: very good but just for one cup no more than that. use only with low flame beacuse the coffe come out relly fast with hi flame. relly good material.wash only with water. dosen't need wash with soap.the first use boil only with water or do several time the coffe but don't drink.
Summary: I did not purchase this Espresso Maker to make espresso coffee. I bought it as a "upside-down" percolator of regular coffee. I first used such a coffee maker in Italy and loved it. Makes excellent coffee -- about two cups of "Americano". Fast, Hot, Good, Easy to clean. I am very pleased.
Summary: Top doesn't find correctly so there is a minor gap by the spout and some kind of spot in the main container that doesn't go away washing. Might be glue. But works well and I enjoy the good coffee it makes.
Summary: The Bialetti Moka Express 3 Cup. Coffee. Maker is an elegant piece of kitchen gear. It's simple to use, easy to clean, and most importantly it really brews great coffee. I definitely recommend this little coffee maker. My only misgiving, is that it could be a little bigger. Frank B.
