Summary: There's a reason that its the most popular coffee maker in the world. It makes great coffee, it's durable and couldn't be any simpler to use. You buy the beans you love, grind them as course or fine as you like, put them in the funnel and turn on the stove. A perfect cup every time.
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.
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.
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: I've used on one of the all-in-one espresso makers for years (espresso & frother). The espresso was "fine" and the frother was unreliable. So I started on the search for a new machine that doesn't cost in the 1000's. After reading the reviews I decided to give this guy a try...
