Moka Pot

Equipment Needed

  • Moka pot
  • Freshly roasted coffee beans
  • Kettle
  • Timer

This method involves filling the bottom chamber of a Moka pot with water and adding finely ground coffee to the filter basket.

The pot is then heated on the stove, causing the water to boil and steam to rise through the coffee grounds and into the top chamber.

Moka pot coffee is known for its strong, rich flavor and is a great option for those who enjoy a bold cup of coffee.


  1. Boil water in a kettle and let it sit for a few seconds to reach the ideal temperature of 93-96°C.
  2. Fill the bottom chamber of the Moka pot with hot water up to the valve.
  3. Insert the filter basket and fill it with finely ground coffee, but do not pack it too tightly.
  4. Screw the top chamber onto the bottom chamber, making sure it is tightly sealed.
  5. Place the Moka pot on medium heat on the stove.
  6. As the water boils, steam will rise through the coffee grounds and into the top chamber. You will hear a gurgling sound as the coffee is extracted.
  7. Once the top chamber is full, remove from the heat and run the bottom of the Moka pot under cold water to stop the extraction.
  8. Pour the brewed coffee into your mug and enjoy!


  • Use freshly roasted coffee beans for the best flavour.
  • Experiment with different coffee-to-water ratios and grind sizes to find your preferred taste. The most popular is 1:10 (20g:200g).
  • Do not tamp down the coffee grounds in the filter basket, as this can result in over-extraction.
  • Clean your Moka pot after each use to ensure the best flavour from your coffee.
