Brewing with the Bialetti Kitty:
Make espresso in an instant. Fill the bottom compartment with freshly boiled water, fill the filter with finely ground coffee and screw the device together carefully with a towel as the base will be hot. You then place the device on the stove. As soon as the water bubbles up and you hear a gurgling sound, you will begin to smell the mouthwatering aroma of coffee brewing. Promptly run the base of the moka pot under cold water to stop the brewing process. Pour your coffee & enjoy!
What you need:
3 Cup Moka pot
12g of finely ground Coffee
200ml of Hot water just off the boil
Step 1: Measure and Grind
Weigh out your coffee. Grind medium-coarse similar to sea salt and pour into filter. Place everything on your scale and tare it to zero.
Step 2: Boil and Add Water
Boil water, and fill the bottom half of your Moka pot with water that’s fresh off the boil.
Step 3: Add Coffee
Fill the pot’s filter basket with the ground coffee, and give it a shake to settle the grounds evenly. Now place it into the bottom compartment.
Step 4: Assemble and put on the hob
Screw on the Moka pot’s spouted top. Be careful the bottom chamber will be hot! Place the pot on a stove set to medium heat.
Step 5: Heat and serve
When the water in the bottom chamber approaches a boil, the pressure will push a stream of coffee slowly and methodically through the upper chamber. If it explodes upward, your water’s too hot, if it burbles lethargically, turn up your flame. You know it’s done when you hear a hissing, bubbling sound.
