View Full Version : Beans For Stove Top Brewing

02-18-2011, 11:57 AM
I am just getting started. My budget is limited. I bought a Rocky grinder, a small Bialetti Moka Express, and a Bialetti Brikka. Which brands of coffee are best suited to stove top brewing? I searched first but did find an answer.

You'll probably get 5 different answers if 5 people reply, much like if you asked what's the best cigar to go with stovetop coffee.

Personally, I like darker roast espresso blends and seem to like the Brazil and Costa Rica beans the best.

I am a big fan of Brazil beans for the moka pot as well as ethiopians and yemens. The Brikka I find does very well with lighter roasts and have had some costa rican through it that where absolutely fabulous. Of course the quality and freshness of the beans being brewed make a huge difference.
