Brew on my brothers. Can't believe anyone is still reading this post. Nice!
Saw the stainless steel Bialetti "Venus" at Brandsmart a few days ago.

Dan, any experience using Pilon in the vacuum packs in a moka pot? Is the grind good enough?

I know it can be brewed well but I never had luck with it. A cigarstore guy poured me shot after shot of it down in Ybor CIty one morning and it was quite good.

Broke out the Mukka pot today. Ground up some SM's Monkey Blend, filled the top with some heavy cream. Talk about a rich cappuccino.

It'll work fine. Like any grind you need to fiddle with how of a tamp if any is needed.

I remember this post when it was on club stogie. I purchased a Bialetti moka pot and was blown away with the results. I’d impress my college roommates with a jolt of moka pot brew. I still have my moka pot and use it from time to time. Thanks for all your wit and wisdom, Dan. You are certainly missed.

Here's one you are most unlikely to see outside of Naples, Italy - a Neapolitan coffee pot. Kind of like a Moka but also quite different. Takes a little practice to master.

Default Re: Mokapots, Moka, or Stovetop Espresso, Period.

I have a couple of questions*
After I put the red top on the stove (electric) how long ballpark until its finished...I read 45 seconds but I interpreted that to mean 45 seconds after boiling starts...is this correct?
If there are seals or gaskets on the red top?
how often should I replace them?
Do you use a tamper and how do you get the dome shaped pattern uniform?
Thank you

This thread caused me to bring out my Bialetti. A very good Americano. Just the right taste of bitter with good notes.

Tagging this for later review...as a grad student with evening classes I started drinking coffee, especially with a shot of espresso added (it was an Econ class, I needed all the help I could get!) and now I'd like to start experimenting with a mokapot.
