The other day, a special day, I received a cool gift from my sister. A Moka Express – specifically a Bialetti. In case you are unfamiliar with this classic stovetop espresso maker here is a small picture and wiki link.
illy coffee I had lying around the house (never know when you are going to want to make an expresso!). I did find a few good sites that help walk the newbie through brewing this cup of joe.Despite the lack of instructions my first cafe was excellent with the
- Kevin’s I Need Coffee Article (very good plenty of captions to accompany the photos)
- About.com basic slide show (pour, scoop, tighten, boil, drink)
One word of caution – if you drink the whole pot you will be juiced, and will need occupy yourself for several hours (days).
