    I LOVE my Moka.

    It's not espresso per se, not like a pro machine, but I love the coffee it makes. Be careful and take it off as you hear the bubbling speed up. Better to have a little bit of water in the bottom rather than cook your brew.

    Steam up a little half and half and yum.

    Moka Pot coffee

    Hi MrBox,

    Moka's generate great tasting coffee. As BeefyBean says, not quite the same taste as an Espresso machine. But coffee is all about personal taste, not what machine you use. If you love the taste, then go for it. And Moka Pots are not super expensive (compared to the machines).

    This link covers off the Moka brewing technique with a couple of handy tips thrown in for good measure.

    If you want a trendy looking Moka, then check out this review:

    Remember, coffee is a very personal experience, if you enjoy Moka Pot coffee, then what's stopping you?!?!

    the easy way to control this is just put it on medium heat this way it will not get away from you.

    2 doubles is 6 oz. Even the smallest Moka should do that.
