i have never heard of mukka...did you mean mokka? Bialetti make nice stove top epsresso makers...They can be quite pricey though. I had a friend go to Italy about 10 years ago...she knew that I thought these where smart looking pots...so she bought me 3 different sized ones...I said holy crap you shouldn't have done that..see in the states they where running between $40- $80 depending on the size...she said they cost her about 15 dollars each over there...so if you can pick them up cheap go for it....we are talking about the S/S stove top espresso makers?
This is their new pot that is a cappuccino maker. The stove top now has a place to add milk that it froths. The only place I have seen them being sold is at Crate n Barrel for about $80. The Bialetti web site has a demo video. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it and if it really works as well as it does in their demo.
I just got a Mukka on eBay and this little thing is amazing! I am the only coffee drinker in the house, so I wanted a maker to brew just a small amount. The Mukka will brew a GREAT cup of cappuccino in just a few minutes, complete with frothed milk. It also makes a latte, but the latte doesn't have as much froth, so I prefer the cappuccino. You can see the demonstration on their website:
I don't use the mukka but I do have their new Brikka, a stovetop espresso maker.(I don't drink cappuccino ) I love it. The only gripe I have is that it only makes 4 cups( that's 1.5oz cups which is really 3 real cups for me). Still I use it every weekend and it makes a very decent home brew espresso. Very easy to use and quick. I believe the Mukka is based on the same mechanism but for cappuccino.
