How the IMUSA Moka Pot works

When the brewing process is complete, you’ll have a perfect cup of espresso that’s ready to enjoy at any time.
Whether you’re an experienced coffee aficionado or just starting out, the IMUSA Moka Pot is sure to become a staple in your coffee-making routine.
Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or just starting out, the IMUSA Moka Pot is the perfect tool for brewing coffee at home. With its simple design and intuitive operation, the Moka Pot makes it easy to craft rich, flavorful espresso with just a few simple steps. Here are some tips for using your Moka Pot to brew coffee like a pro:
- Start by choosing coffee beans that are right for your taste preferences and brewing method. If you are not sure start with a medium or dark roast. If you usually use an espresso machine, opt for finely ground coffee beans with a medium roast.
- Moka pots are designed for a 1 to 10 ratio which means 1 gram of beans to 10 grams of water. This 3-cup pot is designed for 140 grams of water so the basket will easily hold 14 grams of grinds. You can go a bit over if you like a stronger cup.
- Next, set up your coffee maker by adding the coffee with a medium-fine grind or a fine medium to the coffee basket. 14 grams plus or minus depending on your taste.
- Add boiling water to the pot to warm it up. Use a cloth to pour it out.
- Put a cloth over the scale and the pot on top. Fill the pot with 140 grams of hot water (for the 3-cup pot) or just fill the pot so the water just touches the gasket on the safety release valve (on any Moka Pot).
- Add the basket of grinds and use the cloth to screw on the top part of the pot and transfer the pot to a hot stove. Remember the pot is going to be hot! I use just under medium heat.
- Keep the lid open so you can watch the black gold come out. Turn it down a bit, you don’t want the pot too hot. You will hear a gurgling sound.
- When it is done the pot will hiss at you and that means it’s time to dunk the pot in some cool water and pour it into a vase or cup. The faster the better.
- OK you’ve just made a great cup of strong coffee and know it’s time to enjoy.
