Long before steam and piston-driven espresso machines, there was the stovetop espresso maker, also known as a moka pot. This classic system of making flavorful coffee can be easily operated on the stove. Simply put water in the bottom chamber, ground coffee in the filter basket located in the middle chamber of the pot, and heat. In a few minutes, the water will be heated and pushed through the coffee grounds, and finally, into the top chamber of the pot. Then, you can pour into your favorite espresso cup and enjoy.
The Bonjour Café Milano Stovetop Espresso Maker lets you enjoy this Old World charm in style, with a polished aluminum exterior and a durable black plastic handle and coffee bean-shaped knob. Available in a 3-cup model, the Café Milano Stovetop Espresso Maker is perfect for daily use on your home stove, and compact enough for traveling. Please note that cup sizes are measured in espresso cups (2oz).
