Synopsis: Make great tasting espresso on a stovetop espresso maker. Step-by-Step instructions and manuals on how to use stove top moka express coffee makers.

How to use stove top moka express espresso makers:

1. Remove the top part of the espresso maker.

2. Remove the filter funnel insert

3. Fill the lower part of the stove top espresso maker with cold fresh water.

Do not fill past the safety valve!

4. Fill the filter funnel with coarse ground (not espresso fine or you might get a leak) espresso coffee. You can also use a medium blend to make a milder tasting coffee for breakfast.  Experiment with the degree of your grind for different taste characteristics.

5. Put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the espresso maker.

6. Screw the top part back onto the lower part firmly (don't force).

7. Place espresso maker onto stove top (boil setting). If you are using a gas range, make sure you don't burn the moka express handle which migh be made of plastic or rubber.

8. Remove espresso maker from stove immediately once the top part of the espresso maker is filled with coffee (careful, the espresso maker is hot!)

9. Enjoy the freshly brewed espresso. Thoroughly dry the unit immediately and do not air-dry.

Perfect! It's been so long since I used mine I didn't even know I'd lost the instructions! Thanks, this is very clear, and the pictures really help.

I bought a Lacafetiere stove top several months ago and am just getting around to using it (tomorrow I'll use it for the very first time). I know how to use it, but I have one problem. The filter funnel that attaches to the lower part will not come out. It appears to either be stuck in there or intentionally made that way. I don't get it. What's wrong, or what I'm doing wrong?
Administrator Note:
It may just be stuck to the lower part. It should come loose after trying to wiggle it a bit.

Thanks! Was wondering how long I should expect to wait before the water boils enough to have the coffee fill the top? Lifting the lid to look to see if coffee rose up was very hot! Thanks!

I agree with everyone...great instructions and photos. How can you tell if your moka is aluminium vs. stainless?
