Description

Another innovation from Bialetti. Brewing only begins when the right amount of pressure is achieved, allowing the creation of a truly rich and creamy espresso coffee with crema on the top.

A transparent lid allows you to see the coffee as it brews and a measuring cup is included to ensure you always use the right amount of water.

The 4 cup Brikka makes 4 cups, approximately 1.5oz each.

METHOD:

Add Water

Fill the upper chamber with cold water to the 'H2O' marker. Then using the upper chamber pour the water into the lower chamber. 

Add Coffee

Insert the funnel and fill it with ground espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel. Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using the handle for leverage. 

Add Heat

Place pot on stovetop. For gas stoves the flame should not come around the sides of the pot. Heat until the water boils and coffee begins to come out of the center post. There will be a gurgling sound during this process. 

Enjoy!

After 2-3 minutes, a small amount of coffee will trickle out and then you will hear a puffing noise. The froth will form in 3-4 seconds after this. When the top of the pot is full, remove from stove, stir the coffee in the upper chamber for optimum flavor, and enjoy. 

Tips/Precautions

  • Use coffee ground specifically for a moka coffee maker. Don't use too fine ground coffee.
  • Periodically check the funnel, the filter plate and the washer for wear. Over time, they may need to be replaced.
  • If the heat is too high, coffee may have a burnt taste. Getting the optimum temperature for brewing may take some trial and error.

Cleaning

  • Wash by hand with warm water.
  • Dry thoroughly with towel.
  • Do not reassemble the product until all parts are completely dry to avoid oxidation.
  • Do not use soap or detergent.
  • Do not use in dishwasher.
  • Do not use steel wool or other abrasive products.
