The moka pot is a stove-top coffee maker that brews coffee by pushing steam pressurized boiling water through a puck of ground coffee. Sometimes the Moka pot can use electricity to boil the water. The device was named after the Yemenite city of Mocha, it was invented by an Italian engineer named Alfonso Bialetti in 1933.
The Moka pot is a small, two-chambered coffee brewing device that sits in many Italian kitchens. It’s easy to use and produces a full-bodied coffee, with a rich aroma. Many stove-top espresso makers have an hourglass shape, but there are moka pots in a variety of other styles. They are all based on the same operating principle. Water is heated in the lower chamber of the pot. The steam pressure pushes the water up through the ground coffee and the filter, and then eventually gets collected in the upper chamber as brewed coffee.
