ALL ABOUT MAKING MOKA
(WITH A "K")

Moka Moka In Italy, ordering a Caffe Moka is quite different from, say, calling for a Mocha coffee in America. To sound alike is not to taste alike, coffee-style. For making moka, the chocolate syrup is nowhere in sight. Coffee Cold water Fill the base chamber with cold water up to the level of the valve. Insert the filter. Completely fill the filter with ground coffee, but don’t pack it down. Make sure the filter and rubber gasket are in place. Screw the two chambers tightly together. Place the moka pot on the stove. Warning: keep the heat low. Remove pot from heat just when coffee starts to gurgle, before it starts to rise and bubble. You’ll be sure to extract only the best parts of the coffee. Mix the coffee with a spoon before pouring into cups. Rinse the coffee maker with hot water and let dry thoroughly before screwing chambers back together.
