The mocha coffee maker is an electric stove or coffee maker that prepares coffee by passing boiling water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. It is named after the Yemeni city of Mocha and was invented by Alfonso Bialetti. It quickly became one of the basic elements of Italian culture. Luigi di Ponti invented the Moka Pot coffee maker in 1933, with a beautiful design, omnipresent and dividing among coffee fans.
The machine was quickly put into production by a mustached metal mechanic from Piedmont, Alfonso Bialetti, who transformed di Ponti's so-called Moka Express, a pressure-operated aluminum coffee maker, into one of the most famous and well-known breweries in the world. Mocha pots were first introduced in Italy by Alfonso Bialetti. These nifty coffee machines are also commonly known as mocha pots, stove-top espresso machines, or Italian coffee makers. Then place the coffee maker on the stove on the slow or medium heat of the electric or gas stove (or induction hob).
On the other hand, of course, the Moka Express causes the hot water to pass upwards, through the coffee grounds, and out through a tube, which means that the prepared coffee does not have to go through any additional coffee filters, since the beans remain below the final extraction. This means that French presses are a staple in any artisanal coffee shop you walk into, because the most serious coffee fanatics prefer the richer flavor of a French press over the simple drip. When the water boils, the entire three-part coffee maker is turned upside down to allow water to filter through the coffee grounds. To prepare the infusion, water is placed in the lower chamber of the pot (it is best to start with very hot water, to prevent the coffee beans from being baked before the extraction begins), and ground coffee the size of a drop is placed evenly in the coffee chamber.
When the “gurgling” stops in the coffee maker on the stove and the upper chamber is full of espresso, the coffee is ready.
