The Bialetti Moka Express is a stovetop espresso maker that is perfect for brewing rich and flavorful espresso in the comfort of your home or out in the wild. To make a delicious espresso, all you need is coffee, water, and a stove. The Moka Express was created in 1933 by Alfonso Bialetti and has always been regarded as an iconic symbol of Italian style.
In collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, the Moka Express has been transformed into an exclusive edition that pays homage to the artistry, landscapes, and beautiful colours of Sicily. The new design features the decorative motifs of the Sicilian Cart, a traditional element of the island's folklore, which is at the heart of Dolce & Gabbana's aesthetic. The Moka Express Bialetti Dolce & Gabbana edition is a celebration of style and the perfect way to enjoy a doubly Italian pleasure.

How To Use
1.First, you will need to fill the base with hot water, fill to just below the pressure valve inside
2.Weigh out and grind your beans. We recommend using a 10-1 ratio of water in the base to coffee. Optionally, for simplicity and ease of use, you can fill up the filter basket and use that as a measurement for your beans.
3. When placing the grounds into the basket, do not tamp or flatten them, but rather tap the basket to even out and settle the grounds.
4. Place the filter basket into the base and connect the top brew chamber to the base.
5. Place the Moka on medium to low heat. It should take between 3-5 minutes to brew.
6. As it brews, keep a good eye on it. As it gets hotter, the Moka will reach a phase where instead of steadily pouring, the coffee will start to sputter out more aggressively. This will make your coffee bitter, so make sure to pull it off the heat as you see this begin to happen.
7. Pour into your cup and enjoy!
1. When grinding, the lighter your roast, the finer you will need to grind to coffee to get a good extraction.
2. You can add an Aeropress paper filter on top of the ground coffee before connecting the base and brewing chamber. This will provide a better extraction as well as a cleaner cup with fewer ground particles in it.
3. You can experiment with different water levels. If you use a darker roast, you might only fill the boiler 3/4 full, whereas, with a lighter roast, you want as much water as you can to properly extract the flavours from the coffee. This technique aims to get as much water as possible through the coffee before it starts to sputter.
How to Clean
Once your coffee is made, keeping the Moka clean is as simple as washing it with soap & water and drying it thoroughly. For more details, see the downloadable PDF below.
