I usually drink tea first thing in the morning, but since we got a coffee grinder, I’ve been making coffee. I LOVE hearing that metallic whirrrrrr pulverizing the beans first thing in the morning. It gets me excited to start the day.
We have two coffee pots at home, a 1-cup and a 6 cup. Both the classic Bialetti, otherwise known as the Moka Express. Moka is the word for stovetop coffee pots that makes coffee by pressurizing boiling water through ground coffee filters. Bialetti made the first moka in 1933, the classic that is in millions of Italian households. For years, mimicking American coffee my mom made coffee for herself with a 4-cup moka and drank it out of a mug until the doctor told her to cut it out.
I’m looking for a 3-cup one now that I’m drinking coffee, too, in the morning. There are so many designs out there! I’m taking my time shopping for a new one and I’ve put together a little list for you all that may be looking for one, too. Even if you have one, you can always use another one if you have guests.
I’m leaning towards the Bialetti Venus (No. 2) Which ones do you like?
