A friend of mine got a moka pot and shared his disappointment with me that his coffee tastes cooked, burnt and mediocre. I got the same pot here in Addis Ababa and tried to tweak one thing by boiling the water first then adding the fresh ground coffee to the pot later and the coffee ‘(espresso)’ made by a moka pot tasted delicious especially as a milk drink – A home made latte.
I will call the brew ‘espresso’ because there is some amount of pressure generated in the water tank that pushes the water through the filter funnel to brew the coffee.
I hope this will reach one or two coffee drinkers and enable the beginners to enjoy a good cup out out this ancient coffee brewer.
Pour over coffee home-style brew
Is it time to go back to my roots?
