Moka 1 Cup

#1: Post by Moka 1 Cup »

My dual boiler is out for repair so I decided it was time to take my Moka pots out from retirement.
The last three days I have been playing mainly with the single and I think I have been drinking my best Italian "espresso", ever. That is thanks to an excellent coffee, a late discovery following a recommendation by a forum member, and few tricks with some of the hardware that I have acquired since I joined this forum.

Since this evening I had nothing better to do, I thought about passing it on to other Moka aficionados, in case they want to try it.

Coffee: Dragonfly Crema Dolce, 7g
Grinder: Niche Zero
Coffee pot: Bialetti 1 Cup
Tidaka single dose funnel
Tidaka single dose tamper

The Niche is set two notches up from my usual espresso setting:

Pour the coffee into the filter, and shake a little bit to make it even:


Insert the tamper, without pressing.


Check that everything is ok:


Five minutes later .....

This is to show how much water is left inside the bottom tank. Usually people drink this part as well, I don't other than for when I forget that I have the Moka on the stove, but in that case the coffee is just ok:
Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.
