Hi from Mokaland.
I tested the filter, here described in my blog : http://caffettiere.blogspot.com/2018/07/filtro-ims-espresso-brewing-da.html and http://caffettiere.blogspot.com/2018/07/filtro-ims-espresso-brewing-da_9.html
Here you have the automatic translation: http://translate.google.it/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fcaffettiere.blogspot.com%2F&sl=it&tl=en&hl=it&ie=UTF-8 click first on part one :D

It's s a good upgrade for moka lovers.

Thank you for all those tests, nice to see some recent improvements over this simple way of brewing coffee.

I've been interested by those ims filters and think I'll try it after reading your blog.

You talk about a « letto bagnato » technique, I haven't read all your posts, is it a way to brew where you wet the whole coffee?

ps: also wondering how the grind must be chosen as it will also change the extraction..

cheers

That's great.

Now we just need IMS filters for Caravel's, La Peppina's, Faemina's, etc.

Let the competition begin! You've got this Lvx!! :D

That technique of yours with cold water preinfusion really does the trick with some coffees. Now with a precise basket !

I've mostly given up on my regular moka pots. The Brikka just works so well, without much fiddling. It's never burnt tasting and the cup is clean yet has wonderful body.

But if I didn't have a Brikka I'd be wetting my puck and sticking filters in there I suppose.

Thanks for testing and sharing.
I haven't read everything yet, but will certainly do, since the Moka Express is my daily coffee shot. :D
And I'm very interested in improving it.
