A scary & hilareous video I saw when looking for Brikka stuff on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaV1DLDmCm4

"Bustelo - or - How to Make it Yourself "

The coffee geek in me is ROFLMAO and also very frightened at the same time.  As someone who uses a quality moka pot (Brikka by Bialetti) used correctly, the above video scares me quite a bit.  I'd never leave a moka pot on high heat unattended for any period of time, especially an apparent crap no name knock off.  
And what's up at the end of the vid with the first guy in line with a small wax coated paper cup waiting for his bustelo to arrive?  Yikes.

The video should come with a "Danger Advisory" report attached.

LOL. Well, the guy uses pre-gound coffee. What do you expect?

That was a cute video. Hey, it's camp. What do you expect? As long as the campers are happy.

Kind of funny how he explained the crema.

(My auto-correct typed "cremation".)

Did you read the comments section from the video?  "Breaking Bad" references were particularly entertaining.

yeah, that was pretty gross and full of misinformation to ay the least...lol

I wonder if that "chef" knows that he could make his lousy sugar concoction with any crappy preground can of stale bean particles?

Yeah, that bit about Hank Schrader was hilarious. Apart from that, most comments simply show that people don't know diddley about good coffee.

Hank has two passions in life:  minerals (not rocks), and coffee.

The way he used the moka pot was dangerous and no one should do that.  But I do have to argue one point with you guys:  you cannot "make his lousy sugar concoction with any crappy preground can of stale bean particles".  Adding the first drops of Bustelo (or Pilon) from a moka pot to the sugar and stirring it up into a paste, then adding the rest of the coffee to that mix, results in a type of coffee that is definitely not espresso and definitely does not have crema, but is something that stands alone.  Cuban coffee.  You cannot replicate this with any old type of beans.  You can use the highest quality beans, freshly roasted with loving care, and it still will not work.  It has to be Bustelo (or, again, Pilon).

Bustelo is stale, preground, bitter coffee that smells horrible out of the can and that should not taste good - but prepare it properly and it becomes something special that cannot be replicated otherwise.  I always keep a can, right next to my freshly roasted Greenway coffee beans (Bustelo for Cuban coffee in a moka, Greenway for the espresso machine).

But yeah, no one should ever use a moka pot the way this guy did.  Scary.

Yup, and living in South FL you see it damn near everywhere and little coffee stands throughout Miami. I've used fresh beans in Moka, but for some reason Bustelo and Pilon go hand in hand with Cuban Coffee.... you can do the same process with fresh ground beans and for some reason it doesn't have that same flavor or kick. And yeh it has to be done right, 1st few drips into some sugar frothed into a paste and then the rest of the Moka....mmmm, that'll wake your ass up for an early flight at MIA lol

and never use a moka pot like this dude did lol
