Hi

I really like the moka pot coffee and the one i have could definitely need a new rubber seal among other things so i have decided to purchase a new one.
From experience i prefer the steel moka pot as the aluminium gives off a more rancid taste too me (and therefore faster needs replacement).

I am looking at the Bialette Venus, but i am very open to other suggestions (i thought about the Brikka as well, but they unfortunately only come in a aluminium version).

Thanks guys!

/Edit, also for a coffee of regular coffee how many grams of coffee are you using. I am using around 20g myself. - i know this is very individual, but i love testing so if anyone has found their magical amount please let me know.

Get a Bialetti brand.  I suggest you do not get one of the Chinese knockoffs.  They are inferior to the bialetti.  The walls are thin and I would not trust the pressure relief valves in them.

+1 for the Bialetti. They invented moka pots.
