Positive Product Points

Fantastic hot coffee out of a pot that does not spill all over the place.   Brings back memories of Italy where I fell in love with strong coffee.

Negative Product Points

Expensive for a drip brewer.

Detailed Commentary

Ahhhh.  Finally.  Good, no, great, coffee at home.

I have gone through several coffee makers recently.  I just could not find a machine that made good coffee.  

I read great things about Bunn, cringed at the price, but bought one anyway because good coffee is more important than mere money.   Yuck.  What a disappointment.   Swill.   It was impossible to brew good strong coffee with the darn thing.   It went back to the store the same day.

I decided to heck with it.  I can’t afford an espresso machine, I’ll just stick with the 9.99 special and deal with weak coffee and coffee pots that spill everywhere when being poured.

Then I came across a couple reviews for the Moka Brew.  When the only complaint I read was that it made coffee that was too strong, I decided that it was worth a try.

The first cup I had from the Moka Brew was nothing special.  Good, but not great.  The second cup opened my eyes…  It was unbelievable.  Rich, full tasting, smooth – it took me back to Italy where I fell in love with espresso.   Turns out the finished pot needs to be stirred as the coffee floating on top can be weak when compared to the thick rich wonderful goo at the bottom.

If you like café americano, you will love this machine.  Stronger than drip coffee, not as strong as espresso.

Another benefit of the Moka Brew is that I have found myself using far less ground coffee per cup.  It seems to do a much better job of extracting flavor than normal drip machines.

I can’t praise this machine enough for the wonderful coffee it brews…

Buying Experience

Williams Sonoma is a great store.  I would have saved money and bought it online, but all the online venders seemed to be out of stock.
