Detailed Commentary

when I first tried coffee from a moka pot, I did not like it quite much. I was used to drink picolo lattes and machiatos and this coffee was different. But since I moved from Sydney to Slovakia, and it was hard to find some decent coffee place (expecially if you work at Bar Coluzzi...), I decided to get an old moka pot from my grandparents, just gave it a good wash and ruined the whole thing... People, just do not wash this pot with soap or anything else than pure water... been there, done that, no joy...
another thing, you have to train a bit with the moka pot... namely with the level of fire (if used on a gas stove), and also practise with the moment, when you turn the heat off... I cannot give you a guide for that... as for all coffee making techniques, you need to practise and find the thing that suits you. I have a 6 cup and a 3 cup moka pot and I have found out that both of them need a bit different handling. The bigger one needs a bit of more heat, the small one not that much... etc etc...

Buying Experience

casa del cafe in Bratislava, Slovakia have great and experienced staff, the first time I visited them, I spent 2 hours chating with the owner... it is the only place in Slovakia to buy Francis Francis espresso machines, also different coffee blends etc... overall a great place to forget about time and have a chat about some decent coffee.

Three Month Followup

well, after using my Bialetti Moka Express for 3 months now, all I can say, the coffee is getting better every day, but still, not as good, as my 20 years old moka pot.
