Positive Product Points

If you travel, and wince at the thought of using that in-room coffee pot, this is a life saver.

Negative Product Points

Sadly...the Elettrika only comes in a 2 cup/tasse model.  Hopefully, they will make a bigger one.

Detailed Commentary

The Bialetti Elettrika is esentially, a 2 cup moka pot with it's own heat source.  The pot fits snugly into the base (which provides the heat), you plug it in, and VOILA....great moka coffee/espresso.  one of the nice features that turned me on is the dual voltage adapter that they include with the pot.  So.....if you're taveling internationally, it's perfect.  It takes about 5 minutes from turn on to brew finish.

Now.....while it's not a portable pump espresso machine......it's the neetest thing for coffee travelers I've seen in a long time.  Not only that......this little pot now comes to work with me.  

As for more of a review......I'm not really sure what to say.........it works just like any other Moka Pot.  Basically.....if you like Moka coffee, and travel......buy this......you won't be dissapointed.

Buying Experience

I gave them my money, they gave me the pot.
