Make your own authentic stovetop espresso at home

The MILANO from GROSCHE is a classic Italian stovetop espresso maker, also called Moka pot. It’s perfect for anyone who loves the taste of a strong shot or double shot of espresso. Compared to filter coffee makers, this brewing method extracts more caffeine and flavours. This gives stovetop espresso a stronger and richer brew than a percolator. The MILANO stovetop espresso maker will make your espresso experience perfect every time.

The safest stovetop espresso maker on the market

The MILANO Moka pot is made from food safe aluminium a non-toxic silicon gasket seal.  You can use it on all gas and electric stovetops, it is however not suitable for induction stovetops. The MILANO is the only coffee percolator that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching hot surfaces. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.

Italian Safety Valve

Each pot is a pressure vessel and should be handled with care. That’s why we only use Italian Safety relief valves in the Milano moka espresso makers.

  1. Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker and fill the lower part with cold fresh water. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve.
  2. Then fill the filter funnel with freshly fine ground espresso coffee. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the MILANO and screw the top part back on. We recommend the Smooth silver espresso as our favorite coffee for the Milano making Italian style moka coffee.
  3. Next, put the MILANO on your stove on a low flame setting. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and into the upper section. The gurgling sound will have stopped indicating the coffee is ready
  4. Finally, remove the MILANO from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino.

What is Italian coffee?

Their love of coffee is something that Italians are known for. In Italy, the most popular way of brewing coffee is in a Italian stovetop espresso maker or Moka pot. While espresso that is purchased in a cafe here is often made in a high pressure machine that runs at around 15 bars of pressure, stovetop espresso makers work with low pressure.

How to care for your Moka pot

They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher. In a dishwasher the aluminium will tarnish and turn black. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.
