To start, heat your water. If you don’t have a temperature control kettle, bring your kettle to the boil and wait for one minute until it has cooled to 95°C.
Fill the bottom section of the pot with hot water as far as the safety valve.
Next, we move on to the coffee. For moka pot, use a medium-fine grind. The grind needs to be coarser than an espresso grind to ensure the best extraction. If using the Krups GVX2 Grinder, set at 5 – 7. For the best results, we advise grinding coffee just before you brew it. The fresher the grind, the better the taste.
Fill the basket with your ground coffee, making sure the grounds are level in the basket.
Screw the bottom and top parts together and place on a low to medium heat.
When the water begins to come through to the top, turn down the heat to avoid scalding the coffee.
When cleaning, leave all parts to dry separately to preserve the lifespan of the rubber gasket.
