My parents have been using this kind of coffee machine for ages. I though I might get one for myself as well.

It makes strong coffee but not an espresso. The pressure is not big enough to create that frothy coffee but better than a filtered alternative(I mean stronger).

Taking it apart is fairly easy if you are a man with strong grips. My wife struggles sometimes but it might be because I tighten it quite a bit.

I haven't experienced leakage yet and use it every day for the past few months.

The pressure valve lets you know if you've compressed your coffee too much as it will start screaming. Not great in the morning when the kids are asleep but at least safe.

Taste is great although it depends a lot on your grind and roast. It's gonna take a while to get a good combination for your taste.

Been on the Nespresso bandwagon for the last 11 years, and ever increasing capsule costs, and a lack of decent high end coffee machines have forced me to consider trying something else just to see whether the premium they charge is justified for the convenience.

I though first step would be worth going back to basics and trying a traditional Italian Espresso machine.

Initial impressions are that it makes a decent cup of coffee, doesn't have such an intense crema as an Espresso system but then I doubt it's pushing 19bar pressure through the system. Flavour is good, and for now I'm still prepping the milk using the jet nozzle on the Nespresso.

Given the cost it makes a much better cup of coffee than a cafetière, the only downside is cleaning it out which is a minor inconvenience.

Couple of tips, if you use filtered water use water that's been sat in your kettle rather than straight out of the fridge, at room temp the water won't take so long to heat up. Second tip, don't pack the coffee in, leave it loose. Final tip, use decent Lavazza coffee in it.

Q) How to make a perfect coffee to start the morning? A) Get a Bialetti Moka Express pot and properly ground coffee! This is how most Italians start their day or finish their lunch at home (and I've spent a lot of time in Italy). And almost every one there I've shared coffee with in their homes use a Bialetti too, simple to prepare and just a few minutes to produce a great tasting coffee (as long as you have quality proper grind coffee to start with).
This is of better construction and functionality than any of the half dozen clones I have previously used and there are readily available spare gasket seals (which do require replacement every 1-2 years with daily use) and filters/funnels (which only require replacing every few years). With care and replacements this pot will last a lifetime.
Do not use the coffee sold in UK supermarkets as "suitable for all coffee makers" even if it states it's espresso (that generally alludes to the roast and not the grind) as the grind is not fine enough (and is more suited to drip coffee) and you will get coffee with the consistency of dishwater! Get a burr grinder (you can get a Hario Skerton plus if you don't mind grinding by hand as it does the job perfectly) and grind your own beans, a very slightly less fine grind than for expresso is required. Only wash with a little dish soap the first time to remove manufacturing residues and only use a j-cloth, nothing abrasive. Before making a coffee the first time make 2 or 3 pots with cheaper coffee and throw away do not drink, then you will be ready to make a proper brew to enjoy.

How to make perfect coffee with a Moka pot:
1) Fill the water to just below the pressure release valve in the water chamber
2) Fill the funnel with freshly ground coffee and just press very lightly to make sure it fills it, but do not tamp it else the coffee will burn and be bitter, and drop onto the water chamber.
3) Screw the top on and put on the gas ring and do not have the flame licking up the sides else it will heat the water too quickly and you will only get a half pot, keep the lid up and keep an eye on the pot.
4) After a couple of minutes the coffee will start to trickle out and will start to fill the pot, once the coffee coming through starts to lose it's rich colour and starts to bubble/froth as it is coming out turn off the heat and flip the lid down.
5) Wait a minute for it to finish, pour and enjoy a perfect coffee every time.

Tip, when washing up don't use anything other than a j-cloth and hot water and do not let it air dry, dry it with a cloth straight away and it will keep it's finish and look shiny new for ever.

I have now used this a few times and have been very pleased with the coffee it produces. So far no leaks as some people have experienced. It is built well enough and feels well balanced and relatively heavy, so no fear of tipping over easily. However, it isnt perfect. The handle feels flimsy and you need to be careful not to put too much force on it. Also, the finish on the inside isn't smooth and is rough to the touch.
In summary, a good enough product which does the job, but could have been great if the manufacturer had put in a little bit more effort.

The first thing I will say is that it's doesn't make 6 cups of coffee. It might make six espresso shots of 30ml but six cups, definitely not. If, like me, you drink your coffee from a mug, and you want to make two mugs of coffee, buy the 9 cup model, which is what I have returned my six cup model for.
As for it as a coffee maker, you can't go wrong. I'm pretty sure Bialetti invented this type of coffee brewer, so you know they know what they're doing. The only way you'll get a better cup of coffee from freshly ground beans is to use a proper steam pressurised espresso machine.

The pot produces great coffee i.e; Americano, Black Coffee. Sometimes you might have to fill up with less water depending on how strong shot you want and how less water is needed. It's quite a big size and definitely not an ideal espresso maker for just 2 odd shots as you can never get the most correct balance of coffee beans to amount of water proportion. But hey, since then I started loving coffees with a tinge of milk. So all in all good tool in the kitchen and makes coffee quicker than on most time under a minute or 2. Will think to buy a smaller size in future if you need only for 2 people and pure espresso shots.
