Moka coffee pot - an insult to good coffee?
« on: 04/11/2018, 09:26 AM »
Can't say I agree with Matt Holden on this (see article); 'boil the crap out of it' Moka - one of the worst insults to good coffee ever invented IMHO!

If you ‘boil the crap out of it’ you’re not using it right. Unfortunately it’s true that more often than not this is the way a moka pot is used. I’m sure I could make a moka pot brew that’d be adequate for most coffee fanatics even if it wasn’t the best thing they’d ever had.
I love coffee. It's as simple as that.

Leroy, I'd have to agree that quite an acceptable brew is possible from a Moka pot, just as unbelievably bad brews can be made with an all-singing, all-dancing espresso set up....beans and operator are crucial to anything but one of those poxy pod thing's
