Adrienne Reing "coffee lover": I am pretty strong, but very humbled at the fact that I cannot for the life of me, unscrew the top of this maker without a struggle! The worst part is, sometimes the pot is boiling away without the coffee coming up the spout, so I have to tighten the top just a little more in order for the coffee to percolate up. Then, it is nearly impossible to unscrew it later. I've bought new o-rings already with no difference. My husband even suggested a little vaseline in the threads; no difference.I used to have a smaller espresso maker a long time ago (I don't know the brand...) that was so easy, but because it was small, even on the smallest gas burner, I melted the handle. Instead of buying another replacement handle, I bought a larger pot so it would cover more of the gas flame. Now I'm sad I threw out my little pot!What an awful time when you really are looking forward to that first cup!!
Alejandra Vernon "artist & illustrator": I start my day with this terrific little gismo (prepared the night before)...it makes great coffee if you like the very black stuff, for my taste with lots of sugar and a slurp of cream.I've lost count on how many films I've seen this in...it seems to be a requirement in a lot of French and Italian movie kitchen sets, and also made its appearance in "Moonstruck" and other Hollywood productions that want to give a "European flavor" to the set...so I guess it must be a "chic gadget".It was also in a movie (I believe it was called "Nina Takes a Lover") that I learnt one of the secrets to making good coffee in this...take the back of a spoon, and tamp down the grinds before putting on the top...the other reviewers also have excellent tips, which I won't repeat. It's true, that many people buy this, and can't figure out how to use it. That's why you can pick up some great deals at yard sales...used once...and only $ 1.00 !It's wonderful for single people who love coffee, easy to clean, quick to prepare...I only drink one cup a day, so I make the most of it, with my espresso jet fuel !
Al the Pal "Al the Pal": Over twenty years ago, one of my roomates had one of these and we enjoyed a little cup of espresso every morning to get the day going. I never forgot the great coffee his little pot made, but I hadn't gotten around to getting one of my own until recently. I had about given up on espresso at home after several disappointing "cheap" plug-in machines.The way this works is so simple; you put the water in the bottom with the coffee in a funnel like device with a stem that almost touches the bottom of the pot. Screw the gasketed top on and put it on the fire. As the water heats and starts to boil, the accumulating steam pressure forces the boiling water up the stem, through the coffee and into the top pot through a vented post. When you see steam start to come out of the spout, shut it off and enjoy!The only trouble with this pot is its small size. It will fill one coffee mug full, so if my wife is home we have to split the pot. That's not all bad if you pour your half over a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a touch of Kahlua to fill the mug (after work, of course). I know they make larger pots like this, and as soon as Amazon has one, it's mine!
DLP: Nothing beats this stovetop espresso maker for a good, dark cup of espresso. I grew up in Brazil, land of strong coffee, and this little maker brews such a rich and thick (if you choose) "cafezinho" that I thought I had died and gone back! It's very simple to use, fast to brew and easy to clean, and the price can't be beat. If you love espresso then try this little maker.
Imelda: This is such a wonderful espresso-maker...I've compared stovetop espresso with that made in my relatives' expensive machines, and the Moka pot makes equally delicious coffee. All I need are good beans, ground very well, and an attentive ear. I love to hear the bubbling in the morning! I use stovetop-brewed espresso for iced mocha lattes, and they're superb, and much cheaper than buying one at a coffeebucks place. At under $20 this Moka pot is definitely the best coffee bargain to be had.
