A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

Pros
  • Stainless Steel - No aluminum is touching the espresso.
Cons
  • Not Traditional Espresso - Because the espresso made from the Bialetti Musa Stovetop is steam-driven and not extracted under at least 9 BAR of pressure, it's not considered traditional espresso.

A shopper asked: I have a two cup Biatelli coffee maker. How do I remove the gasket and filter plate to clean them ? They seem fixed. Please advise. Aug 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Konstantin T: Yes, if you have never done this before, the gasket and filter may get stuck. When I clean mine, I unscrew the top, open the lid, and start pouring warm water inside. The container fills up, water reaches the top of the center tube, and then begins to trickle through the filter. If that wouldn't loosen it up, I tap the filter lightly, which usually makes the gasket pop at least in one spot. Then it is relatively easy to gently pull the gasket. The filter falls out, once the gasket is removed.
I hope this helps...

patricia t: I just hit the bottom to loosen it and it pops out. I add the mistake of washing mine a few times in the dishwasher so it might be looser. I hand wash ring and did wash the rest. Good luck. Sep 12, 2013

patricia t: I use a capresso burr grinder that I bought through Seattle gear. I use a fine grind and I might try a finer grind. It works well and seems to be holding up very well. I use it every morning. Aug 13, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm confused. In reading the reviews, I see that most of the people that responded said, for example, "We bought the ten-cup pot and it makes enough great coffee for two". Is this an espresso machine? Because I'm Italian and a true Italian knows that a cup of espresso only consists of about 2 ounces, or less sometimes. I just need to be sure that this is an actual espresso maker because the reviews I'm reading have me completely confused. Thank you. Sep 28, 2012

Scott H: This coffee pot makes a very good very strong cup of coffee. It is close to espresso but you won't have the crema or full strength of a traditional expresso. The "10" cup refers to an espresso size cup, you end up with about 10 to 12 ounces of good strong coffee good for one serving if you are me two if you don't mind sharing. Nov 23, 2012

Teri KStaff: Though this Bialetti Musa is stainless steel, I've not tested it on an induction stovetop and so I am not sure if it will work for you, unfortunately. Sorry I can't do further testing on this, but perhaps a customer will have an answer! Mar 3, 2014

Teri KStaff: In the past we had this Bialetti Musa in a 10-cup size, but we currently only offer it in 4 or 6 cup (2 ounces per cup) sizes. Unfortunately I am not sure if a 10-cup size or larger is available. Jun 10, 2013

My review may be coloured by the fact that I'm 3 pots in, but this thing makes life-affirming, kick-ass, magical coffee. Fill the whole coffee part with good medium ground espresso, tamp it down a little and rock and roll. I LOVE this thing.

Love it. It is a low tech way of making a good cup of coffee. Tried sparkling water to see if it was more espresso like but not really. I may have proportions wrong. It is also very pretty.

The shipping on this was pretty slow, but arrived as expected. It's a solid espresso-maker (a little too expensive in my opinion) and you have to pay attention because if you forget about it on the stove-top it WILL burn irreparably.

I wanted a pot that would be uncomplicated and make good espresso for homemade cafe con leche and lattes. No bells or whistles. Which is exactly what this pot is. It is easy to handle and sturdy.

Pros:

Cons:
Just what I wanted Easy, Uncomplicated

I bought the 6-cup which for me works fine. I hate to brew a pot of coffee and then end up only having a cup or two. This lets me use whichever coffee I prefer and a full pot makes a nice 8 oz cup of coffee. My biggest complaint is the lid. Yes, it shows the thumb spot to supposedly open the lid with but I have yet to be able to get it to work I end up having to open the lid manually. Not a killer but perhaps a different style may work better. I wanted the wider base on this one so it would work better on my gas stove.

Pros:
Durable, Easy To Use

Cons:
Long Brew Time

I love stovetop espresso makers - great tasting coffee/moka at an affordable price as compared traditional espresso makers. I have been using these since my days of living in Seattle! This model avoids some of the corrosion problems common with aluminum models. Handle does not melt if you happen to let a flame get too close. It is also sturdy and easy to care for. Highly recommended!

Pros:
Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Durable, Brews Quickly, Stylish

Nice moka pot for the price

Review by

Quality

We use this moka pot (10-cup capacity) every morning to start the day. We had to experiment a little bit to get it just right, but it makes a great cup now. We settled on filling the bottom with hot water to expedite the coffee-brewing (and extend the life of the gasket), use a grind that's slightly coarser than espresso and use medium heat. Perfect cup every time with this method. I was worried about the bottom of the pot when I first saw the actual product, as it is not completely flat. (The "rim" is the only part that touches the stove.) We have a glass-top stove, and it requires pots and pans to have a flat bottom for good cooking results. But with the above mentioned method, it still works pretty well. One thing I would point out is that it is hard to tighten, as it is smooth and round (i.e., no grip). People with small hands might have a hard time. Since we use hot water in the reservoir, we have to be careful to use a pot holder with a grip at the bottom and be mindful not to tighten by the handle as that is how our previous moka pot (moka express) broke! I like the sleek design of this pot and the fact that it is stainless steel, but moka express was easier to use in that sense.

Pros:
Looks Great, Easy To Clean, Great Taste, Large Water Container, Easy To Use

Cons:

Top will not open with your thumb.

We can't open the top by using your thumb. Not a big enough fulcrum. You have to use a spoon to lift the top to see in. Steel has some discoloration from use. We use it everyday, taste and coffee quality is great. We like it but for the above.

Pros:
Quick Brewing, Large Water Container, Great Taste

Cons:
Steel discoloring
