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 Venus Stovetop is steam-driven and not extracted under at least 9 BAR of pressure, it's not considered traditional espresso.

Diane C asked: Does this Bialetti (the Venus) work on an induction burner? On amazon, that question has been asked, and answered both yes and no...older versions, no...less than one year old, yes. I am looking for a moka pot, 4 cup, to use on my induction burner. Thanks for the help! Feb 19, 2014

A shopper asked: What is the best tamper size for a 6-cup Bialetti Venus? The specs from Bialetti indicate a 2 9/16" funnel opening. But a 65mm tamper sounds a bit large! Feb 2, 2014

Teri KStaff: You actually don't need to tamp a stovetop like the Bialetti Venus. Check out the video below for our brewing tips!

A shopper asked: What type of coffee grind is best to use with this product: drip grind or fine Expresso grind? Nov 27, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: We suggest a grind that is finer than drip grind when brewing with stovetops like this Bialetti Venus. You will want to be almost (but not quite!) as fine as espresso fine. Check out the video below on stovetop brewing for some other tips!

Teri KStaff: No, this Bialetti stovetop is not made in Italy. The Bialetti Moka and Ilsa stovetops are made in Italy, while the Bialetti Venus and Musa are not, unfortunately. The Venus and Musa are made in India and China. Jul 6, 2013

Teri KStaff: The Bialetti Venus is made in China, and the Musa in India, while their original Moka is still made in Italy. The Ilsa is also made in Italy. Depending on the model, most stovetops are about 2oz per cup, meaning the 4 cup of this Venus maker is 8 ounces. Sep 25, 2012

Solid machine. We've gotten 2 excellent small cups from the 6 cupper when we used a grind that approached regular in size (no where near espresso grind), and used hot cups. We then microwaved the milk and frothed it with a hand frother. If possible, get a 10 cupper. That should provide two decent sized cups. Taste was excellent.

This is the best Bialetti stovetop espresso maker if you want something sleek and modern. It serves 6 but when poured it seems slightly less than 6 compare to other Bialette 6 cup stovetop espresso makers. Overall I rate this my best stovetop maker.

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

Cons:

I enjoy a good, very strong americano that is not bitter and emphasizes the coffee taste. With the proper bean, this Stovetop Espresso Maker is capable of providing that taste.

Admittedly, brewing is a little tedious, and non-destructive removal of the gasket for cleaning a challenge. And, if one uses preheated water, tightening the lower heating chamber onto the upper pot can be difficult, as well. Finally, making a second cup for a friend or mate before the first has cooled is impossible.

All things considered, though, when it comes to good espresso without breaking the bank, this product is a good value.

Pros:
Bang for your buck, Durable, Inexpensive

Cons:
Long Brew Time, Hard To Clean, Small Pot
