A Note About Coffee and 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.

  • Stainless Steel - No aluminum is touching the espresso.
  • 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.

Is the bottom compartment coated with Teflon?
Morgan S on May 6, 2016
Best Answer: Not at all, it is simple stainless steel (careful when you have hot water (still) in, this stuff heats up quite fast, so best to wait a little while before unscrewing/taking apart/cleaning)
makes sense for it to not be coated because effectively, you are actually boiling water in the bottom compartment.

Is the Bialetti Venus made in Italy?
Dose 4 cup product serve 4?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2012
Best Answer: 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.

Will the stainless steel Bialetti or Ilsa stove top work with a radiant heat stove top (Aga) on the boiling plate or will it not conduct enough heat? Also, do you know of any modified Moka pots that do build up a greater pressure to produce a better creme?

Best Answer: If your stove boils water in other stainless steel vessels, then either of these will work. As I am not familiar with radiant stove tops. If the (Aga) plate is physically hot and this is not an induction stove I think it will work. Not enough pressure in any stove top to my limited knowledge.

Why is it an advantage that no aluminum is touching the espresso? Is to do with flavor?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2013
Best Answer: We have both the Venus and the 12 cup bialetti traditional stovetop espresso and we enjoy them both with no difference in taste or quality.

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!
Diane C on Feb 19, 2014
Best Answer: anything you want to heat up on induction stoves needs to be magnetic, thus I think it best to try with a magnet to see if the bottom compartment of your particular model is indeed magnetic. I bought a venus two or three months ago and mine is magnetic, I don't know about previous models though.

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!
A shopper on Feb 2, 2014
Best Answer: You actually don't need to tamp a stovetop like the Bialetti Venus. Check out the video below for our brewing tips!

What type of coffee grind is best to use with this product: drip grind or fine Expresso grind?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2013
Best Answer: 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!

On the box, does this say made in Italy?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

good for the priceReview by clb
Product is ok for the price..not as sturdy as i had hoped..metal seems light but makes a decent cup. (Posted on 11/9/2013)
VeryGood, But ... SmallReview by Charlie
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. (Posted on 4/19/2013)
Sleek & Modern Stovetop Espresso MakerReview by Winnie
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.

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

(Posted on 7/7/2011)
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.

Bang for your buck, Durable, Inexpensive
