Boil the water in your kettle and pour it into the chamber so that it’s just under the safety valve.

Pop the coffee basket into the bottom chamber and screw together the top and bottom chamber. You may need a towel to hold the bottom chamber as it will be hot.

Place the coffee maker on the stove and open the lid to watch the coffee brew.

Use a medium heat. Once you see the coffee starting to flow change the heat as needed to control the coffee flow.

You are aiming for a smooth flow of coffee rather than shooting and spluttering.

Turn of the heat as soon as you hear a bubbling or hissing sound and allow the top coffee chamber to finish filling.

Pour and serve the coffee straight away.


  • If you are grinding your coffee yourself, fill the basket with coffee beans to measure how much coffee to grind.
  • Do not tamp or compact the coffee.
  • Use medium to low heat to brew the coffee. You don’t want the coffee to be shooting or spluttering out as this will burn the coffee.
  • To wash the moka pot rinse with warm soapy water. Do not put in the dishwasher.
