- Bialetti Moka Express Size Query
Decided to give one of these a try. I want to use it to make one mug of coffee, reasonably strong but not blow your head off strength. Should I get the 2, 3 or 4 cup size? Or as a friend said buy the 6 cup and put any leftovers in the fridge for later? Also I have read some say to dilute with hot water….Posted 2 months ago
I do like a little bit of milk in my mug….. Any advice?tomdSubscriber
I use a 2 cup one daily. Topped up in a mug with hot water and some milk it makes a nice moderately strong cup of coffee.
IME the 3 or 4 are a bit much for one cup but you can keep some and add hot water later. Only factor is that the footprint of the 2 cup is quite small, and can require some delicate balancing on some gas hobs.Posted 2 months agodc2.0Subscriber
As per CraigW – I have a small (2) and a large (8?) stainless steel bialetti mokka pot. Both used to work fine on a halogen hob. Now we have an induction hob, only the large one works.
Which means I have to make a pot every other day and keep the rest in the fridge. That works well for me as I prefer an Americano, so always top up with water anyway..
Anyone interested in a small steel pot with a brand new seal just fitted (before I discovered it didn’t work on my new induction hob..)?Posted 2 months agokelvinSubscriber
The 2 cup really do one cup… etc… so get a 4 cup minimum, and always get stainless steel. I have a 6 cup stainless that works perfectly on induction (better than on trad electric actually).
Conversely I gave away a 12 cup… I’m not nearly sociable enough to justify owning one.
[just checked the instructions for my stainless “Elegance” pot, and it specifically says that the 2 cup does not work induction hobs]Posted 2 months ago
