Moka Pot

Here’s our step-by-step guide


• Moka Pot
• Gas/electric stove top
• Grinderℹ︎
• Scales
• Mug(s)


• 40g of coffee beans

• 300g (mL) of heated water♨︎

• Just a dash of milk (Optional)

✎: We recommend using a kettle because it offers higher pouring precision. However, if you don’t have one, you can always use a standard one or literally any pouring source. Your coffee, your rules.

ℹ︎: If you don’t have a grinder, that’s OK! You can always use pre-ground coffee, though we recommend freshly ground because it does elevate the flavour of each brew.

♨︎: In our recipes, we measure water in grams because we use scales, and it’s easy to achieve precision this way. However, if you don’t have scales, the conversion is easy: 1g=1mL.

Step 1 : Put in the coffee

Take out the basket and fill it with coffee grinds.

Gently push down the grinds to a smooth surface using back of the spoon to ensure an even extraction.

Step 2 : Add water

Grind 30g of coffee and place inside the brewer.

Add water to just below the pressure valve inside. Use heated water to achieve faster brew time and less bitterness.

Step 3 : Attach the filter basket

Clean the rim of filter and put it on top of heating vessel

Screw the coffee collector on top, make sure the seal is nice and snug.

Step 4 : Brewing

Keep the whole step up on a stove.

Set the flame on medium heat so that pressure rise steadily and gradually. This will help even extraction of coffee.

Step 5 : Percolation

Slowly the water will percolation through coffee bed will start and coffee will slowly start to come from top.

Brewing is done when the water starts to spurt out from the top. Turn off the stove and take off moka pot from it before steam starts to come out.

Step 6 : Pouring out the coffee

You can pour out the coffee directly in your cups. You can optionally add milk if you'd like to make it a flat white.

You can also used steamed milk if available.
