Bialetti has spent the last 100 years becoming an Italian cookware brand that people all over the world admire. Since Alfonso Bialetti opened the business in Crusinallo, Italy, in 1919, the brand has become a household name, most notably for their Bialetti Moka Pot coffee and espresso maker. In fact, the Bialetti Moka Pot was so successful that it prompted the company to launch their own line of Italian coffee!
How the Bialetti Moka Pot Works
Alfonso Bialetti himself invented the Moka Express in 1933, making it easy for people everywhere to brew authentic Italian coffee and espresso at home. He named his invention after the city of Mokha in Yemen, a place well-known for its role in the coffee trade. The Moka Pot was such a resounding hit that it catapulted the brand to the top of the coffee maker market. So, how does it work? All you have to do is put water into the bottom chamber of the aluminum machine, place the filter filled with espresso coffee grounds over it, and then twist the top on. After that, just put it on the stovetop on a medium heat and wait for your delectable brew to pour into the top chamber of the machine. The Bialetti Moka Express works thanks to the simple power of steam!
The Taste of Bialetti Coffee
Espresso prepared with a Moka Express is a robust alternative to drip coffee. Some even prefer it over a French press. In a matter of minutes you can have a rich cup of espresso—and at a significantly lower cost than most automatic espresso makers. Enjoy a cup of Moka Pot espresso with a croissant or biscotti in the morning. Or pair it with dark chocolate and fresh fruit in the afternoon.
Other Bialetti Cookware Products
The Bialetti Espresso Maker comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from 1-Cup Moka Pots all the way up to 18-Cup Moka Pots! They even have anAmerikana Coffee Maker for brewing regular coffee that's as delicious as their espresso. But the company also manufactures Italian cookware products other than espresso and coffee machines. Bialetti pans, espresso cups, cutlery, and other useful household items stock kitchens in Italy and abroad.
