Moka Pot stovetop brewers produce a dense concentrated cup that's something between espresso and Turkish coffee. Coffee is placed into a filter between the lower chamber (that you fill with water) and the upper chamber that will contain the finished beverage after brewing. Since the water is forced through the cake of coffee by pressure, the process bears more resemblance to espresso extraction than infusion (gravity-based) brewing.
It's an edgy way to make coffee; it always seemed a little dangerous to me!
Thankfully, new Mokapots have pressure relief valves on the lower chamber to prevent espresso pyrotechnics all over your kitchen! I had a bias against this method too: I avoided it for years because I could only find aluminum moka pots. But here we have found all-stainless steel brewers that are very, very nice. And I found some tricks in the brewing method that improve the cup quality too. You can find those on our MokaPot Brewing Tip Sheet!
The Musa Stainless Steel Moka Pot is produced by Bialetti (and made in India), an Italian company known for their award-winning designs and high quality polished stainless steel products. It is my favorite functional Moka Pot because of the thick metal gauge used in the sidewalls and the heat-diffusing base. This thing is solid. Learn MorePrice From: $45.00
Finally we have replacement gaskets to offer! They are sold three gaskets and one filterplate to a pack - though if you clean the mokapot (which you must do to remove funky build-up) then you ought not need a new filterplate. But what the heck - that is how Bialetti is selling them nowadays.
These spare gaskets fit for the Bialetti Stainless Steel Moka Pots (Bialetti aluminum moka pots are sized differently) and might fit other brands too.
