Have never really been a fan of my moka pot - but this has produced better results and has encouraged me to experiment a bit more with it - thanks


It is worth the effort I think. Try brewing with a low heat and remove before the brew starts showing signs of boiling. This removes the chance of it being bitter.

Thanks George - will give it a go. It's great rediscovering something as simple as a moka pot again!

Sounds like an interesting blend.... May I ask what the proportions are?
