Killing my fondness for coffee, one pot at a time...

 

A few months ago, my husband Bill and I were in the market for a new coffee maker. We had just moved into our rented house in Germany and we needed to replace some of the small appliances we left behind in the States. Bill is a coffee snob. He loves ...

Makes very good coffee. Looks cool

Also makes a mess. Expensive, labor intensive, inconvenient

Interesting and Difficult

 

I purchased mine from PC Plus for the lowest price I could find at $45. It came quickly and, as advertised, it was brand new not refurbished.

Good cup of Joe for the American taste and a unique (spiffy and different) design

A poor filter design and inability to clean and keep dry the unit's heating base

I purchased mine from PC Plus for the lowest price I could find at $45. It came quickly and, as advertised, it was brand new not refurbished. It makes a strong cup of coffee not as strong as an espresso or pressure relief value Moka makers because it ...

NONE. Too many problems when trying to brew a pot.

Dangerous. Too much steam surrounds in the unit.

Can't recommend this coffee maker. I have had too many bad experiences with it. One of three things happen when I brew a fresh pot of coffee. Note: I always center and secure the pot., then either: 1. It brews a pot of coffee correctly or 2. steam...

Product Specifications

468-42 Moka Brew Coffeemaker - What does the Moka Brew do that drip coffee makers can't do? It uses natural steam pressure to extract the full coffee flavor rather than just heating water and allowing it to drip down through ground coffee. Like an italian stovetop maker, this electric device employs a similar technique but makes it simpler, foolproof. The water heats in the lower chamber. Then begins to produce steam bubbles which rise to the top of the chamber and push the water down. As the water is pressed down, the only way to escape is through the tubes running up the sides of the machine. Under pressure, the water travels up, through the tube and into the filter basket.
