If you need a quick and easy cup of authentic Italian espresso there is no better way to go than with the original, Bialetti.

Much higher quality than generic Moka

 

Makes a very strong cup of coffee, that has the long lasting kick of espresso. Not as thick as real espresso, but as powerful. Much higher quality than the generic copy-cat models. 4+ Stars

I really like this espresso maker. Frankly it is easier to use and makes better coffee than the "Mr Coffee" electric espresso machine that I had previously.

Hard to find replacement parts

 

Acceptable taste, but scary behavior. Beware not to forgot water, which I did... And if you burn the gaskets, which I did, good luck to find a replacement set for the 4 cups model..

Love It.

 

I personally love this thing. Brews (nearly) perfect cappuccino in 3 or 4 minutes. Just one large coffee mug\'s worth - I don\'t know about 2 cups, I never share mine :-P. It\'s really not that hard to keep it from overflowing either - you just only...
