As you witnessed in my post last week Rosanna from Italy showered me with many, many gifts. One of the wonderful gifts was an espresso maker. It is a Bialetti Moka Express.
Here is how you make espresso with this wonderful coffee maker.
Take the pot apart just so.
Add water to the bottom compartment to the line. Do not overfill.
Place the little cup over the water compartment. Fill with especially ground espresso (not too fine). I may have put too much in because it is very strong. Maybe you like it that way?
Fit all of the parts together again and put directly on stovetop over medium to high heat. After just a few minutes, the pot will make a swooshing sound and you know that the coffee is ready. Magically, the coffee appears at the top of the pot.
It's ready for you to pour and enjoy.
I made the most wonderful cappuccino a few days ago. I made the espresso as outlined above and I used my Cocomotion to perfectly heat and froth the milk. Perfetto!
