FULL PRODUCT DETAILS
The Moka Express is an aluminium stovetop coffee maker made in Italy by Bialetti. Bialetti have over 100 years experience delivering the very best in what traditional Italian coffee has to offer. In Italy, 97% of households own a stovetop coffee maker… 93% of which were made by Bialetti.
One of the staples of this classic design is the octagonal base, unlike anything you’ll find in your kitchen appliance cupboard. The base has been designed to spread heat evenly and produce a richer, fuller espresso with every use.
If you normally reach for instant coffee, or you brew with a filter brewer like a cafetiere at home, you can expect a much better standard of coffee from the Moka Express. This stovetop coffee maker uses ground coffee, water and heat to brew espresso-style coffee at home. It will be much thicker in texture, with a fuller mouthfeel than you’d get from other manual brewing methods.
Not only will your Bialetti Moka Express enhance the texture, but you can expect a much more intense flavour. Don’t forget to try Bialetti’s Moka Ground Coffee to experience the true taste of Italian coffee at home. As the official partners of Bialetti in the UK, we offer the full range of sizes in their best selling Moka Express.
Please note that the cup size guide is based on the traditional taza cup style, which is around 2 liquid ounces or 60ml of liquid. When it comes to a full mug of coffee, like the ones we typically reach for when we climb out of bed, we’d recommend a Bialetti Moka Express 3 cup or 4 cup.
Across the world, the Bialetti Moka Express 6 cup is the best-seller as this will give you a sufficient amount of coffee to make 2 full mugs. With that being said, the Moka Express makes short, strong, espresso-style coffee which is perfect to use as a base for most coffee beverages. To make a latte with this coffee maker, simply heat and froth milk. You can do this with a cafetiere and microwave if you don’t own a milk steamer or electric milk frother.
A latte requires silky smooth milk so not too much frothing is required. Pour your espresso shot into your favourite tall mug and top with your milk. Easy. We’ve created Moka Express guide which will show you how easy it is to make espresso on your stovetop. It’s only 3 steps and shouldn’t take more than 7 minutes – brewing time included!
Check out our FAQs for cleaning instructions. Bialetti Moka Express espresso maker can be used on gas or electric hobs. If you have an induction stovetop, we recommend one of Bialetti’s induction-friendly coffee makers. Alternatively, there are induction hob adapted plates made from stainless steel that will connect to your stovetop allowing you to brew fresh espresso with your Moka pot. It doesn’t matter what type of stovetop you have, you’ll find a hob espresso maker for you in Bialetti’s range.
The Moka Express requires nothing but ground coffee and water. We recommend buying whole bean coffee and grinding it at home with an electric or manual grinder. Whole bean coffee stays fresh for much longer as ground coffee begins to oxidise very quickly which can leave a bitter taste. If you’re grinding beans specifically for your Bialetti coffee maker you are aiming for a grind size slightly coarser than espresso but much finer than you would use in a cafetiere. You’re looking for a consistent grind size that resembles table salt.
We offer Bialetti’s own Moka Ground Coffee in 250g bags which is a great way to get started with your stovetop espresso maker. The hazelnut and chocolate flavours are a firm favourite!
One of our favourite things about this coffee maker is its durability. You should never have to throw it away so it will never end up in landfill. At Brew Italia, we offer all the spare parts you might ever need to replace during your Moka Express’s lifetime. This includes the gasket, filter and handle replacement parts. We’d recommend replacing the gasket and filter every 4 – 6 months, depending on usage, to make sure you’re always brewing the best coffee possible. If you can’t find the part you’re looking for, send us an email and we’ll do our best to source it for you.
As the official UK partner of Bialetti, we work directly with them and their manufacturers so will do everything we can to get your Moka Pot up and running again. One of the most important things to consider when you’re using any coffee maker, not just a Moka Express, is the water quality. In the UK we have quite hard water which can cause limescale build-up and damage your stovetop espresso maker. Consider using filtered water, you’ll get a better tasting coffee and won’t face any issues with limescale build-up blocking your filter and damaging your Moka Pot.
If you don’t have the option of using filtered water, make sure you follow the cleaning steps in the FAQs below which involves using vinegar and water as a natural limescale remover. We don’t recommend using any chemicals on your Bialetti Moka Express when cleaning. Not only could this cause permanent damage to your aluminium coffee maker, but it could affect the taste of your coffee. None of us want that!
Bialetti as a whole is an incredibly forward-thinking brand for someone with their roots so deep in traditional culture. The Moka Express is made in Italy out of aluminium, making it one of the most sustainable coffee makers available. They supply spare parts to avoid their coffee makers unnecessarily going into landfill and, none of their products require solvent-based cleaning solutions.

The handle is fine, and fitted as expected
am very pleased with my coffee pods. They work well in my Nespresso machine and taste great
I recently managed to order 2 sets of gasket and Filter spares for my Venue 10. cup coffee maker, but it took me over two months to find them in stock on-line.
Why it took so long I do not know but a company like Brew Italia ought to ensure. constant supplies.
The Dolce & Gabbana design is unique and incredibly beautiful - even better in real life! This 6 cup moka pot has joined its little 3 cup "sister". And Bialetti Moka Express pots are second to none, without a doubt. I am new to Brew Italia, and their customer care has been brilliant - friendly and efficient. Delighted with my purchase. Many thanks.
This is our second Bialetti red espress stovetop coffee maker. The first served us better than we served it, as we often put on too wide a gas ring and the side was scorched. Hopefully we’ll care better for this one!
It is a really beautiful coffee maker and - with the right grind of your beans of choice, makes two superb medium or four coffee cup sized coffees. Easy to make and easy to wash up - be careful it is well dried before you assemble for later use.
Great product supplied fast
Bought the black edition as a gift for a coffee lover. She kept on talking about it for days! It's a whole new world of coffee, experience and taste! Highly recommend!
A great strong coffee for my mokka pot fast delivery

Great piece of coffee making kit. The timer is fab and no over boiling like always happened on the hob
I didn't want to risk buying these anywhere else and it being not the right size. This was perfect for my 1 cup bialetti
Bought for my husband to use on our induction hob. He says it’s makes an excellent coffee in minutes. Very satisfied.
