Do you like your espresso to have a little bit of crema? Of course you do. Luckily for you, the Italians do to. For centuries, traditional Italian coffee has been made in a stovetop coffee maker like the Bialetti Brikka. The kitchen must-have uses the heat from the stove to evaporate water in the base, forcing steam through perfectly ground Italian coffee to produce a creamy espresso-like drink.

Let customers speak for us
I have tried so many coffees but nothing beats this. I have now placed 2 orders.
Arrived really quickly. Exactly what was needed to make Italian coffee
Bought a bialetti milk Jug for cheaper than anywhere else and was delivered very quickly, highly recommended, thanks
Fitted perfectly! Really really happy after searching long and hard for this.
A friend gifted me a bag of this vanilla moka ground and I was taken from the first cup. Whether mixed or straight it delights every time. It's now a coffee staple in our house. Go on, you know you want to.
Great machine works well. The only tiny thing is that I ordered a red one and a black one turned up. It works the same so no worries.
Very pleased with my order and quick delivery.
Nice- makes smooth coffee, better than a caffetiere, in our opinion and stylish too!
We needed a new milk frother that would work on our induction cooker hob. It worked the 1st time but the second time it didn’t. However, it has worked since and makes good frothy milk.
Amazing little contraption. Making coffee in the morning has now become an art :)
I love hot coffee and this is the best way to get a good quality cuppa that is hot
Its the nicest grond coffee, the vanilla is an absolute favourite in our house.
We have been testing different coffee pods for the last 3 years and this is the best coffee so far. Really reminds me of a coffee I had while visiting Italy.
Just what my husband needed for his coffee pot. Perfect size and looks great.
Makes perfect coffee every time. I bought the red one, looks super smart on my stove.

TIPS, TRICKS & FAQS
How to Clean Bialetti Brikka
To clean the Bialetti Brikka, ensure the coffee maker is cooled down; this can be sped up by rinsing it under cold water.
Once cooled, simply unscrew the top and tap out the coffee grinds. Blowing on the end of the funnel is a great way to get the grinds out more easily.
Rinse everything thoroughly under water.
Make sure everything is dried if you want to avoid any oxidisation of the aluminium and clean out the burnt coffee.
For prolonged usage, it’s best practice to store the lid and base separate.
Do I need to use any soaps or chemicals to clean my Brikka?
The Bialetti Brikka is a 100% sustainable coffee maker designed to be cleaned using only water. Any soaps or chemicals may damage the paint and longevity of your product.
What is the difference between a Bialetti Brikka and a Moka Express?
There are a few differences between the Bialetti Brikka and the Moka Express, the main being the brewing time for each. In the classic Moka Pot, it takes roughly 10 minutes to brew a cup of espresso whilst Brikka is significantly faster, brewing a cup in just under three minutes. The upgraded Moka Express has a faster speed of brewing, taking roughly four minutes to brew.
The crema is also a more rich coffee foam on your brew when made with the Bialetti Brikka compared with that from the Moka Express.
Another slight difference between the two coffee makers is that the Brikka delivers a slightly stronger coffee, giving more caffeine than that from a Moka Express.
The taste is also affected by the two coffee makers; depending on each one, a different flavour profile will be presented.
What type of coffee do I need for a Bialetti Brikka?
For your Bialetti Brikka, the best coffee to use is the Moka Ground Coffee – Bialetti sell their own; this is slightly coarser than an espresso grind but finer than a filter grind in a cafetiere.
For a better brew, it is recommended to use whole bean and grind fresh using an electric coffee grinder that's calibrated for espresso.
How much coffee does a Brikka 2 cup make?
The Bialetti Brikka 2 cup is designed to brew 70ml (2oz) of coffee, with a boiler capacity of 100ml, using 15g of ground coffee. This is a similar ground coffee/water ratio to that of a real espresso.
How much coffee does a Brikka 4 cup make?
The Bialetti Brikka 4 cup has a 200ml boiler, able to brew closer to 160ml of espresso.
