Making coffee using a mocha coffeepot
The mocha coffeepot is ever-present in Italian homes.
It consists of a bottom chamber, which is filled with water, a filter, where the coffee is added, and the collecting chamber where the ready coffee ends up after passing through the funnel.
The hot water passes through the filter with the coffee powder, producing the beverage through percolation.
The three secrets for brewing an excellent coffee with this method of preparation are:
1. Fill the bottom chamber with cold water and do not exceed the level of the valve.
2. Do not press the coffee powder in the filter.
3. Remove the mocha coffeepot from the heat before the coffee gurgles, in other words before the coffee is all out.
