Bialetti’s Mukka Express

19-Mar-2007
 
 
 
 
 
I drink a lot of tea.  But I also drink coffee.  Just not nearly as much.  But it’s time that I gave a little equal time to this other warming (and oh-so-Seattle) beverage. 
 
When I’m at home a perfect mid-morning "snack" is a mocha or cappuccino.  Since I don’t have them that often I chose to go with a lo-tech machine to do the job for me.  Bialetti Mukka Express Cappuccino Maker is the perfect solution!  In theory, this pot makes 2 cups but personally I think one potful is just right for one! 
 
This is a stove-top maker and works purely through the pressure of steam.  The bottom compartment holds water, a basket for your ground coffee fits on top of that, then you screw on the top.  The top section holds milk. 
 
The boiling water and steam are forced up through the coffee and eventually into the top container where it heats and froths the milk.  I actually prefer to heat the milk in the microwave a little before adding it to he pot as I find that cold milk doesn’t get quite as hot as I would like. 
 
To make a mocha I just add a little chocolate to my cup and let it mix in as I pour the coffee into the cup. 
 
Either way it’s a nice treat that’s also a little pick-me-up!
 
Bialetti has several other versions of stove-top pots, too.  Some make larger quantities – perfect for serving a few friends!

    Nagyon meg voltam elégedve a fent látható készülékkel, de a napokban a kazán szelep teljesen ki engedi a nyomást, a készülék teljesen vízkő mentes és tiszta. Szeretnék egy 15 mm-es szelepet vásárolni, de nem sikerült, és ebben szeretném a segítségüket kérni, hol lehet beszerezni, mert nem akarom a készüléket, eldobni , és az a véleményem, hogy a Bialetti cég sem 6 hónapra gyárt egy profi kávéfőzőt , amiről eddig az inretneten csak jó véleményeket írtak.
    Tisztelettel egy eddig elégedett vásárló.
    Várom gyors válaszukat.
