The Milano Stone from GROSCHE is a classic Italian stovetop espresso maker, also called a Moka pot. It’s perfect for anyone who enjoys strong coffee or a shot of espresso. Unlike other filter coffee makers, this brewing method extracts more caffeine and flavours through light pressure in the funnel filter. This gives stovetop espresso a stronger and richer cup than a standard percolator.
This moka pot is made from food safe aluminum and a non-toxic silicon gasket seal. You can use it on all gas and electric stovetops, it is however not suitable for induction stovetops. The Milano Stone is the only stovetop coffee maker that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching hot surfaces. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.
How to make stovetop espresso coffee:
Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker. Fill the lower chamber with cold fresh water up until the safety valve. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve.
Then fill the filter funnel with freshly ground espresso coffee. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower chamber of the Milano and screw the top part back on tightly.
Next, put the Milano on your stove on a low/medium flame setting. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and into the upper section. When the gurgling sound stops, this indicates that the coffee is ready.
Finally, remove the Milano from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino or latte.
