The MILANO STONE Moka pot is made from food safe aluminium a non-toxic silicon gasket seal. This moka pot can be used on all gas and electric stovetops, however because it is aluminum it is not suitable for induction stovetops.

How to make a stovetop espresso
- Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker and fill the lower part with fresh water. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve. TIP: Preheat your water before filling the boiler to make your brewing process faster and more consistent!
- Then fill the filter funnel with freshly fine ground espresso coffee. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the MILANO and screw the top part back on. We recommend the Smooth silver espresso as our favorite coffee for the Milano making Italian style moka coffee.
- 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. The gurgling sound will have stopped indicating 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.

How to care for your Moka pot
They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher. In a dishwasher the aluminium will tarnish and turn black. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.
Perfect for Camping as well!
This Moka Pot coffee maker is also perfect for taking camping. To do so you should take a manual coffee grinder like the Bremen Mini with you as well. You can put it on a camping stove and brew a delicious cup of Moka Coffee on the go. Simply rinse out to clean and you’re all set. For the cottage or the campsite, this is a wonderful way to brew.
