Minos Moka Pot Esspresso Maker looks larger in the photos but it’s actually a cute little pot. The way it works is you place water in the bottom up to the line and then you fill and pack the tamper with freshly ground coffee beans. A coarse grind works best. Then you place it inside the pot and turn the stove on. Don’t them the flame up too high as you don’t want the sides of the pot to burn. The pressure of the heat makes the coffee boil into the top compartment of the pot. When you open the top and see liquid fill it up then it’s done. It makes a delicious brew. It also comes with extra silicone handle covers. To top compartment is a bit difficult to clean because it doesn’t come apart so you should purchase a small bottle brush to clean it.
