Background

The Moka pot is an Italian-made eight-sided gift to all coffee lovers. Invented by Luigi De Ponti and named after the Yemenite city of Mocha, the Moka pot’s iconic design is now widely recognized in both Latin America and Europe. My grandparents and relatives have used it for years as a celebrated family tradition, and even my great aunt Edith, loves starting her day by brewing a fresh cup of coffee with “La Greca,” as we call it in Spanish. Due to its ability to produce a creamy, thick, and condensed cup of coffee, the Moka pot has made a comeback! The best part: Electricity and fancy equipment is not required for a perfectly dense cup of coffee, reminiscent of espresso. If you haven’t already, we hope you’ll give the Moka pot a try and let us know what you think.
