Commonly found in Italy, stovetop espresso makers produce a dark coffee almost as strong as that from a conventional espresso maker. A small cup that screws into the body of the maker holds the water, which when heated, forces its way up through the coffee grounds held in a small cup of the maker. The coffee then works through a small tube and into the coffee pitcher. They are known colloquially as moka pots, after an early trademark.

 

Stovetop espresso makers are conveniently portable, since they require no electricity to use. This makes them great for tourists and hikers. While stovetop espresso makers produce dark coffee, the coffee usually lacks the fine crema produced by conventional espresso makers.stainless steel electric coffee grinder

Sometimes misnamed "expresso", very strong coffee may also be brewed on a stove in a three-chambered metal pot, known as a moka, moka express, caffettiera, macchinetta or percolator. The bottom chamber contains the water, the middle chamber the ground coffee beans and the top chamber holds the resulting coffee. When the pot is heated on a stove, the pressure from the steam in the bottom pot causes the water to be forced up through a tube in the center, pushed through the ground coffee, and finally collected in the top pot. However, this process does not produce sufficient pressure to make a true espresso, resulting in a lack of crema and none of the characteristic taste. Adding your favorite brandy, schnapps, whiskey always can improve the taste of coffee made in this fashion.
