What grind should I use for Moka pot?
Choose the right size moka pot. Use a consistent fine to medium-fine grind size. You shouldn’t go all out and use espresso-fine grinds. Those could clog the filter screen and generate a dangerous amount of pressure. Go for coffee that’s just a little finer than your average drip coffee grounds.
What grind should I use for Bialetti?
Use espresso grind of your favourite coffee blend. Do not use extracts, infusions or instant coffee as they may block the filter plate. Your Bialetti pot is designed to be used with full measures of water and coffee, and will not work properly, for instance, if you only half fill the pot with water and coffee.
Can I use regular ground coffee in a Moka pot?
Too fine, and your coffee will taste bitter and burnt. The best grind for a Moka pot coffee is medium to medium-fine, coarser than you’ d use for an espresso machine but finer than for a drip coffee maker. To achieve this, we recommend buying whole bean coffee and grinding it yourself.
Can you use coarse grind for Moka pot?
Tips for better brews with a Moka pot Choose quality, freshly roasted coffee beans. They should be whole beans, ground only just before brewing, to retain as much of the coffee’s aromas and flavours. Unlikely from espresso brewing, this method needs a rather coarse grind, such as with pour-over coffees.
How much coffee do you put in a moka pot?
Grind your coffee on a drip coffee setting, about as fine as table salt. You need enough coffee to fill the filter basket, which is about 15 to 17 grams (or about 2.5 Tablespoons) for a 4-cup Bialetti moka pot.
Why is my moka pot sputtering?
So, why is my Moka pot sputtering? Moka pot sputtering is often caused by excessive internal pressure due to too much heat.

Is moka pot coffee bad for you?
Over time, coffee oils and micro-grounds build up all over the insides of the moka pot. These are harmless when it comes to your health (unless those grounds are in the safety valve), but they do impact your brew’s flavor. Those old oils can go rancid and the grounds continually impart bitter flavors into later brews.
Which is better French press or moka pot?
