Bialetti Moka Express

The original stovetop coffeemaker, the Bialetti Moka Express, has been serving up fresh Italian style espresso coffee since 1933. 

The Bialetti Moka Express is made in Italy and is constructed from food grade aluminum. It includes a sturdy stay cool nylon handle and knob and Bialetti’s patented safety valve. Moka pots produce a rich, authentic espresso and Bialetti’s distinctive eight-sided shape allows it to diffuse heat perfectly to enhance the aroma of your coffee. Moka pots are compact and easy-to-use, making them perfect to use at home or when travelling.

To produce an authentic espresso in minutes, simply fill the bottom chamber with water, add your favourite espresso ground coffee to the funnel, and gently heat on your gas, electric, or ceramic stovetop.

To use a Moka Express with an induction stovetop, use a Bialetti Induction Hob Converter with your Moka pot. For Moka's up to 6 cup size, use a 13cm converter. For Moka's 9 cups and above, use a 20cm converter.

NB: the cup size refers to an espresso cup which is approximately 30mls.

Material: Aluminium body, nylon handle and knob.

Cup Size Approximate Brewed Coffee Volume* Approximate Total Height (cm) Approximate Width (cm) at bottom of base
3 cup 130ml 16.0 9.0
6 cup
250ml 21.5 10.5
9 cup 410ml 24.5 11.5

*The actual volume of brewed coffee is dependent on the volume of water and the grind or type of coffee added to the pot prior to brewing.

  • The Bialetti Moka Express is NOT dishwasher safe.
  • The Bialetti Moka Express can be used with a gas, electric, or ceramic stovetop. It is NOT suitable for induction. To use the Moka Express with an induction stovetop, use a Bialetti Induction Hob Converter with your Moka pot.

Before First Use:

  • Before using the Moka Express for the first time, it’s a good idea to hand wash all the parts in hot water first. 
  • We recommended that you throw away the first 3 brews.
  • It’s really important that you don’t use the handle while unscrewing the Moka pot, as this can cause the handle to break.
