How to Use a 2 Part Stove Top Coffee Maker
A two-part hob coffeemaker produces rich, flavourful coffee. (Cafetière image by Michel-R from

Prepare coffee without a coffeemaker using an old fashioned hob coffeemaker, also known as a Moka espresso pot. These simply designed coffeemakers can also be taken on camp-outs for fresh coffee miles from the nearest kitchen. Rather than conventional coffee, these coffeemakers produce a strong espresso, which can be mixed with an equal amount of hot water for a milder cup of coffee.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Moka espresso pot (hob coffeemaker)
  • Water
  • Filter basket
  • Ground coffee beans (espresso grind)

  1. 1

    Fill the bottom half of the hob coffeepot with water to the line on the inside.

  2. 2

    Add the ground coffee to the filter basket up to the brim, levelling off the extra with the back of a butter knife.

  3. 3

    Place the filter basket into the top portion of the coffeemaker and check the seal of the gasket and filter disk.

  4. 4

    Screw the top half of the coffeemaker onto the bottom tightly.

  5. 5

    Place the coffeemaker on the stove over medium high heat to heat the water in the bottom.

  6. 6

    Heat the coffeepot for 4 to 5 minutes or until you hear a gurgling sound, which indicates that all of the water has percolated through the coffee.

  7. 7

    Serve the coffee from the top half of the pot as espresso or mix it with an equal amount of hot water for milder coffee.
