NEW Premium Milano Stone added to the MILANO family!
The MILANO STONE from GROSCHE is a classic Italian stovetop espresso maker, also called a Moka pot. It’s perfect for anyone who enjoys strong coffee or a shot of espresso. Unlike other filter coffee makers, this brewing method extracts more caffeine and flavours through light pressure in the funnel filter. This gives stovetop espresso a stronger and richer cup than a standard percolator. The MILANO stovetop espresso maker will make your morning cup of coffee one to look forward to.
The safest stovetop espresso maker on the market
The MILANO STONE Moka pot is made from food safe aluminium a non-toxic silicon gasket seal. This moka pot can be used on all gas and electric stovetops, however because it is aluminum it is not suitable for induction stovetops. The MILANO is the only moka pot that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching the hot surface of the pot. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.
- Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker and fill the lower part with fresh water. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve. TIP: Preheat your water before filling the boiler to make your brewing process faster and more consistent!
- Then fill the filter funnel with freshly fine ground espresso coffee. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower part of the MILANO and screw the top part back on. We recommend the Smooth silver espresso as our favorite coffee for the Milano making Italian style moka coffee.
- Next, put the MILANO on your stove on a low-medium flame setting. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and into the upper section. The gurgling sound will have stopped indicating the coffee is ready
- Finally, remove the MILANO from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino.
What is Italian coffee?
Their love of coffee is something that Italians are known for. In Italy, the most popular way of brewing coffee is in an Italian stovetop espresso maker or Moka pot. While espresso that is purchased in a cafe here is often made in a high pressure machine that runs at around 15 bars of pressure, stovetop espresso makers work with lower pressure.
Safe for many stovetops!
The Milano stovetop espresso maker is safe for many kinds of stove tops like: Electric coil, electric glass top, gas stoves, propane, or camping stoves as well. Unfortunately, because this espresso maker is made of alluminum, it can not be used with induction stoves.
How to care for your Moka pot
They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher. In a dishwasher the aluminium will tarnish and turn black. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.
