In use, followed the recommendations of throwing away the first few batches by using some Illy that was left after the loss my old Gaggia. It was used on a low heat (gas hob), making sure the flame did not extend around the side of the base. After five minutes, the first treacle-coloured coffee gently and quietly flowed out of the column in the top of the pot (lid up to watch!). Gradually, the colour lightened until nearly clear and a slight gurgling sound heard, removed the pot from the heat. Out of interest, tasted the first sample before throwing away, it had a rather bitter taste. After a couple of samples, made my first coffee to drink, for this used fresh Lavazza Rosa. Followed the same procedure as before but removed the pot from the heat somewhat sooner while the coffee had a brownish tint to it and here was no gurgling sound and waited while the rest of the water was used up. Drinking this coffee was so different from those initial throwaway batches, perfect!. It took just under 5 minutes of gentle heat before the first coffee appeared and then about another minute or so to complete. I would say that it was as good as anything made using the Gaggia machine. At the price it is, one could buy a selection of pot sizes and still have change left over for what an inferior machine would cost.
Additional comments: since having the Bialetti for a while now I thought it would be worth adding a few extra comments. Being used at least once or twice daily, the pot has now acquired a nice coffee discoloration inside, just rinsed out when used. One thing that I think makes the Bialetti well worth having compared to any cheap copies is how well it pours. The spout is very well designed and does not drip at all. Also, the lid fits very well. I have taken advantage of using it with a range of other Italian coffees that are not normally found on supermarket shelves. These include different coffees by Kimbo, Segafredo, Bristot. All of the coffees are enjoyable; I just need to decide which are my favourites as it takes a while to get through about 7 different types without having too many open at the same time. If anyone is interested, I can reply with the link for where I found the coffees.
We had a no-name knock-off one of these for years which we've grown to love - it's travelled everywhere with us and used all the time. That one lost a part so has been retired. We already had a larger size Bialetti which is nice but not used as much. So we went original this time round.
We use this almost every day (sometimes more than once a day). It's even better than our much loved fake one as it has a very slightly larger capacity, is slightly more chunky and has a better spout which doesn't drip. I still think the handle could be marginally improved as it moves slightly which lessens the sensation of quality - but that's nit-picking.
Works well, makes great coffee. We couple this with a cafetiere for frothing microwaved milk.
Tips if you're new to these:
1. If you're grinding beans yourself, go to the finest setting and then back off a little - you don't want the very finest grind.
2. This has no measuring line that we can see in the water chamber - we fill to just below the pressure valve (or less). I’ve read a tip that it’s worth heating the water in a kettle first. This means that the coffee will come through before the heat has a chance to burn the coffee in the holder (not sure if this is true or not).
3. Only compress the coffee in the holder very lightly - don't compress it hard (this is advice we've read although in fairness I did used to compress it more in the old pot and didn't hit issues for a long time)
4. Use on a low to moderate heat (lower is better). If on gas, the flame shouldn't lick up the sides of the pot.
5. Keep an eye on it and turn off the heat just before the water as all come through - will need a couple of tries to get the hang. It keeps coming through after you turn the heat off because of heat stored in the metal.
6. Ensure lid is closed before it finishes or it will splutter coffee all over your cooker :-)
The coffee holder is hard to clean but running water through from both directions and using a normal dish brush on the perforated disc will remove most of any coffee stuck in the bit you can’t see.
If you want to froth milk...
1. For a full pot of coffee for two large mugs, we use 400ml of semi-skimmed (semi seems to work better than full fat) in a microwaveable jug
2. Heat for 2 mins (we have a microwave which is rated at 1000w but in practice is not that powerful - probably 850??) as soon as you put the coffee on.
3. Once the coffee starts coming through, heat the milk for a further 1:30 (experiment to get it how you like in your microwave - too hot ruins it IMHO)
4. Pour the coffee out between the mugs (a little into each at a time rather than all in one and then the other - the coffee can be different strengths in the pot as it comes through differently and may not have completely mixed).
5. Pour all the milk quickly but carefully into your cafetiere (quickly so that any skins goes with it rather than staying in the jug where its a pain to clean).
6. Insert the plunger and turn around so that the mesh is away from the spout (some have a blank piece on the opposite side to the mesh - ideal, otherwise use just the edge of the mesh part which usually blocks off the spout).
7. Froth by using the plunger up and down.
8. Push plunger in and turn around so that the mesh is at the spout. Pour most of the liquid milk into the mugs.
9. Either - froth the remainder some more and then pour out or, remove the plunger and pour straight away holding back the froth with a spoon at the spout, then spoon the foam on top. Experiment depending on how much froth to milk you want.
10. For chocolate sprinkles, get a shaker (supermarket kitchen sections sometimes have these) and put in one teaspoon of icing sugar to six parts cocoa powder (or just use drinking chocolate powder unmixed if you prefer). Swirl in the shaker to mix.
My coffee addiction is calling - I'm off to use my Bialetti.
Die 6-Tassen Version ist für Zwei Personen gut dimensioniert. Lässt sich aber auch komplett in einen Bodum-Thermo Becher als "To Go" einfüllen. Wie gesagt, Output sind etwa 0,3 Liter pures Kaffee vergnügen, daheim und unterwegs.
Finalement je l'ai acheté et je dois dire que je ne suis pas déçu.
J'ai respecté à la lettre les recommandations indiquées dans la documentation et le café est effectivement très bon après la période de "rodage" (culottage) de cette cafetière.Je résume donc ce qui a déjà été dit: faire 3 rinçage à l"eau claire (la faire fonctionner évidemment) et 3 cafés (qui ne seront pas consommés) puis ne plus laver au savon votre cafetière mais seulement la rincer à l'eau clair.
En ce qui concerne d’éventuelles fuites...que nenni.....il faut bien faire attention à ne pas laisser de café sur le bord du filtre et serrez correctement la partie haute de la cafetière (ne pas trop serrer car vous endommagerez rapidement votre joint: perso j'applique moins d'un 1/8ème de tour après contact de la partie supérieur avec la partie inférieure).
Le seul petit bémol, impossible à éviter, est l'écoulement des quelques gouttes d'eau lié à la condensation de la vapeur sur le couvercle lors de l'ouverture de ce dernier une fois le café fait (vous me direz qu'il suffit de ne pas l'ouvrir mais il est nécessaire de légèrement "touiller" le café afin de la rendre homogène (café fort au fond)).
Enfin, je voudrais terminer sur le fait que je suis très satisfait de ne pas succomber à la mode des cafetières à capsule dont une célèbre marque est le fer de lance (vous ruine à l'achat et ensuite vous plume à l'achat du café....faite le prix d'un équivalent au kilo de café....Aîe j'ai mal...).
Cette cafetière c’est 25 euros et ensuite vous utilisez le café que vous voulez et le dosage que vous voulez....et vos invités seront tout aussi ravis :-)
Anyone who loves coffe needs one of this !!
I normally fill the bottom part with boiling water to speed things up a bit but you need to be very careful if doing this to avoid getting burnt.
The only thing I'd say which applies to all of these peculators is the coffee is not as strong as you might think. This 6 espresso pot will only make two good sized Americanos at a decent strength. I don't drink espressos so can't compare but I buy plenty of Americanos from roadside filling stations and to get a similar strength you can only add a little boiling water to the coffee that this pot makes.
It does taste really good though. :)
The only thing wrong with that, is I like my coffee in a mug, not a dainty cup-ful. This bigger pot solves that problem, giving me a strong brew in enough quantity to caffeinate me all morning.
In case you don't know, this is a three piece pot, with a water reservoir in the bottom, a metal filter to put the coffee in, and when you put it on the stove the coffee rises up into the top, serving pot. The top and the bottom parts screw firmly together once you've filled the bottom with water and spooned your coffee into the filter. Cleaning can be slightly fiddly, since you need to remember to clean coffee out of the filter on the bottom of the top piece too.
You can easily make lattes by adding frothed/steamed milk or watering it down with added hot water to make a diluted black coffee. I personally have espresso shots and make the odd latte when i have more time.
I believe it comes guaranteed for a year but this is so nicely built that it should last way beyond a few years. Anyone in doubt over purchasing, just do it ! You'll thank yourself after.
L'ensemble se nettoie très facilement grâce au joint amovible.
However...........I shared a flat with an Italian, when a student, who brought their Bialetti into my life. Other styles of coffee maker arrived over the years, and then I encountered a Bialetti again, many years later. Maybe it's nostalgia but nothing seems as fine. There is something about the taste and aroma of coffee which differs, done this way.
The design of the basic machine, as this is, is beautiful, and it functions perfectly, without drip. I had a smaller version (three cup) and was then offered (to review) a cheaper alternative to the Bialetti, by Aeropress, with the added refinement of a see through lid - which, yes can be useful. This was a six cup, which is why I took it. However, there were stupid design tweaks which meant that the spout dripped as you poured, and an edge placed lid, rather than the central button, was a less easy opening. I really did not like it, though I did like the larger capacity.
And then............I got distracted one morning (don't ask) and the Aeropress boiled dry. The handle fell off, the see through lid melted.
Oh joy! Coming onto this site to immediately get a replacement stove top pot (which HAD to be the classic Bialetti) it turned out this was on special offer, too.
I am back in history once more.
The great thing is, the older your machine, the nicer the coffee tastes. The advice is, with a new machine, to make 3 pots of coffee which you pour away before your first brew to drink. The pot should not be washed with detergent, but just rinsed out thoroughly with water, and obviously, the grounds emptied out. The slight oil in coffee will coat the machine, and give that patina to the machine and smooth aroma and flavour to the brew
Obviously, if you like coffee with a crema. this machine wont do that. I use the 6 cup that this is to make a mug of black Americano, two scoops, freshly ground beans, approx 250 ml of water to the level mark in the base (an espresso being 40 ml)
