How to make coffee on the stovetop


Italian coffee is famous throughout the world. Try preparing it on the stovetop using a “Moka” coffeemaker.

Ingredients for 4 people

ground coffee beans

Among the main varieties of coffee, Arabica has less caffeine and thus a sweeter, more delicate flavor. Robusta, on the other hand, is stronger and more aromatic.


To make Italian coffee on the stovetop, pour water into the bottom part of the Moka.

Fill the filter with a sufficient amount of coffee in order to form a small bump on the top.

Do not pack down the coffee by pressing on it.

Screw on the top of the Moka and place it over low heat.

Wait until the coffee comes out and remove from the heat.
