I already have a moka pot (a Bialetti Moka Express) at home, so that’s what I’ve been using. The process is not as easy as pouring hot water onto tea leaves, but it’s pretty close. And after testing my Moka Express against three other moka pots, I understand why this particular model has developed a cult following—it produces a strong, rich, espresso-like batch of coffee in less than 10 minutes. I then mix that brew with simple syrup and milk (shaken and microwaved in a jar) to make a quasi caffe latte (video).

Our pick

Bialetti Moka Express

Bialetti Moka Express

Classic design, flavorful coffee

This moka pot—which, of the four models we tested, comes closest to Alfonso Bialetti’s original design—has a classic look, is dead simple to use, and brews coffee as rich and flavorful as that of any model we tested.

Buying Options

$36 from Amazon
(6-cup)

Not only is the Moka Express easy to use and more affordable than other moka pots I tested for this guide—and much more so than a traditional espresso machine—but its retro look is also evocative of a (at least in some ways) simpler time.
