The Bialetti coffee maker (also known as the Moka Express or more commonly as the stovetop) was developed by Italian inventor, Alfonso Bialetti, in 1933. However, it's peak popularity was in 1950s and today the Bialetti stovetop can be found in nine out of ten Italian households, as well as all around the globe. The functionality, simplicity and rich brew of the stovetop has made it a must-have coffee accessory, not just in the home, but in coffee locations around the world. The stovetop is a simple and elegant device, made from aluminium traditionally (although it can be made from stainless steel as well). Simply fill the bottom chamber with water, add coffee grind to the basket and place inside the chamber, then screw the top chamber onto the bottom chamber and place on a burner (make sure the burner is not bigger than the bottom of the stovetop), then let it brew and drink when ready!
Today, Bialetti focuses on growing their product range, bringing a multitude of styles and colours to the market, but also fusing their innovations with their Italian roots and passion for coffee.
