Once upon a time there was Bialetti… and his Moka coffee maker

The Bialetti coffee maker is a must for coffee lovers. But be careful to clean it well to keep the unique taste of your favorite drink!  

When we talk about Italian coffee maker, we are referring to this famous Moka coffee maker, originally made of aluminum with a bakelite handle. An invention of Alfonso Bialetti who patented it in 1933 under the name of Moka Express. The Italian company Bialetti has continued to manufacture it ever since. It is made up of three elements: a tank, a filter which fits into it and an upper part, screwed to the whole, through which the coffee rises: an espresso with a strong flavor. You can choose a quality coffee to prepare it, if your coffee maker, whether Italian or filter, is not cleaned regularly, your little black will lack aromas.

Hand cleaning your Italian coffee maker

Your Italian coffee maker must be pampered: we forget the dishwasher and we put on pretty dishwashing gloves to clean it!  

Never put your Italian coffee maker in the dishwasher. The material in which it is made, aluminum or steel, does not like detergents and aggressive washing. After each use, clean your Italian coffee maker with hot water and allow it to air dry.

On your Italian coffee maker, the war on limestone

White vinegar is your ally to clean your Italian coffee maker and make it shine like on the first day!  

The limestone deposits are recognizable by white spots formed on the walls of the tank. To remove them, fill the latter with a mixture of hot water and white vinegar, and put the coffee maker to boil as if you were making your coffee. The liquid thus goes up the entire circuit and cleans the entire coffee maker properly. Rinse it thoroughly, and then make a coffee, which you will throw away. Repeat the operation every 15 days.

When caffeine sticks

Black spots appear with use, due to caffeine. To make them disappear, boil a mixture of water and lemon juice in the same way as you do for limestone with white vinegar. Rinse all three elements of the coffee maker well and allow to air dry.
