No. of Recommendations: 0 risk of turning this into "Retire Early - Coffee Edition," here is what I have heard:

1. the steam pressure used to make real espresso and the pressure used by a moka pot are radically different. Moka pots have much lower pressure. How much lower I couldn't tell you, not being a true coffee geek.

2. the moka pot doesn't really produce "crema" - that lovely thick frothy coating so beloved of espresso drinkers.

sounds about right ...but sounds maybe a bit too geeky.

check out the reviews ....


...sounds LIKE're not getting .true. espresso ... might be getting something better.
