In this video I unbox and show how to use an Imusa brand Coffee maker; This type of coffee maker is typically referred to as Moka Pot or a Percolator. People often say the results are espresso meets Turkish coffee.
Moka pots are sometimes referred to as stove-top espresso makers and produce coffee with an extraction ratio similar to that of a conventional espresso machine.
I am aware of my incorrect pronunciation of the word “ESpresso”. I say “Expresso” in the video. Hope the coffee gods will forgive me. I do apologize if my incorrect pronouncing offends anyone. The video is already made but I truly do hope this video helps anyone considering a “stove top percolator/espresso” maker. And if u decide to get one..pay a little bit more and go for stainless steel instead of aluminum.

I use Gevalia coffee at home and keep my coffeemaker clean but even when I pour a fresh just-brewed cup it doesn’t equal the flavor and smoothness of restaurant coffee. I also store my coffee in small amounts in an airtight, opaque container to keep it fresh.
What is the secret? Is it true that restaurants use an additive or flavor enhancer in their coffee to reduce the acid?
I also get Gevalia Peruvian Organic , Kona, Jamaica blue,etc . What I’ve found is that it requires commitment and top quality equipment to make consistently superior coffee. Brew temp is critical 195-205F . Most home drip brewers never reach that temp!. Grind is also critical (never buy pre ground) Exception may be flavored coffee. Get a burr grinder and grind on demand only. Get a COMMERCIAL brewer for the correct brew temp and short brew time ( hear fast brew time low acid) Newco makes a good one . advise the smallest model available to use at home. Use European method Per 6 oz cup 1 std coffee measure 1/8 cup grounds. The secret ingredient is salt (SALT) a small am mt <1/8t.Try putting 1 oz real Maple Syrup in the caraf and then brew your coffee Filtered water also is a must.
I order a coffee at Starbucks with 1/2 hot water since I think their coffee is too strong. When I tell them, "I want a coffee with 1/2 hot water" they always look confused. How should I order this in the future?
I have been asking for 1/2 hot water and that is when I get the confused look by baristas.
I like the flavor of Starbucks and don’t like Dunkin and McDonalds coffee.
It would be nice to know what size coffee you drink.
if you want a grande (16 oz) coffee half hot water. You should order a short coffee (8oz) in a grande cup, with hot water.
because half of 16 is eight, it will save you a good amount of money over time.
Now if you want a venti (20 oz) you should order a tall (12oz) coffee in a venti cup, with hot water.
This is the easiest way for us baristas to know what you want.
Keep in mind you can ask the people at the counter and they will be more then happy to teach you an easy way to order a drink.
I just bought a 4-cup coffee maker to replace my broken Krups. The directions mentioned that, before making the first cup of coffee, I should run water through the system first. I did this, but even after a month of using the coffee maker every day, the coffee tastes like plastic. I’ve been using the same filters, water, and coffee as I did in my old machine, so it has to be the new coffee maker. How do I get the plastic taste out of my coffee?
1. Contact the manufacturer. It might have been recalled. In that case they should off to replace it at no charge.
2. Try running a coffee pot cleaner thru it. You can also use diluted vinegar.
My search for the best coffee maker is a never ending quest. I have tried them all and in the end I went over to a special page on Amazon to find what real buyers actually think. It saved me time and money.
Hey there. Can anybody tell me, why coffee tastes better, if I buy it in a coffeeshop?
For example: If I make myself coffe with exactly the Dunkin’ Donuts coffee ground, they use to make their coffee it doesn’t taste as good as the coffee they sell, by far not. Why? I mean; I used the same one? What do they make different? I have tried out making the coffee with about every ratio of coffee and water, but I really never got the taste!
I hope anybody can help me!
@Mia s: I was talking about plain coffee, without cream and sugar.
Several things here:
If you do not put any effort into making the coffee the experience is better.
Dunkin’ Donuts has to clean their coffee makers regularly as part of Health Dept requirements. Therefore there will be little in the way of stale taste, leftover grounds in the system, murky water, etc.
Your drip coffee maker at home probably brews coffee that has a weird bitter taste. If so, it needs to be cleaned. Run a pot of water through that has about 1/4 white vinegar. No coffee in this one! Then run straight water. Run the filter holder through the dishwasher. This ought to improve the taste of your coffee. If not, buy a new drip machine. I learned that the Best Coffee is made with a French press. They are cheap, brew excellent coffee, require no filters, and can be broken down completely and run through the dishwasher.
Coffee contains caffeine which increases your blood pressure and heart rate. My question is how much can a cup of coffee increase your blood pressure and heart rate?
It’s hardly anything. I was thinking of this once as i had high blood pressure and the coffee only raises it something insignificant like 5mmgh. So if you have a high BP get it checked out, don’t assume it’s the coffee.
First impressions: This is one quick and amazing little device. No wonder it obtained the Specialised Java Organization of This country’s popular Qualified Machine Devices award: one of only four devices to do so as of this composing. This device creates very hot coffee indeed: I calculated the coffee in the pre-heated heat carafe right after preparing at 188° F. With a non-preheated carafe the coffee was 183.2° F right after preparing finished.
Temperatures during preparing were at 195° F at 58 a few moments into preparing and achieved as great as 205.8° F temporarily at the 4:04 moment level and at 203.3° F at the end of the preparing pattern (see photos). Brewing there was a time 5 moments 48 a few moments, so just under six moments.

I don’t need expert coffee advice; I just want your best guess of how much of my finely ground coffee I should use with 20 ounces of water. And should the spoon be heaping or leveled?
i use one heaping tablespoonful per each cup of water for strong coffee and i use just a rounded tablespoon full for each cup for regular coffee. so 8oz= one cup so a tablespoonful per 8 oz. good luck with your coffee makes the day better if your Coffee tastes good!
