Alfonso Bialetti opened a workshop in 1919 that made semi-finished goods in aluminum. In 1933, the Moka espresso changed the coffee brewing industry forever. Today the use of a Bialetti is such a daily ritual in many Italian homes. The brand is known for being reliable and high in quality. The coffee produced from the Bialetti is just as high in quality. The Moka is placed on a stove that will heat the water. The steam produced creates pressure in a chamber. The water is then pressed through the coffee granules and into a top compartment where the coffee is ready. The Bialetti should be a staple in your home, found here at Copa Habana.
