Macchinetta del caffè (literally "small coffee machine" in Italian language)
Bialetti is the world's largest manufacturer of domestic coffee makers.
In 1933, Bialetti produced the first Moka Express Stove-top Espresso Maker - a simple yet delicious way to make coffee. Now it is estimated that somewhere in the region of 120 million cups of coffee are made every day using this design of coffee maker.
Some Espresso enthusiasts consider the Bialetti Brikka one of the best Stovetop Espresso Makers available due to it's unique "Brikka-System".
With the "Brikka System" Bialetti revolutionizes the stovetop espresso market and allows the Brikka to prepare espresso with “crema”. Thanks to a special pressure-controlled valve you can now enjoy the rich and intense flavor of a creamy coffee.
This new style Brikka even got better - the maker now features an opening in the lid that allows the condensation to escape. This way no, condensation will drip back and dilute your espresso experience. Simple and genius.
With the Bialetti Brikka, you can enjoy a special coffee every day without leaving the comfort of your kitchen. The Bialetti Brikka system is the product of intense technological and qualitative research by Bialetti and is patented worldwide.
Carefully follow the instructions and enjoy an authentic espresso with "crema" just like one from the Italian bar. Bialetti Brikka is yet another great product brought to you by the ever present “little man with the moustache”.

How to make the perfect espresso.
Fill the boiler (marked A in the diagram) with water almost up to the safety release valve and insert the funnel-shaped metal filter (B). Add finely-ground coffee to the filter as shown below. Tightly screw the upper part (C, which has a second metal filter at the bottom) onto the base. Place the pot on a suitable heat source, bring the water to its boiling point, and thereby create steam in the boiler.
A gasket ensures a tightly closed unit and allows for pressure to safely build up in the lower section, where a safety valve provides a necessary release in case this pressure should get too high (with clean filters, that should not happen). For best results, fill up the entire filter with coffee and place over medium to medium-high heat.
The steam eventually reaches a high enough pressure to gradually force the surrounding boiling water up the funnel through the coffee powder and into the upper chamber (C), where the coffee is collected. When the lower chamber is almost empty, steam bubbles mix with the upstreaming water, producing a characteristic gurgling noise.
As with percolators, the pot should not be left on the stove so long that the coffee boils. Ideally, with a little practice, it should be removed from the heat before it actually starts gurgling - usually, when only about half of the top chamber has been filled.
The bottom chamber (A) contains water. When heated, steam pressure pushes the water through a basket containing ground coffee (B) into the collecting chamber (C).
