About the Brikka
The Bialetti Brikka is capable of delivering espresso-style shots without an expensive espresso machine. While it lacks the pressure generated by an espresso maker, it makes up in ingenuity.
The Brikka uses a weight on top of the pipe which generates extra pressure inside the pot. This extra pressure and heat ends up delivering a shot that has visible, delicious, golden crema, similar to what you get on an espresso machine.
The Brikka is a twist on the classic Moka Pot, and this step by step guide is sure to help you get a fantastic shot, every time, regardless of what type of Moka pot you have.
Why Don't You Give It A Shot? (Amazon Link):
STEP 1: GET THE ESSENTIALS
- Syzygy Specialty Coffee
- Moka Pot (like the Bialetti Brikka)
- Kettle with Warm Water
STEP 2: THE RIGHT GRIND
Grind your Syzygy Specialty Coffee finer than pour-over coffee, but coarser than traditional espresso.
STEP 3: MEASURE THE WATER
The top chamber will have a marking that shows how much water should be poured. If it doesn't, simply make sure to fill the bottom chamber with water just below the valve.
STEP 4: POUR ON THE BOTTOM CHAMBER
Pour the warm water into the bottom chamber. The water level should be just below the valve (the valve is the hexagonal washer on the bottom chamber).
STEP 5: PLACE THE FUNNEL
Place the funnel on the bottom chamber. It should fit perfectly and flush.
STEP 6: DON'T TAMP IT, LEVEL IT
Add the coffee into the funnel and tap the bottom on a hard surface to settle the grounds. Use the back of a knife to level the coffee. Never tamp the coffee!
STEP 7: SEAL THE DEAL
Make sure the rim is completely clean and free of coffee - this could prevent you from getting a perfect seal. Screw the upper chamber to the bottom chamber tightly.
STEP 8: HEAT IT UP
Set the heat to medium. Once the coffee starts brewing, turn the stove off. The residual heat will be enough to finish the brew. Leaving it on the stove could burn the coffee.
STEP 9: SERVE AND ENJOY!
Immediately after it finishes brewing, pour the coffee onto a warm mug. Add steamed milk for a cappuccino or latte, water for an Americano, or drink straight.
