Moka: simple but with differences.
Moka itself is actually a simple tool, but it can really make the difference between a good coffee and a bad one.
The most important requirement in our choice is obviously given by the quality for the final result, the flavor of the coffee.
Of course, quality depends on many variables and not only on the moka: that is, whether it is a moka coffee machine or a Neapolitan coffee machine.
Traditional machines are mostly made of aluminum: fast to achieve the temperature but to maintain more complicated, as they are fragile and less resistant to shocks.
In addition, this material tends to give a metallic aftertaste, and when it is heated very much, it risks that it burns.
There are also coffee maker made of stainless steel : very robust, but slower than aluminum, they keep the coffe hot without changing the taste and aroma.
The steel and ceramic coffee machine feature a steel boiler and a ceramic jug, they are not only aesthetically very pleasing, but also produce excellent quality coffee due to the lower water temperature.
Finally, steel and glass coffee machines are not used very much for two reasons: they are fragile and have a high thermal dispersion.
This is a fundamental factor that is considered when we select the best Moka coffee machine.
