Forget your electric gizmos and plastic and stainless steel contraptions - This is still the best way to make the finest coffee, with the possible exception of having a full-monty Gaggia! I bought mine years ago and all the bits are available as spares from John Lewis, most cookshops and other good stores. Get one, give it a go and you'll never look back, it will last you a lifetime and you'll certainly never bother with instant again!

Great little machines!

seems like a good deal !
does it use electricity or gas ?

It may not be true, but a chemist friend told me that there is some kind of link between Alzheimer's and ingestion of aluminium - and that these aluminium coffee pots are about the only aluminium cooking utensils people use any more... They also make stainless steel ones.

These things last forever, but I wouldn't recommend going for this one as a 6 cup is very big. You'll end up overdosing on caffeine and getting fed up of it. Better off going for a 2 cup. If you do buy one I'd recommend Lavazza coffee, gold if you can get it.

From my own experience of living in Italy for 5 years. The italians use theirs three times a day and never clean them as they think it improves the flavour.

Amazon also have a 3 cup at a slighlty lower price. Are the "cup" sizes normal cups or small expresso cup sizes ?

I want the electric one for my desk at work. Anyone know where the cheapest place to get it is?

I bought this one from Amazon last week. Didn't realise it was such a good deal or I would have posted first ! I think it's great, I use it on a ceramic hob and it works just fine.
The 6 cups are espresso sized I get about one mugs worth (my italian brother in law would be horrified) or 2 cups.
I started with a 1 cup version, which is minute.
I use it with Illy coffee, don't forget to take it off the heat before all the water has boiled, stops you getting the bitter end coffee (which is much easier to do with a 6 cup rather than a 1 cup).

I've had my Bialetti for 20 years now. It's getting on so it dribbles a bit but then the same goes for me. Recently I picked up a bean grinder from Starbucks for not much, and frankly freshly ground beans in one of these makes it a pleasure to get up in the morning. FWIW avoid their new-fangled cappucino maker. It looks great but it doesn't work and it's a total pain to clean You can't just rinse it out and leave it like the espresso pot.

O and the theory about aluminium giving you Alzheimer's has been disproved BTW. I know what causes it but I cant quite remember what it is...
#12
sorry to sound dumb but how does it work?
#13
We once had a an italian lodger come and stay with us around 1984 and she brought one of these Bialettis over as a gift for us.

Being Indian hard core tea guzzlers, we didnt really know much about fresh coffee....so this sat in a cupboard for a bout 20 years........i moved into my own place about 4 years ago and took this with me as I'd seen a friend use one.....and my god i cant live without it now....what an amazing and simple piece of kit that beats any new fangled electric coffe machine hands down.

I use it with any premium fairtrade coffee now :-)

It unscrews into three sections. Fill bottom cup with water. Put grounds in basket and place it inside bottom cup. Screw top part down onto bottom cup, place whole thing over heat, preferably tiny gas ring. Water boils, is forced up through coffee and up into top section. When it starts making gurgling noises, remove from heat (leaving a little bit of water in bottom cup, better for taste). Pour yourself an espresso. Sit back, read paper. Bliss.

Excellent machine!

I bought the stainless steel version a few years ago and enjoy the results. Try it if you like strong coffee.

You put ground coffee into a funnel which sits in the middle of the jug. You fill the bottom section with water, screw it back together and then just put the jug directly on the stove.

As the water boils, it "percolates" through the coffee up into the top section where you then pour it out and drink it.

EDIT: Blimey, everyone beat me to the punch lol. Do I get points for showing my working?
