Bialetti Moka Pot

Coffee – it’s a must have, and we’ve just discovered this fabulous tool – the Moka Pot – that has helped me (Robert, in particular) make the best coffee that we’ve ever had at home.

In the course this review you may want to click on the Amazon Link to purchase your own fabulous Moka Pot.

Well, the normal way we made coffee was using a single serve Keurig brewer, and it indeed served us well, but it finally gave up the ghost. We needed a solution – a space saving solution – and the Moka Pot was it.

When I made coffee before the Moka pot, it was simply a process of dumping a little water into the Keurig, placing the pre-packaged coffee container in the hopper, and pressing “Start”.

Now however, I get the satisfaction of ‘Making’ our coffee. I measure the coffee, pre-heat water, assemble the pot, and then – watch it work.

I can’t tell you the simple satisfaction of watching the rich, ebony liquid flow and bubble up into collection chamber.

In addition to making fantastic coffee, it is quite the space saver! Very handy for a tiny kitchen.


It is a fun tool to use (just be careful – it’s not a toy) and the fact that there is no paper or plastic waste afterward is a positive bonus. (Thinking Green there).

And now – I’m sure I have to go make myself and espresso, and a cappuccino for Jessica.

    and would like to find out where u got this from. many

  2. Hello! I see you have a Greywolf. How do you like it? I have been looking at one, but I also like one called an R-Pod. What are your thoughts? Thanks.

    1. Hi Susan. It depends on what you need. The R-Pods seem very cool, but probably not a good fit for families. How many will be RVing in your RV?

    2. Hey Susan – I apologize for my late response!! We love our Grey Wolf. It is compact and inexpensive, but still looks nice. We have had it for 2 years and don’t regret our purchase.

Thanks for reading, please let us know what you think and leave us a comment!
