The MILANO is the only stovetop coffee maker that features a burn guard on the grip to protect your fingers from touching hot surfaces. In addition, it also features a ‘Made in Italy’ certified safety valve that prevents internal pressure from increasing to a dangerous point.
How to Make Stovetop Espresso Coffee
- Firstly remove the top part and the filter funnel of the coffee maker. Fill the lower chamber with cold fresh water up until the safety valve. Make sure not to fill past the safety valve.
- Then fill the filter funnel with freshly fine espresso coffee grounds. Once that’s done, put the filter funnel back into the lower chamber of the MILANO and screw the top part back on tightly. We recommend the Smooth silver espresso as our favorite coffee for the Milano making Italian style moka coffee.
- Next, put the MILANO on your stove on a low/medium flame setting. Turn the stove down when coffee bubbles up from the filter funnel and into the upper section. When the gurgling sound stops, this indicates that the coffee is ready
- Finally, remove the MILANO from your stovetop and serve. You can drink the coffee as a strong, flavourful espresso or use as a base for a cappuccino or latte.
What is Italian Coffee?
Their love of coffee is something that Italians are known for. In Italy, the most popular way of brewing coffee is in a Italian stovetop espresso maker or moka pot.
While espresso that is purchased in a cafe here is often made in a high pressure machine that runs at around 15 bars of pressure, stovetop espresso makers work with low pressure. Italian coffee is known for being an espresso like coffee that is strong and rich with flavour.

Safe for Many Stovetops
The Milano stovetop espresso maker is safe for many kinds of stove tops like: Electric coil, electric glass top, gas stoves, propane, or camping stoves as well. Unfortunately, because this espresso maker is made of aluminum, it can not be used with induction stoves.
How to Care for your Moka Pot
They say the older these pots are, the better they work. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Always hand wash them, and never put them in the dishwasher.
The MILANO is not dishwasher safe. In a dishwasher the aluminum will tarnish and turn black, ruining your moka pot. Every 3-6 months or so you should consider changing the silicone seal that is in the pots and the one that maintains pressure in the boiler section to brew the fine ground coffee.
Sizes of a Stovetop espresso pot
The Milano Espresso stove top coffee maker comes in five sizes: 1 cup, 3 cup, 6 cup, 9 cup & 12 cup. When choosing what size is right for you remember that cup sizes are espresso cups, and not common north American coffee mugs.
The actual capacity of the espresso makers is:
- 1 cup is 45 ml or 1.5 fl. oz
- 3 cup is 150 ml or 5 fl. oz.
- 6 cup is 275 ml or 9.3 fl. oz.
- 9 cup is 450 ml or 15.2 fl. oz.

The Best Coffee Maker for Camping
This stovetop espresso maker is perfect for travel and camping.

You can put it on a camping stove or over top of a camp fire and brew a delicious cup of moka coffee. Simply rinse out to clean and you’re all set.
For the cottage or the campsite, this is a wonderful way to brew. When brewing over a fire, make sure the fire is low and the flames do not come up above the moka pot.
