Product Details


Product Description

With the invention of the stove top espresso coffee maker, espresso, long a staple of Italian cafés and bars became available for home consumption. As the cold water in the lower chamber heats, the pressure from its boiling forces the water up through the coffee grounds. In just a few minutes, espresso emerges from the spout into the upper chamber as the pot hisses and gurgles. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand until the lower chamber is releasing only steam. The lower water tank holds a metal filter and features a safety valve. The upper tank fills with perfectly brewed coffee. Now Italy's favorite aluminum coffeemaker can go to work in your kitchen, making delicious espresso on gas or electric stove tops. Now available in a mirror finished aluminum. Larger sizes are listed below.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels cheap, but it's not. June 30 2014

I use this every day. For the money, well damn, you couldn't do better. Really light as well, which is a plus for back packing.

Just love this pot. I use it to make 1 cup of Americano coffee and it just about fits. Easy to use and to clean.

2.0 out of 5 stars Functions Poorly Dec 14 2012

I've gone through a number of low to middle-priced stovetop espresso makers since I started using them in 2004. Unfortunately, from my own experience at least, it's hard to predict which one will work well. The first I had which I bought in Spain worked great until the gasket wore out and the hand broke. I've never found one that worked so well, but I've managed.

This one appears to have the same design as others I've used, but for some reason is very slow to brew and sometimes requires that I hit it on the stove a bit. It's like the grind blocks the filter and prevents the brew from getting through or something. I'm learning to get the grind just right so this doesn't happen, and not to overpack it, but this is unfortunate because the best espresso is with finely ground coffee packed well in the basket... The first 1/3 or so that comes out is like true espresso, but the rest is like watered down coffee, the combination of which results in something akin to an Americano, if not a bit stronger.

Overally I've been able to make this work but am considering getting a second, more expensive one with the hopes it makes a better espresso without the unpredictability.

I bought this expresso maker 8 months ago and although it makes a good cup of coffee, it has very quickly fallen apart. The plastic handle is not made to be anywhere near a stove fire and it has melted with use. The lid no longer closes down all the way, spilling coffee all over the stove as it percolates. Lid was also slightly askew when it came, but at least it closed. I will be buying a new expresso maker but not this brand.

Lacks quality, then again, $20 doesn't buy quality anymore.
Going to splurge a bit and go Italian made next time.

The Cuisinox 6 cup is a very good piece of kitchen equipment. It makes espresso that puts any chain's to shame, it's inexpensive yet well made and it will make your kitchen smell amazing when you make coffee.

My fault, but I dropped it twice and it broke.
