I've seen folks making espresso with the Bialetti Brikka online, and, as a coffee lover/addict, I wanted to give it a try. It has met all my expectations. Like smoking a pipe, making espresso is a tactile experience - pouring in the cold water, adding and striking off the coffee, tightening the top chamber into position. It can't be rushed, but it doesn't take long. I highly recommend the product and the process. I also picked up a couple of nice Strength Co demitasse cups. All the products were well packed and were delivered quickly.
very good as expdected
Easy to use after a few mistakes on the gas stove. Better than nespresso. Small enough to take on a trip with you.
Never used it. Advertised as made in Italy. It’s designed in Italy but made in Romania. However 5 star to owner for refund.
Unless you are an uber coffee snob and have thousands of $$ to spend on a high end espresso machine this little pot is a great inexpensive alternative. The Brikka makes a nice cup of espresso with crema. My motto is "my coffee is strong and so am I!" The Strength Co and the Brikka are a must have combo, in my humble opinion!
