My Dad loves this and says it is great. THANK YOU!
I wanted a real Bialetti and knew that Amazon wasn’t a good option due to a lot of fake ones for sale; found Strength Co and got a quick reply. The gentleman I met was super passionate about coffee and really nice. He explained how to use the Brikka and even gave me a bag of coffee to try with it. Overall it’s a way better little pot than my Moka. It does make crema and works great!
I've used a regular Bialetti moka for years. The Brikka took a little getting used to, but I will say I like the coffee it makes better. I found that using the recommended 180ml of water makes the coffee a bit too strong for me, so I went up to 230ml and it's just right. The main difference is that with a moka, you fill the bottom with water just until it reaches the steam valve, so measuring isn't necessary. With the way the Brikka is made, you do have to measure the water since it ends up being well below the steam valve. I really like the way it makes coffee.
Good service vood product
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.
