Sunday Moka Pot

A long stretch of morning means the Moka Pot comes out and we get crafty with dark, viscous coffee and steamed whole milk. There are a lot of opinions on how best to brew, but we generally follow the same steps outlined here, with good results.

The few moments of uncertainty in the water-heating waiting time are replaced with the warmth of success when the coffee bubbles up. Not unlike the glow that comes when the dough does rise, or the liquid cream turns whipped, or when you reach the perfect temperature and golden brown on the second pancake poured from homemade batter.
