Topic: a whole different style (3 msgs / 86 lines)

If you get the pot so hot that it burns the expressed espresso in 
the top of the unit, you've got the heat turned up way too much!
Just give the thing another minute and you'll get a good product.
A tip to all who are just trying these pots for the first time; try to 
make the best coffee you can from the pot but don't try to imitate 
another style! 
There is a huge temptation to think of these as a cheap way to 
make a shot and they aren't. They are a whole different style and 
should be treated as such.

That's a really good point.  I started liking tofu when I stopped thinking
of it as a meat substitute :-)

This is how vile inventions like tofu baked ziti and tofu shrimp 
cocktail were created.
But at least tofu won't explode during the process of being ruined.
Moka pots have powerful emotional associations for those of us 
who've spent any time in Italian homes. They reflect the tradtional 
values of frugality and excellence that one finds in their kitchens. 
My moka pots remind me every day that great flavors come from 
great ingredients and great technique, and that an expensive 
machine is not required.
