Primula Stovetop Espresso Maker is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine This is the quickest, dastest, and most fool proof method of making coffee. Faster than my drip machine, and easier than my french press, works great whether it's pretty or fresh ground beans. Love this little thing, it never leaves my stove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So in love.... I mentioned to my mom I wanted this for Christmas. She said: "I gave one you can use!" It's this exact one - not sure if she got it at Target or elsewhere but it's identical. She's had it for years and years and it's well loved. I have Cuban coffee grounds and wanted to see if the taste was different using this vs my drip pot on the counter. WHOA!!! So much richer in this stovetop pot. Hotter. Tastier. 1. Unscrew bottom off of top. 2. Remove basket. 3. Fill bottom with water. I don't measure but leave a little room at the top. 4. Put basket back in and fill directly with coffee grounds (or tea grounds). I used one level scoop of coffee grounds. 5. Screw top back on securely. 6. Place on stove and turn stove on. STAY THERE WITH IT!!! As soon as you hear it boiling, (showing steam coming from the spout opening), turn off stove and remove from eye if you have electric stove. Leave alone if you have a gas stove. Give it a minute to perk the coffee. Enjoy. * I was curious how it perked so I opened the lid using a towel and put a jacket on to protect my arm. I wasn't sure if it would "spit out" the hot water/coffee or trickle. And I didn't want a steam burn either! It was a fast trickle. Steam was present. BE CAREFUL!!! Use caution. Did I mention TO STSY WITH THIS UNIT AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON YOUR STOVE?? It's a pretty quick process once that water heats up. If you like cream/milk in your coffee, try this: half way fill up a microwave safe mug of milk, half n half, whatever use use (just nit the powdered creamer stuff). Standing at the microwave and KEEPING AN EYE ON IT SO YOU DO NOT HAVE A BOIL-OVER, heat up the milk until you see it foam toward the top. Take it out and using a wire whisk, whisk it up so it foams. Put mug back in microwave, heat up a few more seconds watching it. Remove and whisk up Shaun. Then pour into your amazing cup of coffee you prepared. If my mom doesn't let me keep this one, I'll be buying this one from Target. No funny taste. Easy to use. Easy to clean. I hand wash it and let dry. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Now to go clean my house, sweep out the garage, do four loads of laundry plus ironing, give the neighborhood dog a bath, chop some wood, then hopefully come down from my Cuban coffee caffeine rush. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality! The handle started melting during the first use! It completely fell off after a few more uses. Garbage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make Espresso like a REAL Italian Every home in Italy has at least one of these and they are called "mocha pots" over there. Unscrew the top from base and remove the inner filter basket, add water, drop the filter back in, add ground espresso to the filter and tamp it down a bit, screw top on and place on the stove. Fresh espresso with "creme" light foam in about 3 minutes. This is the larger size to prepare 4 shots/small demitasse cups. The smaller size pot is more useful for individual use but currently not offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only 6 espresso cups in capacity I really like these moka pots. I just want to note that the listing here is inaccurate. I haven't measured this specific unit's volume, but I can tell you by looking at it that it does not hold 48 oz (that's 6 Cups at 8 oz per Cup). Other "6 cup" moka pots are about 12 oz. It is common with coffee makers to use some weird unit and call it a "cup" (lowercase), but this product overview goes beyond that. It states "Capacity (volume): 6.0 Cup" which has such a level of specificity that is misleading.
