Espresso with a flair
Moka Crém is the only stovetop coffee maker that brews espresso with a soft, “cream-like” froth.
It features a stay-cool lid, handle and knob, and an easy-to-clean valve. The see-through lid allows you to check the consistency of the froth and the special patented double-height funnel guarantees the right amount of water for each use.
Moka Crèm is the only stovetop espresso maker equipped with a special built-in frother that enables you to infuse air into the coffee to create a soft, velvety foam-like froth on top of your espresso.

- Remove all labels and packaging.
- Hand wash all parts with warm water.
- Rinse all parts thoroughly to remove any soap residue.
- Make 2-3 pots of coffee to season the pot. Follow to use instructions below for each cycle.
- Fill the lower chamber with cold water just below the valve.
- Insert the funnel and fill it with ground espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel.
- Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using the handle for leverage.
- Insert the lid locking it to the handle with a clockwise rotation of the black lever to Cream position.
- Select burner size to fit bottom of pot. For gas stovetop, make sure the flame is not larger than bottom of pot. The flame should not come around the sides of the pot.
- After a few minutes, the coffee will gradually start pushing up the frother. When you see the pillar coming up, you can remove the coffee maker from the stove.
- Place the maker on a solid surface. Make sure the lid is in the closed position, hold the maker firmly with one hand and with the other pull and push the Moka Crem system 10 to 20 times with short, fast movements to create a soft cream.
- Open the spout by pushing the lever on the lid to the ÒPourÓ position and pour.
- Wash by hand with warm water.
- Dry thoroughly with towel.
- Do not reassemble the product until all parts are completely dry to avoid oxidation.
- Do not use soap or detergent
- Do not use in dishwasher
- Do not use steel wool or other abrasive products
- Use coffee ground specifically for a moka coffee maker. Don't use too fine ground coffee.
- For more lasting and full-bodied froth, blends with more Robusta coffee should be used.
- Periodically check the funnel, the filter plate and the washer for wear. Over time, they may need to be replaced.
- Never use the pot without water.
- Never use other contents besides coffee like teas, cacao powder or instant coffee as it will clog the filter plate.
- If the heat is too high, coffee may have a burnt taste. Getting the optimum temperature for brewing may take some trial and error.
- Store coffee grounds in airtight container, away from sunlight.
- Use filtered water for best coffee flavor.
