The coffee generated from the Moka pot will never completely get the signature junior express flavor and consistency because it lacks sufficient force during the brewing process.
Features Crusinallo Junior Express
Traditional express machines brew using about nine bars of force, generally applied by an electric pump, while the Moka pot uses stream force to make the coffee.
Far powerful than anything you will get from manual brewing techniques like a pour-over or French press, Moka coffee occupies a fantastic place between the best old regular coffee and crisp espresso.
This is the best, amazingly affordable choice if you are interested in an old-school brewing experience that can generate both a shot and a mugful of robust and bold coffee.

If you do not already have one, this is the best chance to invest in a handy burr grinder for your house coffee set-up.
One of the most relaxing fragrant parts of your house coffee-making experience is grinding your beans just before you include them in your coffee maker.
As an espresso-like brew, Moka pot coffee needs a relatively perfect grind, though you have lots of room for experimenting with a particular size.
Grinding coffee for your Moka pot is precisely the step that people generally trip upon.
Since Moka pot coffee is similar to junior espresso, it is tempting to use quite a perfect grid, where the grinds are about table salt.
