Moka-Pots can make excellent coffee.
the beans , the roast level , and the grind make a difference w the M-P's
of note : as a ' single taster ' , i.e. Me
being my own control , and a home roaster
the selection of beans for my favorite ' drip ' or M-P coffee is very different
than my favorite blend for espresso , using a high end grinder that matches the high end espresso machine.
the Espresso-Blend is also roasted to about 4 - 5 degrees less than for drip.
just into the second crack.
if I switched these two roasts around , and used the ' drip ' roast for espresso , and visa versa
I wouldn't care for rather cup.
Since im my own ' control ' for this experiment , and Ive done it out of curiosity
the bean blend for espresso matters and its not the bean-blend for ' drip '
including different roasting points.
I was a bit surprised when I tried this.
the switch made pretty bad espresso , and awful drip.
Id also suggest that ' true ' turkish coffee can be excellent , but that's a different topic
and a different blend of beans and roasting point and grinding point.
