The moka make really good coffee…if you use it properly!
And remember: as more as you use it, as more it will make a good coffee. If you use it only ones in a while, it will never end up making good coffee for some reason…
And also, only slightly rinse it with water after use, don't wash it, don't use soap on it.

Step 1: HOW IS MADE
This is how to use a moka. The moka is made by 3 part: a bottom one, where you put the water, a filter, and a top part, where the coffee ends up.
Step 2: PUT THE WATER
Put the water in the bottom part, until the mark in the inside part.
If there is no mark, put it all the way up to the middle of the valve. NEVER UPPER.
Step 3: PLACE THE FILTER
Place the filter on.
Step 4: PUT THE COFFE GROUND
Put the coffee. It should be a really thin grounded coffee.
Level it flat. NEVER PRESS IT. Or your coffee will end up tasting weird!
Step 5: PLACE THE TOP
Screw on the top.
Step 6: PLACE IT ON THE STOVE
Place the moka on the stove, on a medium-low heat.
Step 7: WAIT
The coffee will start to come out.
Turn off the stove under the moka when it start making a bubbly noise, just right before the whole coffee come out.
Step 8: STEAR
The first coffee that come out is way more strong than the last part, that is more watery. So give i a little stir before serving.
Step 9: OR...
Or just put it a bit in every cups.
Than add the rest, so the coffee will all be mixed well.
Step 10: CHANGING THE SEAL
Sometimes you have to replace the seal.
Remove it from the moka with a knife, give a clean to the filter, put it back on (look at the right direction in the photo), and put back the new seal.
Step 11: ENJOY
Enjoy your moka coffee!
