The moka pot was my staple for several years. Trouble is that it has to be handled carefully, otherwise the coffee starts to boil and then it's rubbish.

A good classic moka pot has bags of Italian style, and yes, if used properly, makes great coffee.

Mind you, when I'm getting up first thing, and my mind is still splintered, brewing the perfect cup is a hit and miss affair, at least until I've got some caffeine in the system to make me dance and sing!
