For all those preferring a smoother coffee preference, the Bialetti 6-Cup Venus unites elegance and attractiveness at a designed stovetop espresso maker. Bialetti's legacy of quality and reliability resides on within this coffee maker crafted from high-quality 18/10 stainless steel (such as the inner parts such as filter & funnel plate) with ergonomic, heat-resistant lid and handle. Produces 6 cups of true Italian espresso in only 4-5 minutes. Note that max boiler capacity is more than the final outputsignal. Some water is going to be left after brewing from the boiler. The Venus is compatible with stovetops, including induction cook tops. Stainless steel espresso containers aren't dishwasher safe, hand wash. Never use different contents besides coffee such as teas, cacao powder, instant coffee or fine ground coffee as it'll clog the filter plate. Under the valve; fill the lower chamber with warm water Touse. Insert the funnel and then match it with earth espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel. Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on the bottom. Avoid using the handle for leverage. Select burner size to fit pot's bottom. For gas stovetop, ensure that the flame is not larger than underside of the pot. The flame must not come round this pot's sides. Place pot on the stovetop before water boils and coffee starts to come from the center post. There will be considered a gurgling noise during this process. After the top of the pot is packed with coffee, remove from stove. Brownish foam looks just minutes prior to the coffee is wholly done. Before pouring coffee, stir that at the room with a little spoon to equalize each of the different coffee layers for optimum flavor. Bialetti is the planet's best and Italian coffee organization. Bialetti coffee makers have come to be iconic and has enabled millions of consumers to enjoy great Italian coffee which once was only available in cafes and restaurants. Bialetti's passion remains for making superb coffee simple.
