Moka pots have been around since 1933 when Italian engineer Alfonso Bialetti patented the first-ever traditional octagonal design.
Broadly described as stovetop espresso makers, they work by forcing boiling water upwards through the coffee and into a separate compartment.
Not all require a stove to work, as some electric versions have emerged in recent years that use the same method but can keep the coffee warm without over brewing it.
Moka pots only require water, coffee grounds, and a stovetop or similar heat source to work. Sometimes confused with percolators, they are actually two very individual appliances as percolators work in a slightly different way, and only have two chambers rather than three.
