Use fine grind for espresso, darker roasted bean blend on Italian roast style are better, they are stronger and oily, perfect for expresso machines like this.

One of the best available here is this: Lavazza Qualita Rossa Ground Coffee, great brew on Moka style espresso machines.

    Regarding the coffee quantity, just fill the filter cup up to the edge, without pressing ti to much. Press the coffee softly with a teaspoon, do not press it as much as you do on electric espresso makers.

Good evening! I have received the  Kontessa  Vev Vigano  12 cup from my family  but I don't have an  instruction book with it..  is there a  place where I can download  some simple instructions as to how...


You could use any Bialetti or Vev Vigano instructions created for aluminum pots. I have a 6 cup Vev Vigano Kontessa Inox, but the instructions that came with it were standard. Remember to use correct measurement of water and coffee. Coffee grind should be espresso. I don't know about 12 cup, but assuming that it's double of the 6 cup size, I use 9 oz of water and 6 tablespoons of espresso grind. You could go to www.vev-vigano.com. Their customer service is pretty efficient. Even if you didn't buy your pot from them, they'll reply usually within 24 hours. Good luck.

I need a new funnel for my vev vigano kontessa 6 cup stove top espresso


Usually most stove top espresso makers manufacture these parts to the same standard. Take your old funnel, go to a kitchen store where they sell Bialetti, and compare their funnel size to your funnel size (for the same size put). I noticed that usually, it's the rubber gaskets that may differ slightly. Or you could email customer service of www.vev-vigano.com.

My Vev Vigano Kontessa 12 cup espresso maker does not work properly


I had the same problem, so I embarked on a search mission. Here's what I found, and it worked for me. First, these pots are designed to work only for the amount of water specified for each size. So I have a 6 cup pot that requires 9 oz of water. If I try to put 8 oz. of water, I only get about 1 maybe 2 oz of coffee. Size of the grind doesn't matter as long as you stick to espresso grind (some coffee grinders have several settings for espresso grind). As soon as I put exact amount of water, it works much better. Now, you have to understand that some water gets evaporated as steam, and some water should remain in the boiler section of the pot for safety reason. The general advice is to take the pot off the burner as soon as the gurgling sound reaches its peak and just starts to subside.
That may result (as least for me) in weaker coffee than I like. So what I do, is I fill the coffee funnel with coffee grinds, tamp it very lightly, and then using a wooden skewer I make 3 or 4 holes all the way to the bottom of the funnel. That will help the steam to escape. Before I learned this trick, I thought it was a valve problem or a seal problem. As soon as I tried this trick, bingo! I personally like strong coffee. So I didn't want to compromise it and start adding less coffee to the funnel. The thing is that steam wets and expands coffee grinds, and that may be enough to hinder the process. If you make several holes, steam will not be building in the boiler section and escaping thrgough the valve or break the seal on the gasket.
Hope this helps.
