First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.

My mukka is shooting steam out of the small valve/washer thing on the bottom pot part. As it gets hots the valve pops up (but not with gusto like it used to do) and then I get a little coffee mixed in with...


I had the same problem and saw this solution in another bialetti mukka problem report, which made sense: "the safety valve on the lower boiler chamber is there to release pressue in case too much prssure builds up in the pot when brewing. If youy have an 11 mm wrench you can take it out and clean it by pulling on the outsidepart, there is a little knob that may be grabbed by a tweezer, gently pull it out, it is spring tensioned, and run water in the opposite end, Chances are some coffee grounds particles got in it and it is not seating good. after cleaning put a few drops of olive oil in it , the inside part. Should seal better and still funtion as a safety valve. Or you can leave it in place in the pot and just pull on the outside , flush with water and then put a few drops of olive oil in it. While you are at it, put olive oul on the threads, olive oil film and the the rubber seal and add a little to the rubber button on the top valve."

I cannot unscrew the top of the Mukka Express machine from the bottom!


If the bottom is screwed too tight on the top, you could try to warm the with hot water and cool the bottom with cold. This could help to expand the top and make it easier to unscrew.

I was looking for instructions for a Bialetti Mukka Express ;and also does this unit make espresso?


Here is the owner's manual. Also, by filling the filter with espresso grounds and using water, you are making espresso. It only becomes cappuccino by adding milk.

Jura capressa F7 steam milk problem


You should decalcify, when you steam the milk some what gets through to the steam and the build up of these minerals causes the issue

My Bialetti mukka expresso maker won t push coffee into the top chamber the pressure valve pops up but the coffee doesn't come out.


hey, it might be congested - this happens sometimes when coffee grounds get stuck in any part after a while - take the whole thing apart, including the gasket and filter and scrub everything out, then do a water run (no coffee) just to clear the thing up.

The problem might also be with coffee ground stuck in the pressure valve nozzle. Run water through it to see if it spurts out to check if there's any obstruction.

To get rid of the stuck ground in the nozzle, i once used a piece of dental floss twisted to reach within the nozzle.

hope this works for you!
