Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker

3 Answers

Barely any coffee rises to upper chamber after cooking

When I first bought it, it worked just fine even though I noticed that not all the coffee was brewed to the upper chamber.. There was always some coffee water still left in the bottom chamber when I would clean it. Then one day it started working great, where it would use all the water I put in it and make a full to the tippy-top cup of delicious coffee. I tend to grind the coffee not as fine as espresso but finer than a drip coffee maker. Now the bialetti only brings up two tablespoons of burnt coffee after it has been trying to brew on even temperature for 20 minutes. And I even put in a new gasket used the same ground coffee and it seemed to make it even worse (only 1 tablespoon of burnt coffee). Hope you can suggest something more to the juggular of the problem. Thank you. M Vekkos

It's the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.

Try replacing the funnel cup [the one you put the coffee in] as well as the gasket [Amazon UK sell them for less that £2!].

I've just suffered the same but changing the funnel cup worked first time!

Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

Check the coffee dregs are they wet? Or are they even there?
If there are no dregs then the grinder chamber is clogged and needs to be cleared out, remove the brew unit and you can gain access to the chamber on the left. Clean the chamber.

Mazzer luigi super jolly


Easiest way to set the grind on the super jolly is to remove the beans, turn towards fine until you can barely move the middle stem in the grind chamber, then turn towards course about 12-14 notches on the grinding adjuster(not numbers but notches between numbers). If you still cannot get a fine grind and it is not a brand new grinder replace burrs.
