Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker
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!
