A traditional Italian home coffee maker, the stovetop uses steam pressure to create a strong brew similar to espresso.
Did you know our Founder, Dean Merlo, makes his first coffee of the day each morning using a stovetop and our Espresso blend coffee?
- Fresh ground coffee
- Gas or electric stove (not suitable for induction)
Pour filtered water into the base of the stovetop so it sits just below the pressure release valve. Super important – do not overfill your stovetop or it can explode!
Fill the basket to the top with ground coffee. Level off the top, so the coffee is even.
Place the filter basket in the bottom chamber, then attach the top section.
Place your stovetop on a gas or electric stove on a medium heat setting.
Remove your stovetop from heat when the top chamber begins to splutter.
Warm your cups with hot water and pour the coffee straight away.
Remember, when making coffee at home:
- Fresh is best when it comes to coffee – we recommend buying your coffee in smaller quantities, more frequently.
- We custom-grind for all brewing methods – just tell our staff how you make your coffee at home, or select your brewing method when you order online.
- Use filtered water where possible.
- Water should always be hot but not boiling, as boiling water will burn the coffee grounds. Aim for 92°c.
