What Makes This Moka Pot Special?

There are a few reasons this specific model made it to our list of top 5 moka pots in 2021. Here are the main takeaways: 

  • Easy to Use. BonVIVO took the guesswork out of espresso making with this stovetop moka pot. Simply fill the lower part of this Italian device with water, put some ground coffee in the filter, put the top back on, and bring the water to a boil. 
  • Attractive Design. BonVIVO really hit it out of the park with the classic yet beautiful design. It’s made from durable stainless steel that works just as well as it looks. 
  • Heat Resistant Handle. Our team always looks for safety features within every coffee appliance. The BonVIVO Intenca is designed with a heat-resistant handle for easy pouring. 
  • Suitable for all Stoves. The BonVIVO Intenca Stovetop Espresso Maker works on induction cookers, ceramic glass cooktops, electric cookers, and gas cookers. It’s one of the few moka pots suitable for all stovetops!

It’s also worth mentioning that the stainless steel body conducts heat faster when you compare it to aluminum models. This added conductivity reduces the time necessary to prepare the coffee, which also means you’re cutting back on prep time while receiving a strong-bodied cup of coffee.

Why Should I Buy This Moka Pot?

With the BonVIVO Intenca Stovetop Espresso Maker, you’ll enjoy up to 6 cups of full-bodied coffee. With a standing dimension of 9.2 x 5.4 x 4.4 inches and a weight of 2 pounds, you’ll have no problem transporting or storing this device away.

Let us also say that while there is a learning curve, any beginner can quickly get the hang of the BonVIVO after a few attempts. Practice makes perfect and this definitely applies to this moka pot.

Also, to properly maintain your espresso maker, you want to make sure you clean your moka pot after every use. Sometimes coffee grounds are left in the filter. This may cause your next batch of coffee to taste funny and if left in there too long, discoloration may occur. 

When it comes to cleaning your pot, you can wash it in the dishwasher or by hand. While it is dishwasher safe, we prefer hand washing since it offers a gentler alternative.
