Collar Espresso Maker
Dimensions: diameter 11 x 17.5cm high | 0.25L
The Italian design duo Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri have created an exciting range of products for the Collar collection launched in 2016.
The classic, Italian cooktop espresso maker, also known as a “Moka Pot”, is the utmost tool for creating a professional, full-bodied brew at home. Collar has a perfect silhouette with the Scandinavian design aesthetics.
Stainless steel coated with Teflon ® and rubber wood handle
Do not boil dry. Not suitable for induction stoves. Note: If using a gas cooktop make sure the flame does not extend up the side of the pot.
Fill the base with water to just below the safety valve (max 0.24 L).
Insert the funnel filter.
Loosely fill the funnel filter with finely ground espresso coffee, without overfilling or tamping. Smooth it over with a spoon or finger and wipe any coffee grounds off the lip.
Note: It is also possible to brew half of the max. volume by using the enclosed additional filter plate. Fill the base with 0.12 L water and spoon in ground coffee to the middle of the funnel filter and put the loose additional filter plate on top.
Check that the rubber gasket and filter plate are properly in place underneath the top section. Screw the top section firmly onto the base.
Place the espresso maker on low to medium heat, keeping the handle outside the heating hob. The coffee will then rise into the top section.
Note: If using a gas cooktop make sure the flame does not extend up the side of the pot.
Listen carefully—when the espresso maker starts a gurgling sound, take it off the heat and wait for the noise to stop.
Carefully open the lid, stir the espresso with a spoon and then it is ready to serve.
The brewing takes 4–6 minutes, depending on the intensity of heat.
The Collar espresso maker serves 0.24 L.
