I’ll stick with my Moka pot, thank you

If it hadn’t been for a post that I saw on Instagram last night, I’d never have known that Bialetti, the maker of the famous Moka coffee pot, was seeing a drop in sales. An italian online article dated back in October confirmed this; the cause being placed on the rising popularity of those pod capsules.

We have 4 Moka pots: 1 tazza (Italian coffee cup size), 3 tazze, 4 tazze, and a 2 tazze electric Moka that we always take with us when traveling outside of Italy. I can’t imagine the Moka going out of style and I’d really hate to see Bialetti closing its doors in the future. Still, I suppose coffee could eventually have a different look, and when I saw this on the news this morning, I couldn’t help but wonder what people are thinking these days.

A coffee alarm clock. Seriously? It looks like the perfect gift for a chemist, but I thought I heard a $400-something price tag. Ouch. All so that you can wake up within arm’s reach of a fresh brew. Wow.

    I still have mine too, will have to start using it more. I heard a lot of people have stopped drinking coffee, something I don’t think I could do. Hoping Bialetti won’t stop making this line.

      I have been drinking much less for awhile now, like only 1 Italian cup (with caff) a week and any time else only decaf. BP can’t handle it anymore.
