I have a Bialetti Moka Express and would like to try orzo/barley coffee.

I know they sell an orzo express model, but was wondering if I can just use my moka pot

  • You should remove the "espresso" tag. Moka pot does not produce espresso, not even close.

  • With coffee moka, you have to fill the funnel with barley only for one half;
  • Otherwise, you can use the barley model, named as Orzo Express, they have the funnel shorter and you can fill entirely without problems.

Using a moka for coffee, and a different one for barley coffee, is a good practice, otherwise the taste of (ground) coffee will be highly altered.
