Making coffee with Moka pots, which are metal pots used to brew coffee on a stove, using steam pressure to force heated water up through ground coffee into an upper chamber.

A moka pot is a metal pot used to brew coffee on a stove. It was invented in 1933 by Luigi De Ponti for Alfonso Bialetti, a company in Italy.

Water is heated in the lower chamber, and steam pressure forces the hot water up through the grounds, and into the upper chamber.
