  • STEP ONE

Fill your moka pot with warm water until just up to the steam release valve.

  • STEP TWO

Fill your moka pot funnel filter to the top with ground Starbucks® Espresso Roast. Lightly press the coffee and then level it out to ensure an even distribution.

  • STEP THREE

Put the top chamber on the moka pot, ensure that it's twisted on tight, and then put the pot on a stove-top burner at medium-high heat.
