Posted Fri Jun 29, 2012, 12:47am Subject: Illy Moka blend - too fine? *Photo update
Does anyone use/like/have experience with Illy's Moka grind? I bought it recently and I'm finding coffee grounds in the bottom chamber of my moka pot. I've played around with the heat settings, and medium heat produces a really nice cup of coffee, but leaves grounds in the water chamber. Higher heat leaves no grounds in the water, but makes the final 10 seconds of brewing really violent. I can't seem to figure out this grind! It's finer than other store-bought espresso grinds, and I'm wondering if it's too fine? Sounds crazy considering Illy grinds it specially for moka pots, but so far other espresso brands have worked better for me. Any insight?
