Hi All,

Does anyone know where I can buy replacement gaskets for my Moka Pot?

(I would like to know of any stores that are toward the North Vancouver side of BC)

Thanks in advance

What is everyones view on making your own with clear 100% silicone caulk?

Hi Baba,

Welcome to the Coffeegeek Forums! {;-)

You should be able to buy these even in a large grocery chain store. Where I live, they have them at Fortinos.

Hey Len,
IMO that would be the wrong type of material as it's much to soft (durometer {hardness}).

They're basically a rubber gasket, nothing special..

Thanks guys.

Before posting I had already been to Super Store, Save-on-Foods, Canadian Tire, and BedBath&Beyond. Since posting, I have also been to Home Depot, Whole Food Market, and Home Sense. None of these stores have them; and unfortunately we don't have Fortinos in Vancouver.

The trend I find in Vancouver, is that the general public belongs to 3 groups. Those who believe in drip-coffee and Tim Hortons. Those who believe in StarBucks or similar chains. And those who are ex-Starbuckers who now go to Artigiannos and have an automatic machine at home. And then there is the rest of us. In general, every single person I have asked about a Moka pot do not have a clue what I am talking about. If I explain that it is a stove-top coffee maker, they kind of think of a percolator. I did find one person who understood what I was talking about after a little education, and his answer was... "There is no way you'll be able to find one of those in Vancouver".

So.... just in case there are any in Vancouver, I would be truly grateful to hear from anyone who actually lives in Vancouver. :-)

Thanks again guys
I'm just really keen to start having some coffee at home again :-) :-) :-)

Bosa Foods, a speciality Italian store in Vancouver, sells replacement parts for Moka Pot among other things.

Thankyou SRID. Awesome advice.

Do you by chance know which is the larger of the 2 stores? Victoria Drive or Kootenay Street?

Baba, you're welcome. I have only been to the Kootenay Street store; you might want to directly call the stores and ask. If you happen to visit both the stores somehow, do let me know which one you find most suited!

The Kootenay store is way bigger.  The Victoria store is the original and has a lot more charm.  Both have gaskets, the last time I looked.
