Bialetti Coffee Makers

Bialetti (not Bialleti or Bialetti, which many people misspell) is an Italian firm that holds a privileged position in the competition of domestic coffee machines, thanks mainly to its dominance in the Italian coffee makers sector.

It is a pioneering company with a long history, whose coffee machines only perfect and refines the essence of an ancient and simple extraction method. A Bialetti coffee maker is synonymous with quality and prestige in this industry.

The wide variety of Bialetti Moka coffee machines allows you to find models of all sizes, colours and functions. It makes it possible for the Italian company to reach all kinds of people: young, veteran, demanding, etc.

And consequently, it is not strange to see Bialetti coffee makers at the top of the sales list worldwide and mainly in Europe and Latin America (where Italian espresso machines are more popular).

On this page, we will briefly describe the particular characteristics of each Bialetti coffee maker, and if possible, we will also try to outline the differences between them.

Buying a Bialetti coffee machine: Prices and history

Talking about a Bialetti coffee maker is synonymous with the Italian coffee maker or Moka maker, the ones you’ve been using all your life. There is no other company with a greater quantity and variety of Italian coffee makers of all kinds, colours and prices.

Bialetti offers us some of the most classic and best-selling Italian coffee makers in history, such as the Moka Express or the Brikka Elite; modern and elegant designs such as the Dama, the Musa or the Venus, electric coffee makers such as the Easy Timer or the Elektrika. You can appreciate the special and careful attention to detail in all of them, and the Bialetti logo appears on handles, finishes, and edges.

It is not in vain that the Italian coffee machine or Moka (as we know it today) was first patented in 1933 for Alfonso Bialetti by Luigi De Ponti. Today, the Bialetti firm continues to manufacture and sell this same model, almost without modification, under the name of Moka Express.

Here is a complete sample of their current catalogue on sale at Amazon:

If you have an Italian Bialetti coffee maker at home (or are thinking of buying one), you will surely be interested in reading the following material:

Where to buy a Bialetti coffee maker?

We usually recommend Amazon because it is where the best offers are and where they have all the Bialetti models in stock.

However, many users still prefer to go to a physical store to “see and touch” their coffee maker before taking it home. In this case, you are also lucky, because there are many Bialetti shops in the big cities. Mainly in large shopping centres and on surfaces.

So you know, if you don’t like to buy online much, you don’t have an excuse either. Bialetti makes it very easy for you!

Comparison of Bialetti coffee makers

In this section, we will compare Bialetti coffee makers; you can quickly see the basic features of each model and easily access their file (review on our website) or their Amazon purchase page.

The Reference: the legendary Moka Express

If there’s one coffee maker that perfectly defines all Bialetti’s values, it’s the Moka Express. As we mentioned earlier, it’s the original Moka coffee maker, practically unchanged since its patenting in the first third of the 20th century. Reliable, long-lasting, economical, with a great brand behind it, what more could you ask for? A classic among classics.

Bialetti Mukka 6989: The casual look

Despite being a brand with classicism and essence at its core, Bialetti does not renounce offering more casual or colourful models to meet the demands of a younger public or those with other aspirations.

Proof of this is the popular and curious Mukka model (not to be confused with the Moka Express), which responds to the Bialetti 6989 nomenclature and imitates a cow’s design in its lines and colours. A coffee machine in the shape of a cow? Yes, you read that right. With its little spots and everything:

Bialetti Venus

The Venus is one of the best-selling Bialetti coffee machines because it is widely distributed (one of the models you can find in any shop), and the design is quite clean. The Bialetti Venus coffee machine comes in almost all sizes and is stainless steel.

Bialetti Orzo Express

The Bialetti Orzo Express is a Moka that is not used to make coffee but to make barley infusions and similar. It is one of the few barley espresso machines on the market. Its characteristic yellow colour gives it away.

Bialetti Moka Crystal

This model is another recent model, and its main characteristic is indicated by its name: the upper part is made of glass, which allows us to see how the coffee rises in real-time. The Bialetti Moka Crystal has long since been discontinued and is now hard to find.

Bialetti Moka Induction

If you want to buy a Bialetti induction coffee maker, this is the simplest and most popular option on the market. It was one of the first to appear on the market and is currently available in various sizes and colours (generally red, beige, black and silver).

Bialetti Kitty

This model is an old Bialetti coffee machine, which has been in the catalogue for a long time. It stands out for its stainless steel design and its characteristic rounded, almost spherical boiler. It is completely smooth and has a very elegant design. Also available is the Bialetti Black Kitty, lacquered in black.

Bialetti Kremina

This model was formerly called Bialetti Moka Crem. It has changed its name, but the design is the same. It is silver and black, and the whole body is made of aluminium.

Bialetti Junior

It is a fairly basic aluminium Moka whose greatest virtue is its low price and the fact that it is made in all industry-standard sizes: it comes in versions from 1 to 12 cups.

Bialetti Rainbow

The Rainbow Moka is made of aluminium. It has a very traditional design with a smooth top (no edges), and logically, its distinctive feature is the wide variety of colours in which it can be found. It is a basic range coffee maker, but a price that is a little inflated by its aesthetics and originality.

Bialetti Alpina

The most Italian coffee machine in the entire Bialetti catalogue: a Moka with handles and knobs made of Grilamid (a special heat-resistant insulating material) and a distinct alpine green lacquer finish. But what we like most about the Bialetti Moka Alpina is the lid, which imitates the characteristic Alpine cap with its little feather and all.

Bialetti Morenita

Very similar to the Bialetti Junior, with classic design and colours and cast aluminium. In our opinion, there are better options in this brand’s catalogue. It is not suitable for induction hobs unless you use an induction adapter specific to the diameter of your hob.

Bialetti Melody: Football Team Coffee Makers

And to make a homeland (which is not to say), Bialetti launched several models of Italian coffee machines decorated with the colours and coats of arms of the most popular football teams in the Transalpine country, such as Roma, AC Milan, Inter, Napoli and Juventus. All these football coffee machines can make 3 cups of espresso and are sold under the generic name of Bialetti Melody:

Bialetti Brikka

Also known as the Bialetti New Brikka. Another of the company’s legendary models has been on the market for many years. The lower body of the Brikka Moka is smooth and black.

Bialetti Fiammetta

This coffee maker is an Italian coffee maker that stands out for its peculiar aesthetics: it has the shape of a flame (hence its name) on both the handle and the knob. And all its models are very brightly coloured. The only drawback is that it is aluminium, not stainless steel.

Bialetti Dama Elite

The Italian Bialetti Dama coffee machine is made of aluminium, not suitable for induction, and the design maintains the classic lines characteristic of the transalpine brand. The lower body is almost entirely smooth and is only marketed with the traditional metallic finish.

Bialetti’s electric coffee machines

Most Bialetti coffee machines are manually operated, but the Italians also have two models on the market that can be connected to electric bass. These are the Elektrika (its name indicates it) and the Easy Timer.

The first is a Moka coffee maker with a conventional electric base (it is unnecessary to put it on the kitchen stove and attach it to a base connected to the electricity grid). The second also has a timer that allows us to program it to activate at the most convenient time, up to 24 hours in advance.

A Bialetti Italian electric coffee machine can set you back between £40 and £80, brand new, and their two main references are these:

Bialetti Easy Timer

One of the famous Bialetti electric coffee machines, with a timer that allows us to program the coffee for the time that suits us best. Available in various sizes. Also known as Bialetti Moka Timer.

Bialetti Elektrika

Another well-known Bialetti electric coffee machine differs from the Easy Timer in that it does not have a timer. Therefore, the Elektrika is cheaper, although it is up to each individual to decide whether the price difference is worth it or not.

Bialetti’s most elegant designs

Although it is a long-lived and pioneering brand, Bialetti has also known how to update the designs of its Italian coffee machines to adapt to new times and the most refined tastes of its consumers. Proof of this are models with beautiful and elegant lines such as the Kitty, theVenus, the Dama or the suggestive Bialetti Musa.

Stainless steel, polished surface and absence of edges are the common denominators of Bialetti’s most exquisite line of coffee machines. Moreover, this whole block of coffee machines is made of 18/10 stainless steel can be used on induction cookers without any problem.

Red Bialetti coffee machines

There are 4 Bialetti models available in many colours: the Mini Express, the Fiammetta, the Rainbow and the Moka Induction. Of course, any of these are available in red (and many other shades).

Bialetti stainless steel coffee machines

The fundamental difference between stainless steel and an aluminium Moka coffee machine is that the steel ones are of higher quality, more durable, and are suitable for induction.

If you are looking to buy a Bialetti stainless steel coffee machine, you are interested in some of these features. We have already summarised them all for you, so in this section, we are simply going to include a summary of the Bialetti stainless steel Italian coffee machine models:

  • Venus.
  • Kitty.
  • Divina.
  • Musa.
  • Moka Induction.
  • Mini Express.

Do you like cream?

Moka Crém and Brikka Elite are Bialetti’s two options for those who love that thin layer of cream or foam on top of their espressos. The first one offers a more traditional mechanism. The second one automatically makes the layer of cream, letting the air from the outside go into the Moka and blowing it into the coffee thanks to an exclusive double valve system.

Both coffee machines are ideal for those who want their espressos to be more like an espresso machine.

Bialetti’s colourful line also includes two models: the Dama and the Fiammetta. Both come in a wide variety of colours, ranging from fiery red to green, blue, gold and Violetta. If you are looking for style or decoration, as well as functionality, you will love either of these two Bialetti coffee machines:

Bialetti 5722 Espresso Maker, Blue

Both are available in different sizes and colours, all of which are bright and cheerful. As you can see, the design of both is very similar.

The Dama (pictured below) retains the traditional octagonal shape of Italian coffee machines, while the Fiammetta (pictured above) is characterised completely rounded upper body with no edges.

Finally, we must mention the Break, a Moka with traditional lines, which also comes in various bold colours.

The common feature of all these coffee machines is their small size: just 300 ml at best.

A foray into espresso machines: Mokona

This article on Bialetti is inevitably almost a monograph focused on Italian coffee machines. However, the Italian company also has a well-known model of manual espresso machine: the Bialetti CF40 or Bialetti Mokona.

And of course, despite being an espresso machine, the Mokona has a design that pays homage to and reminds us of the conventional lines of an Italian coffee machine. The memories of the authentic essence of the Bialetti brand are constant in all its products!

This espresso machine, named Mokona, is characterised by its quirky design, its large capacity (1.5 litters), and its effortless control thanks to its only three buttons or operating switches. For more information, read their review on our website.

Bialetti capsule coffee machines

Unfortunately, Bialetti capsule coffee machines are very difficult to find on the market and are often discontinued on Amazon. Their quality is unquestionable, but they have the disadvantage that their capsule system is closed and exclusive. There are no compatible pods of the most popular formats, limiting their diffusion.

Bialetti Opera

This is the only Bialetti capsule coffee machine still on sale in the last year. It is available in several colours and stands out for its fairly low price, around £50. Otherwise, a very basic single-dose machine with no out-of-the-ordinary features, although it is quite compact in size and easy to place anywhere.

Bialetti Smart

The previous model to the Opera with very similar body and features. It has 20 bar pressure, 0.6-litre capacity, and of course, only works with Bialetti format capsules.

Bialetti Diva CF70

When pouring the coffee, a Bialetti capsule coffee machine with a 0.6-litre tank and a modern illumination system in the cup. One of those eye-catching features, but which does not affect or change the brewing process (which matters in the end).

Bialetti Cuore

If you’re looking for a coffee machine to give as a Valentine’s Day gift, this is the one for you. The heart-shaped coffee maker is the only outstanding feature of this model, which behaves the same as others.

Bialetti Tazzissima

If the previous one was heart-shaped, this one is cup-shaped. But it has the same drawback as the Cuore: its price was rather inflated for the features it offered. It is now discontinued. The most notable feature is its capacity to make two cups of espresso simultaneously.

Bialetti French coffee machines

This company is known for being the inventors of the Italian Moka coffee machine, but this does not mean that it does not market other types of products. Bialetti’s plunger coffee machines, or French presses, are also well known within the coffee industry.

Models such as the Bialetti Preziosa or the Bialetti Trendy are in the medium-high range of their sector thanks to a very careful design and not skimping on the quality of the materials. You will certainly find cheaper piston coffee machines, but it will be more difficult with this prestige.

Bialetti milk frothers

This brand is a champion of the Italian espresso tradition, and in the field of milk frothers, it could not be any less so. Tradition has led them to focus on manual milk frothers, and among all of them, there is a standout piece: the Bialetti Tutto Crema. A cutting-edge milk whisk is available in two sizes (0.3 and 0.6 litres).

Bialetti’s electric milk frothers are not as well known as the latter and are hard to find on the market.

Sale
Bialetti Glass Milk Frother, Black
Bialetti Glass Milk Frother, Black
Total capacity: 1 liter. Usable capacity: 330 ml.

Bialetti coffee machines with frother

As we have seen in the previous section, you can buy the frother separately because Italian coffee machines, by definition, do not have a built-in milk frother, at least, what we know as a traditional emulsifier.

However, a model of Italian Moka produced more foam than usual in this method: the Bialetti Moka Crem, now discontinued, of which we have already spoken briefly before.

It is not a Bialetti coffee maker with a frothing machine, but it is the closest thing to it. Its system was based on the fact that if the user poured less water than the norm in espresso, the Moka could create a soft layer of foam on top of the espresso. It also had a transparent lid to check when the crema was ready.

Spare parts for Bialetti coffee machines

If you are looking for spare parts for your Bialetti coffee machine, you will usually need either Bialetti filters or Bialetti rubber gaskets.

Filters for Bialetti coffee machines are not purchased separately but usually come as a set of 3 rubber gaskets and a filter for a certain size or model of a coffee machine. In the following list, you can see some of them, but you can find many more on Amazon.

When buying your Bialetti coffee machine refills, you need to look at the size of the Moka you have at home (4 cups, 6 cups, 10 cups) as the diameter of the refill you buy should be the same. In most cases, each Bialetti refill comes with a list of compatible coffee machine models, although it will usually fit any Moka that is the same size (even if it is not on the list).

Can I put my Bialetti coffee machine in the dishwasher?

Generally speaking, yes, you can always put them in the dishwasher, and in fact, many manufacturers say so. However, in a dishwasher, it is not advisable to wash your Italian coffee machine (of any brand, but especially if it is a quality piece of equipment such as a Bialetti Moka coffee machine).

The reason is that they can be dented, damaged, scratched or darkened by detergents.

Ideally, as we explain in this article, you should wash your Bialetti coffee machine by hand, separating all its components, and above all, dry it immediately with a dry cloth or cloth.
