Building on the success of its daddy the Bialetti Moka Express, the Bialetti Venus is a new version. Answering concerns about cleanliness and problems of using Aluminium as a material, the Venus is circular rather than the traditional octagon shape Moka.


The original stove top espresso was invented by Luigi De Ponti,, or alongside Alfonso Bialetti. Either way, Bialetti acquired the patent of the Moka Express coffeemaker. Designed in 1933, the coffee pot has been a style icon since the 1950s.  Now, this pot is the source of nostalgia and affection for many coffee lovers the world over and is an essential and fashionable part of almost every coffee lovers kitchenWhile many variations of the Moka have been developed, the Moka Express is a time-honoured classic.

Bialetti Venus Express

The Bialetti Venus Express like the Moka is a simple coffee maker that requires a heat source, to make great coffee. With a little bit of setup you can enjoy a stove top espresso in minutes. Like the Moka Express, the Venus comes in various sizes. Each is rated per cup, which is typically around 40g of coffee. So a 1 cup makes 40g of coffee, 2 cup 80g etc.

While there is a full range available we only offer the 2, 4 and 6 cup, as they are the most practical. Our favourite is the 4 cup.

How to use

You can use our recommended as in the Moka Express page, or as per Bialetti which is:

  • Fill the lower chamber with cold water just below the valve.
  • Insert the funnel and fill it with ground espresso (do not tamp). Remove any coffee grounds on the edge of the funnel
  • Tightly screw the upper part of the pot on to the base. Avoid using the handle for leverage.
  • Select burner size to fit the bottom of the pot. For gas stove-top, make sure the flame is not larger than the bottom of the pot. The flame should not come around the sides of the pot.
  • Place the pot on the stove-top until the water boils and coffee begins to come out of the centre post. There will be a gurgling sound during this process.
  • When the top of the pot is full of coffee, remove from stove. Hazel brown foam appears just seconds before the coffee is completely done.
  • Before pouring coffee, stir it in the upper chamber with a small spoon to equalise all the different coffee layers for optimum flavour.

Note about size

Venus mocha pots (or espresso pots) measure each cup as an espresso size of 40ml.

If you like a mug of coffee then 40ml diluted with 100ml of water is a medium-strength coffee. For a standard mug, that is normally at least 330ml then you should at least 80ml unless it will be weak.
