The Neapolitan coffee maker, also known as Cuccumella, is a typically Italian coffee extraction method, although it was actually invented by a Frenchman almost two centuries ago.

This coffee maker, called is nothing more than the famous Neapolitan Moka, and for those unfamiliar with it is composed of 4 parts:

  • the tank with the handle and a small hole,
  • the container for ground coffee,
  • the metal filter
  • the jug with which the coffee is poured with a handle that fits into the tank

How do you prepare a coffee with Neapolitan mocha?

First, the tank is filled with water (about 250 ml in the 3 cup version), the container is filled with ground coffee with a larger grain size than the Moka pot and the filter is screwed on. At this point, the "server" joins and sets itself on fire. Once the boiling temperature is reached, some steam will come out of the small hole. This means that the time has come to turn the coffee maker upside down and start extraction.

If you prefer a less bitter coffee, you could start the extraction a few seconds before boiling. Better still, it would be to fill the tank with water already at 92 ° -96 ° to limit the contact of the ground coffee with the high temperatures that could burn it.

We at Caffèlab love to define the coffee extracted with the Neapolitan coffee maker as the Italian filter coffee. If you think about it, the water filters through the coffee panel by force of gravity, and the drink is separated from the ground through a metal filter. Compared to the classic Moka, where there is a pressure exerted by the steam during extraction, the result will be less full-bodied but certainly more aromatic.
