Studentsville Project Manager, Whitney Richelle, shows you how to make a real Italian espresso in a Moka, the stovetop coffee pot that Italians use at home. If you are renting an apartment in Florence, you’ll probably find one of these neat little machines in your kitchen cupboard. Otherwise, you can buy your own Moka at:

1) Bialetti, the original Moka brand store:

Bialetti
Piazza della Repubblica, 25/r
50123 Firenze
+39 055.2302554
info@bialettigroup.com 

Or, buy a Bialetti Moka online, here.

2) Coop Supermarket

Via Cimabue 47r
50136 Firenze

3) Any “Mesticheria,” little stores that sell household items and hardware.
