So I'm a tea drinker, but sometimes I like a little coffee, to drink or to cook with. I got a 6-cup Moka pot recently (the Bialetti Moka Express) which is still sitting in its box. I know that the 6 cups are more like 6 espresso shots of coffee, but for times when I just need a couple of shots (for baking or whatever), is is possible to make a smaller amount of coffee in the same pot? If so, any tips as to quantities/ proportions? Eg, would I reduce both the water and the coffee, or just the water?
While I like good coffee, I'm not such an afficionado that I'd care immensely if there is a small drop in quality, and I imagine it matters less for most desserts anyway. A substantial drop in quality would be a more serious problem.
Any other tips for a n00b who is a little intimidated by the Moka pot?
