Moka Pot: All steam, no happy juice =(

mobojobo | Jul 21, 2012 10:08 PM

I have a little moka pot and use Lavazza Crema E Gusto (which, according to the pictures on the package, works for all kinds of coffee including moka pots and espresso machines).

When I put my stove on high, I get coffee (it's a bit tinny and bitter) but anything less (medium or low, like all the directions tell you) all that happens is steam comes out the top until the bottom chamber is completely empty. I've googled this, but apparentlz I'm the only person on the internets to have had this problem.

Please advise - Thank you!
