Water for Moka espresso?

laurendlewis | Aug 5, 2008 06:44 AM

I have not used filtered water for my stovetop Moka espresso maker. And, after reading a lot of background info, I usually just rinse it out and wash with soap every once in awhile.
The water reservoir at the bottom is now sort of icky and the coffee tastes horrible.

Have I ruined it?
If I buy another and am sure to use filtered water, will it go ok?
