Moka Pots stainless or Aluminium

Recommended Posts

Hi, experimenting with these stove top pots/moka pots. Seems the jury is out on what type is best. Aluminium or stainless steel. Some say Aluminium is not good for food prep and leaves a metalic taste to brewed coffee. 

Any views on this?

I’ve used Bialettis in both materials over a number of years, and now stick quite firmly to only using the stainless steel ones as they are so much easier to keep looking clean and fresh. The aluminium ones do seem to impart a bit of an off taste for a couple of brews if they have been left unused for a while.
