We love a cup of siphoned third-wave as much as the next coffee drinker. But some mornings (or afternoons, or evenings) you can’t beat the original stove-top.

Invented in the ’30s by an Italian metalworker named Alfonso Bialetti, the old Moka pot was devised as an easy way to bring the espresso machine into the kitchen. Flash forward some 85-odd years and the stove-top is one of the most popular brewing methods in Italy.

Thanks to the kind, caffeinated folk at Bialetti we have some coffee-making kits to give away. Each includes a Bialetti Moka Express and a bag of ground dc coffee. (You have to provide your own stove.)

To enter, email us with your name, address and choice of Brazilian (mild and caramel-y) or Ethiopian (medium and chocolate-y) beans.
