OUR RECIPE FOR MOKA
- Fill the boiler halfway up the valve and weigh the poured water content.
- Weigh the quantity of coffee to insert into the filter respecting the ratio of 1:14 between coffee/water. For example, if you put 112 g of water in the boiler you will have to put 8 g of ground coffee in the filter.
- Level without tamping the coffee
- Screw the boiler to the rest of the coffee maker and place on the heat at medium power.
- Reduce the flame/power slightly as soon as the coffee starts to come out of the chimney.
- Turn off the heat source halfway through extraction so as not to "burn" the final part of the drink.
- Stir before serving.
- Use low mineral content or filtered water with low fixed residue, the drink will be sweeter and more aromatic.
- Use water at room temperature. Preheated water should not be used.
- If possible, choose a specialty coffee whether you want a coffee with a classic taste or whether you are looking for more particular flavors.
- The best thing would be to freshly grind the coffee. Alternatively, you could often visit your local roaster to purchase small quantities of freshly ground coffee. Our advice is to buy coffee beans and have a manual coffee grinder.
- Make sure the grind is suitable for the Moka, it is very important.

Vamay Coffee was born from the vision of Dona Mayra, who, thanks to her passion and attention to social and environmental well-being, manages to produce extremely high quality coffee. Nestled between 1800 and 2100 meters above sea level, the Alto el Vapor Farm extends over 90% of a protected area, where irrigation systems help provide water to the community of Santa Marìa de Dota. Citrus fruits, bananas, tubers and vegetables are grown among the coffee plants, promoting biodiversity and protecting this precious ecosystem.
Dona Marya and her daughters also actively collaborate with Bean Voyage , a non-profit association that aims to eliminate gender differences in farming communities. Sustainability and social justice are also essential for Falcon, which participates in the initiative by supporting more than one hundred women coffee producers, through discussion groups and training programs. Bean voyage has facilitated access to the market for micro-lots of coffee, increasing the average earnings of producing families by 300%, guaranteeing fair prices and contributing to improving the quality of agricultural products.
