The moka pot is a stove-top or electric coffee maker that brews coffee by passing boiling water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. Named after the Yemenite city of Mocha, it was invented by an Italian engineer named Alfonso Bialetti in 1933. Bialetti Industries continues to produce the same model under the name "Moka Express." Spreading from Italy, the moka pot is today most used in Europe and in Latin America. It has become an iconic design, displayed in modern industrial art and design museums such as the Wolfsonian-FIU, Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper–Hewitt, National Design Museum, the Design Museum, the London Science Museum. Moka pots come from one to eighteen 50 ml servings; the original design and many current models are made from aluminium with Bakelite handles. Moka pots are used over a flame or electric range and are traditionally made of aluminium, though they are sometimes made out of stainless steel or other alloys. "Brikka" is a modified moka pot manufactured by Bialetti.
It incorporates a weighted valve as a pressure regulator on top of the nozzle that allows pressure to build up inside the water tank in a manner similar to a pressure cooker. As pressure builds up more in this method compared to the standard moka pot, it reaches the level required for water to rise through the ground coffee in a shorter time. However, the weighted valve allows pressure to accumulate and temperature to rise somewhat further before the liquid bursts through the nozzle; the result is coffee brewed at a higher pressure and temperature than the standard pot, making it more similar to espresso and therefore with more visible crema. "Mukka Express" is a modified moka pot manufactured by Bialetti that allows milk to be frothed and mixed with the coffee during brewing. The name, "Mukka", is a pun on the Italian for mucca. Bialetti manufactures several stainless steel moka pots, e.g. Musa and Venus. Alessi is an Italian kitchenware manufacturer known for their moka pots. Cuisinox markets several models of moka pots in both aluminium and stainless steel.
The design-oriented Italian kitchenware manufacturer Serafino Zani is known for his moka pots: "Finlandia" designed by Tapio Wirkkala, "Mach" designed by Isao Hosoe and awarded with the Good Design Award 1993, "Thema" in stainess steel with titanium, "Genesis" in stainless steel and copper, both designed by Tarcisio Zani. Vev Viganò is an Italian manufacturer, their product lines include Kontessa, Itaca and Carioca. In 2004 they produced a caffettiera'UFO' designed by Vinod Gangotra, two espresso cups sit in recesses in the upper half of the machine and collects the coffee directly as it's brewed; the upper part is made from cast aluminium whilst the lower from stainless steel. Bellman makes a stainless steel moka pot, the "CX-25 Series", operating at higher pressure and capable of creating a crema, it has a wand to steam liquids, such as milk for cappuccino. The brand Volturno has been manufacturing moka pots in Argentina for many decades. Top Moka, another Italian manufacturer, offers two different styles of moka pots in a wide variety of colours.
The more traditional Top Moka pot comes in sizes varying from two- to six-shot boilers. They make mini moka pots in one- and two-shot sizes that use dispensing arcs rather than the standard collection chamber. Both are available with aluminium boilers for standard cooktops or titanium-alloy boilers for induction stoves. G. A. T. is an Italian company based in Brescia involved in the production of Italian moka coffee-makers since 1986. The range of coffee-makers that G. A. T. proposes is wide and complete, allowing one to choose among various products and prices, following the different market needs or personal liking. After the Second World War, the Italian moka expanded all over the South Europe and it became the standard way of domestically making coffee, its popularity led to non-Italian South European manufacturers making copies or new designs inspired in the original Italian design. Another part of the world the Italian moka reached. Most post-war Italian migrants used the moka pot in their homes which led to many Australians of non-Italian backgrounds to use the pot in their homes.
It is available in many of the Italian-style delis and supermarkets that exist in Australia. The boiler is filled with water up to the safety release valve and the funnel-shaped metal filter is inserted. Finely-ground coffee is added to the filter; the upper part is screwed onto the base. The pot is placed on a suitable heat source, the water is brought to its boiling point, thereby steam is created in the boiler. A gasket ensures a closed unit and allows for pressure to safely build up in the lower section, where a safety valve provides a necessary release in case this pressure should get too high; the steam reaches a high enough pressure to force the surrounding boiling water up the funnel through the coffee powder and into the upper chamber, where the coffee is collected. Although the "boiler" on a moka pot contains steam at elevated temperature and pressure, the water forced up through the grounds is no hotter than that used in other brewing methods – up to 90 °C, depending on the stage of extraction.
When the lower chamber is empty, bubbles of steam mix with the upst

Another contributing factor to this property business was the fact that since Mauritius will not benefit from preferential prices for its sugar by the European Community and World Trade Organization, sugar estates started real estate business units that would convert the land under sugar cane culture to residential lands.
