The Mini Express, from Bialetti, allows you to make 2 cups of espresso at once. Please note that this cup size is based on espresso cup sizes and not on regular tea or coffee cup sizes. It works like the original Moka Express, you fill the bottom tank with water and fill the funnel with coffee. Screw on the top column and place direct on stove top. Place cups under spouts your espresso will be ready in 4-5 minutes.
