Why 58 espresso™ insists on a 58 mm Portafilter

Although every famous espresso machine

differs in size, many companies have the 58 mm group heads in common.
Considering the quality of coffee extraction and the compatibility of accessories, 58mm is the best choice. For this reason, our brand name bears the number 58 - we love 58!

Limitations Of the Moka Pot

1. Water Temperature Too High

Moka Pot's closed boiling water temperature reaches about 120 degrees Celsius, which is far above 95 degrees Celsius, the optimum brew temperature for ideal espresso. This makes sense because the higher the air pressure, the higher the boiling point of the water. A Moka Pot's 120 degrees Celsius causes the problem of excessive extraction.

2. 1.5 bars is the highest air pressure that Moka Pots can make at best.

So it falls short of 9 bars, the ideal espresso extraction pressure. Espresso, to be good, must be extracted quickly under high pressure and 1.5 bars is not enough.
