Coffee purists would say ‘no’ and that crema is only possible using the espresso machine. However, we’re not purists (we just like coffee) and we can tell you that with practice you can create crema with a moka pot. The trick? Use beans that are fresh as you can get and, preferably, grind your own. The twist? Grind like your grinding for an espresso brew, the consistency you’re looking for is that of table salt.
