[Walmart] Bialetti Musa stainless steel 2 cup stovetop espresso $40.97

I was looking for a 2 cup (don't confuse espresso cup size with American coffee cup) stove top espresso device and found this better deal at Walmart. At other online places I checked, the price was around $60.
Just got it and to my surprise, had included in the package a 200g Bialetti coffee bag sample, really good, dark, strong, great flavor. That knocked few more bucks from an already good price.
Rakuten just sent notification of another 1% cash back.

This 2 cup is very small, probably less than a small cup.
I have a 6 cup version, which is slightly more than I need.
I don't drink much though.
I think a normal person might need a 4-6 cup, in size, which is like a cup of medium (4cup) to large (6cup) coffee.

Haven't been to winners/homesense in a year because of Covid, but pre-Covid these were in stock at most locations for about $20.

Still using my Groshche from the old Hudson Bay thread was started for the 6-Cup Bialetti for $36. (The grosche 2-cup ended up being $9 or something with the same code, more than enough espresso for my lattes).

Now that was a hot deal
If I robbed the place I would be out by now....

The cup size is counted by espresso shots, which explains why size-wise a 2-cup moke pot is very small but contains sufficient caffeine for one person.

They weren't Bialetti though and they were probably the aluminum versions which wouldn't work on an induction stove.

2-cup is great for one person, you definitely need a 6-cup as well at some point if you have two more people over.

For two persons I use a 6cup moka pot and is absolutely fine, with this 2cup I basically get close to half of a 6cup pot, just perfect for me, about 150ml liquid gold.
For convenience I drink daily the dripping "bulk" coffee but you can't compare the quality with espresso.
This is my first stainless steel Bialetti, will definitely get a bigger size to replace my aluminum one.
The sizing of moka pots might confuse some people, my post was intended for the people who know.

Since everyone here has a moka pot, does anyone use a Aeropress filter on it? to make "filter" coffee?

Cold. You can get these things for less than $20 at Winners or Amazon.

Just so no one is misled, this doesn't make espresso coffee.

No you can't, you can buy knock-offs for 20$ but not Bialetti moka pots, especially not the induction stove stainless steel ones.

It's fine, some people are happy with knock-offs, would not exist if nobody would buy them.

Correct. They had about 6 different brands from what I remember. Bialetti was one of them. I'm certain. I can't remember models obviously but I ended up with an itallian branded one that was both induction compatible and was a 10 cup size. It's taken a long time to dial in the grind size and get your levels just right, but when everything is bang on it's the best f'n coffee you'll have

Whats the comparison in terms of "2 cup moka coffee" equal in terms of drip coffee caffeine?

It is a bit pricier but I would just get Brikka 4cups. Pretty solid and much better than Moka version.

Yes, I find the filter keeps out the very fine grounds out of the coffee. Makes for fairly consistent coffee if you have your heat and grind size dialed well.

I've had one of these classic moka pots for a while.

It's great if you're not in a hurry.

A further question.
How much coffee do you use? How much water do you use?
For the Musa (6 cup), I saw (I think) that it takes 300 ml of water (up to the relief valve).
That would mean 18 gm of finely ground coffee, correct?
