And according to comments from the OCU, one of the debates that are emerging on social networks in recent weeks is preparing coffee in this type of Italian coffee maker with the lid of the coffee maker open or well closed.
In order to be able to give you a clear and concise answer, you must first understand how to make coffee with Italian coffee maker in the best way possible.
As pointed out by her own OCUTo make a rich coffee with an Italian coffee maker, you must first fill the bottom with water up to the safety valve. Now it is time to put the coffee in the filter, taking into account that you need two tablespoons of coffee per cup.
Time to close the coffee maker by screwing the lower part with the upper part. We must put it on the fire until you hear the gurgling of the coffee, and obviously remove the coffee pot as soon as the steam begins to come out.
And the answer may not be what you expect
And now the important question: should you leave the lid closed or wide open during this entire process of making coffee with the Italian coffee maker?
To do this, from the aforementioned organization they point out that the production of coffee in this type of coffee makers is a game of pressure, and basically here the lid has no role.
In this way, the existence of the lid in these coffee makers is to prevent hot coffee from splashing, but when it comes to making coffee, having the lid open or the lid closed does not matter.
In any case, it is convenient to have the lid open, basically to control how the coffee is being made since the idea is that it does not come to a boil to avoid the taste of burnt.
So you have to reduce the heat to medium once the coffee starts to rise, and that is why you should keep the lid open to control the situation.
