The classic design of the Bialetti stovetops have been perfected over the years, resulting in an increasingly ergonomic, elegant device, while retaining the same functionality.
We're pretty sure that every house within a 10km radius of the Brunswick Roastery has at least two stovetop percolators in residence; at least one of them in need of a new filter and gasket. The beauties are exactly what's required - made by Bialetti, the Italian king of stovetop coffee, and built to last.
Each comes with a brand new mesh-fine filter to suit the stovetop as well as the rubber gasket to hold it in place. These are worn out over time, particularly by those who vigorously clean their stovetops, and as they wear they reduce the function of your brewer and the taste of your coffee.
If you're thinking "What filter? What gasket?" then you definitely need a new one. The 4 Cup model is made to fit a Bialetti 4 Cup Venus and the 6 Cup model is made to fit a Bialetti 6 Cup Venus.
These parts are not sold separately. If you're unsure whether the filter will fit your brewer, please bring your brewer in to see us at one of the Padre cafes as we're unable to accept returns of replacement parts once opened.
Technological simplicity and classically designed elegance have made the Bialetti stove tops genuinely iconic since its debut of the Moka Express in the early 1930s. Bialetti has made over 200 million of these in the years since, and coffee lovers the world over have been enjoying the benefits of the full bodied, espresso style coffee that stovetops are renowned for.
