   The moka pot is most commonly used in Europe, and has become known as an iconic design, displayed in modern industrial art museums, such as the Science Museum in London.

   Mokas come in different sizes, from one to eighteen 50 ml cups. The original design was made from aluminium with bakelite handles.
