Etymology 1[edit]

Probably from Italian moka.

Noun[edit]

moka (plural moka or mokas)

  1. A moka pot.
    • 1997, Corby Kummer, The Joy of Coffee: The Essential Guide to Buying, Brewing, and Enjoying, Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin, →ISBN, page 270:
      In a moka, water boils in a closed chamber with enough headroom to allow a head of steam to collect. The pressure from the steam forces the hot water to escape from the chamber and pass through the ground coffee.
