That is interesting. I've been watching Comedians in Cars drinking Coffee, the Seinfeld thing... and was a bit shocked to see so much mokka pot/cafetiere type coffee there is in the USA; I wondered if Europe has become the coffee fusspot base. But I'd agree. Forgetting about the grains getting through bit, it's substantially less good coffee than a pressurised espresso type feed, or filter.
Well, you can hardly generalize over such big areas as Europe or the US. I guess all major cities have neighborhoods where there are lots of cafes and/or people with the taste for and means to buy fancy coffee.
In the last 20 or so years home espresso makers with or without pods, and with or without authentic pressure during brewing. Not sure how big a part of home coffee brewing this has switched to this. Traditionally most coffee in Denmark, and probably most of Northern Europe, has been filter coffee. The MoccaMaster style drip filter brewers are very popular still. In Meditarranian Europe, I believe that the moka pot reigns supreme.
I do think a moka pot makes for a nice potent latte, but it is a little too harsh for me to drink it neat
