I'm italian and, of course, coffee lover. "Moka" and "espresso" are different kind of coffee drink, never to confuse. Both are called in Italy "Caffè", an italian don't ask for an espresso in a bar, but simply for a "caffè". If you are hosted in a friends' house, if they offer you a caffè without specification, they are offerinf you a caffè made with a "caffettiera", if they have a coffee machine may specify the kind of coffee. By the way, lots of italian never clean a caffettiera (called simply moka) with soap and many don't clean it at all, because cleaning a moka removes from it some coffee flavour!
