This is aluminum oxidation and it's there because the previous user left it over to dry by itself. I have some aluminum mokas and managed to get this earlier. This level of aluminum is safe to ingest and otherwise it's the same thing GdD said to you in a comment

  • i didn't see a comment other than yours, is there anything you suggest i do Damian? vinegar, baking soda, etc, etc, is there anything i can do, and you would feel safe drinking out of it daily? thanks in advance, and thank you for your answer.

    The suggestion is to ignore it. It's just cosmetic.
