1. Mix and stir

Add water, coffee and optional sugar to the moka pot and dissolve well

2. Heating

Place the pot on the stove and use a low to medium heat. Let the coffee heat slowly and watch it closely. As soon as you see the characteristic frothing and rising of the coffee, reduce the heat to a minimum.

3. let it simmer

Let the mocha simmer gently until a thick layer of foam forms.

4. let it rest

Remove the moka pot from the stove and let the moka rest for a few seconds so that the coffee grounds can settle to the bottom.
