  • 2 leveled teaspoons (7 grams) finely ground coffee (almost like cocoa powder)
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz / 60 ml) room temperature water
  • 1 leveled teaspoon (4 grams) sugar


  1. Fill a coffee cup with water and pour the water into the coffee pot. Add the coffee and sugar (if using) and stir well until no lumps remain.
  2. Heat over medium heat and stir again once or twice. Stop stirring and let the coffee get heated through (don't walk away from the kitchen now!). When it starts to foam and before it boils over the pot, remove the pot from the heat and pour into the coffee cup.
  3. Let the coffee rest for 5 minutes in order for the coffee granules to set at the bottom of the cup and the temperature to drop down. Drink by sipping slowly.
