First of all, put cups of cold water to the pot according to how much cups of coffee you are planning to cook. The water must be cold and with high quality (if possible, do not use tap water, chlorine will ruin the taste), these are important for making delicious coffee.
It's time to add sugar to your pot if you want. To make coffee with sugar, add 2 teaspoons of sugar or 2 pieces.
Now it's time to add coffee. For each cup put 2 teaspoon of coffee (approximately 5 grams) and gently mix all the ingredients.
Start to warm up your coffee over low heat. Be very careful, because the coffee can overflow from the pot at a time! After that, it can be troublesome to clean the stove! :) While cooking the coffee, it’s up to your style to mix it or not. Both is optional.
While the coffee churns as light, with a spoon take the foam that accumulates on and share it to the cups. Export and import this foam to cups and repeat it 3 times. Finally pour the coffee into cups. Remember, you should never fully stirred the coffee. Otherwise the fatty acids in the coffee would evaporate and you'll get a cruel and tasteless coffee.

And before I forget, it is from tradition that water will be served with coffee: this water is drank before the coffee to erase the other tastes in the mouth and the taste of the coffee will be achieved more!
