  • Add the remaining hot water and cover the chamber with the filter cap. Let the coffee liquid drip into the glass. This may take a few minutes. You can adjust the dripping speed by pressing the filter press. If the coffee drips too quickly, press the filter press a little more to slow it down.

  • Once the filter chamber is empty, remove the filter from the glass. Stir to combine the coffee with the cocoa powder-condensed milk mixture.
  • Add steamed milk to the glass. You can use a milk frother to heat the milk and create froth, or gently heat it on the stovetop and whisk vigorously to create foam (do not let the milk boil). 
  • Dust the mocha with some cinnamon powder (optional) and enjoy.
