1. With the top and bottom containers attached, put the coffee powder into the top container and gently press it down with the plunger. Fill the top container with boiling water and close the lid. Allow one to two hours for the coffee concentrate to drain into the bottom container.

2. Fill a cup about ¼ full with the coffee concentrate. Fill with boiling milk and sugar (your preference). Using two cups pour the mixture from one to the other from as large a distance as you can manage without spilling to make thick foam on the top of the coffee.
