      Brewing Steps

      1. Measure Your Ingredients: For each cup of water, you'll need about 1-2 tablespoons of coffee and 1-2 teaspoons of sugar, depending on your preference.

      2. Fill the Bottom Chamber: Fill the bottom chamber of your Primula Aluminum Stovetop Espresso Maker with water up to the safety valve.

      3. Add Coffee: Place the ground coffee into the filter basket. Tamp it down gently, but don't pack it too tightly.

      4. Add Sugar: Sprinkle sugar over the coffee grounds. Adjust the amount to your desired sweetness level.

      5. Assemble and Heat: Attach the top chamber and place the coffee maker on your stovetop over medium heat.

      6. Listen for the Gurgling Sound: As the water heats up, it will pass through the coffee grounds, mixing with sugar and creating the signature Cuban coffee crema. When you hear a gurgling sound, your Cuban coffee is ready.

      7. Pour and Enjoy: Carefully pour the Cuban coffee into your cup, and savor the bold, sweet flavor.
