‘I’m going to show you how to take your coffee to the next level,’ she said.

Nonna Fina first filled her coffeemaker with water and then placed the lid and filter on top.

‘When you fill it with ground coffee beans, you have to make sure you press the powder down,’ she said.

Fina added that coffee always ‘comes out better’ when the beans are pressed evenly.

In the meanwhile, she added four heaped spoons of sugar into a cup and waited for the first drops of coffee to drip from the coffeemaker

'You then pour the first drops into the sugar and stir it until it becomes white, almost like a cream,' she revealed
