  • For Coffee: You can use regular filter coffee or Espresso coffee Filter or in the warm water add instant coffee powder (like Bru). At the end, use cooled coffee water.
  • Ladyfinger: You can either use the regular grocery store made soft cake Ladyfinger (I prefer this) than the branded Ladyfinger (Savoiardi). The branded one is less sweet and not as soft.
