Best Homemade Tiramisù

Though I did a transgression and instead to make use of an Italian moka pot espresso maker for the coffee I used a mug full of instant Nescafé. Well, don't blame me if I did so I only thought at whom don't possess a moka pot trying to figure out the best way to substitute Italian espresso coffee without saying...

Well there's something to say anyway, so what about savoiardi? Is there any chance to substitute them with some other kind of cookie? What about mascarpone cheese?

The challenge is getting harder, will I ever make the best homemade traditional tiramisù?

Savoiardi that aren't to much soaked but only moistened enough with coffee to make a good consistency “once in mouth” is one way of making it best.
