HOW TO: Make Your Own In-House Cafe Latte

Apr2608Apr 26, 08


I was recently given an array of coffee-making appliances to quell my thirst for homemade coffee drinks. After much trial and error, I have created a method by which anyone can make their own Café Latte! The steps are provided below:

  • Step 1: Find the three required appliances

    1. Coffee maker (you have one if you are still reading)
    2. Coffee grinder (I like Sunbeam's Mr Coffee)
    3. Milk Frother (Go and buy the handheld Latte-Whip - it's unbelievable)
  • Step 2: Make the espresso

    Grind 1/3 cup of dark roast coffee beans and make coffee using all of the grinds produced, with 11/2 cups of water.
  • Step 3: Froth the milk

    Using your new milk frother, froth as much milk as will fill 1/3 of your mug, and pour that froth into your mug. Then froth another 1/3 mug of milk and set aside.
  • Step 4: Mixing the drink

    Pour the freshly brewed espresso (the brown liquid in your coffee maker) in a zigzag pattern over the frothed milk in your mug. Stir the froth-coffee mixture until it mixes nicely. Now pour the other 1/3 mug of frothed milk into the 2/3 full mug.
  • Step 5: Chocolate, or cinnamon?

    Optionally, you can choose to top off this great drink with a drizzling of chocolate syrup, chocolate powder or cinnamon.
