This is my go-to drink on a cold day. It warms up my insides and makes me smile.
For this drink I use our espresso machine. We have a Breville, Café Roma espresso and cappuccino machine. It makes absolutely wonderful espresso. Depending on the size of your cup (or appetite for caffeine) you start by making either a single shot or double shot of espresso. I usually go for the double shot.
So go grab your favorite mug…
…and fill it up with freshly brewed espresso.
Get your steamer cup and add a splash of maple syrup in it. Don’t you dare add pancake syrup! It must be 100% pure maple syrup!!!
Add you milk, milk substitute or cream to the steamer. I always use coconut milk but my husband loves his coffee cream!
Steam your milk and give it a bit of foam. Mmmmm…
Before you pour your milk in, add a bit of whipped cream to inside edge of your cup.
Next, pour the steamed milk in the center of the whipped cream. It will make the whipped cream float to the top so be careful. You don’t want to pour too fast!
I always finish this drink with a nice drizzle of caramel sauce. Have fun with it! Turn this drink into a masterpiece!
Enjoy your hot cup of caramel latte, made with your own two hands. It’s tasty, isn’t it?
