It’s official– I’ve become smug about my barista skills (and shameless with tooting my own horn…). My bank account is proud of me, so thought you may be too– or at least want in on my secret. On Sunday morning, I was mulling over my tasty creation and thought I would share the simple recipe in case, you too, like to start your day with top notch caffeine. Historically, I’ve always preferred a $6 latte at a favorite spot nearby and have wondered for years why it was always better when someone else made it, but finally found matchmade ingredients that morning dreams are made of. I did my research, asked, experimented, and created a café worthy coffee!
I have a Nespresso machine, but any espresso will work! Just make sure that it’s a light roast and a well-balanced blend. “Biscuity notes” is the description on my Voltesso capsules, so I went for it and approve. As for almond milk, Matt and I have been buying the Califia unsweetened almond milk forever, so I tried just that initially, but it needed a sweet touch. I picked up the hazelnut at the store (obsessed with hazelnut) and it’s amazing. I make 2 espresso shots, and pour over the steamed milk (half a cup of regular almond milk + half cup hazelnut creamer) and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. SO good.
I hope you enjoy!
