I’ve been cutting back on the amount of times I visit chain coffee shops recently and have been collecting the things I need to make my own cups of coffee at home – I have a coffee machine I bought at half price a few months ago and have been buying a few flavour syrups and the like to recreate some of my favourite hot drinks for myself. Today, I’m sharing with you a recipe for a salted caramel latte macchiato, using just a few simple ingredients. I love sipping on one of these on a weekend morning and hope to get a few more coffee recipes up my sleeve over the coming months.
- Measure how much milk you need by pouring it into your glass to the desired volume and then popping that into a saucepan, ready for heating.
- Heat gently on low, until hot and use a brother to create a nice foam on top.
- Pour a little salted caramel syrup into the bottom of your glass / mug, before pouring the milk over the top, holding a little of the foam back with a spoon.
- Next, make and pour in between half a shot and a whole shot of espresso, depending on how strong you like it. If you pour it carefully into the middle of the glass, you’ll see a hole in the foam. Use the foam you kept back in the pan to cover this up.
- You’ll now be able to see your layers of the drink – milk at the bottom, espresso in the middle and foam on top.
- Drink and enjoy.
