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.

  1. 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.
  2. Heat gently on low, until hot and use a brother to create a nice foam on top.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. You’ll now be able to see your layers of the drink – milk at the bottom, espresso in the middle and foam on top.
  6. Drink and enjoy.
