milk jug foam for espresso lattes (an easy hack)

We like a good head of foam on our espresso lattes.  But we either didn’t invest in a steamer/frother thing, or are too intimidated to use it.  There’s an easy hack to get you that foamy froth without any equipment.

To wit: before pulling your shot, shake the milk jug really well and pouring it in your empty cup.  Heat in the microwave to warm, not hot.  Now pull your shot – I like a long shot, about twice as much espresso as milk.  Now stir with a little spoon until milk and coffee are just mixed.  Don’t want to break up the foam, y’see.

This will work better for a milkier cup, obvs.
