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.
