A cup of bold, dark coffee layered with creamy
milk and a hint of sweet caramel is reason enough to get up in the morning. More specifically,
a Dulce de Leche Latte will wake up your senses. And I’m going to make one right now. A latte is simply 3 parts milk to one part
of espresso. And you can add many different flavors to spice it up. Using freshly roasted
coffee beans and grinding them right before you use them, will give you that distinct
flavor and aroma. I’m using the breville barista express – its
has the grinder and the espresso machine, all in one! First I’m going to steam my milk. When you
direct pressured steam through milk, it changes the protein properties inside and forms these
thousands of little tiny air bubbles that give you the steamed milk as well as a fluffy
layer of foam on top. It also turns the milk sweet and delicious! Remember to use fresh
and cold milk every time, and only steam the amount you need. I filled my milk pitcher and now i’ll place
the steam wand inside the pitcher until it’s submerged. With the steam on full blast, I
move the pitcher up and down until it gets warm. I’m adding foam to the milk. See the
milk spinning around like a whirlpool? The trick in steaming milk is to be patient with
it. When it gets warm, I stop aerating it and then continue heating up until the side
of the pitcher is too hot to touch. That’s when I know my milk is ready. Now it’s time for the espresso. You can play
with the coarseness and grind amount to determine the boldness of flavor. I like mine on the
darker, bolder side, so i’m going to put it on a coarse grind. I’m filling up my portafilter
just to the edge. A portafilter carries the grounds in its basket, and attaches to the
machine before water is pressured through to give you your espresso shot. So once i fill the portafilter with the coffee
grounds, i tamp it firmly, about 30 pounds of weight, so that the surface is flat, compacted,
and smooth. Now I attach the portafilter to the machine
and let the infusion begin! You can see the thick espresso pouring out followed by a blonde
crema. And even if you don’t like the taste of coffee, the sweet, caramel-y aroma is intoxicating.
I love it! But now we need to act fast before the crema
breaks down and the flavor loses intensity. Now i’m pouring the espresso into a mug and
adding a tablespoon of vanilla syrup. Next, i’m pouring the milk into the middle of the
cup, slowly, while holding back the foam with a spoon. The espresso and milk will start
mixing together. When the cup is almost full, I pour the milk
in a little faster until a foam starts to appear. Then I finish by scooping the foam
out with my spoon until it looks like I have a little cloud in my cup. I drizzle some of
the dulce de leche on top of the foam, and that’s it — the perfect latte. Totally delicious.

  4. you can! if you have a vietnamese coffee filter, you can make espresso that way – and then for the milk just heat it up on the stove and aerate with a hand blender for the foam. continue heating it until hot and then mix as shown. good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚
