  • 1 oz 30 ml of espresso or extra strong brewed coffee
  • 1 oz 30 ml of whole milk
  • Sugar optional


  • Prepare your coffee. If you have an espresso or Nespresso machine, use it! Otherwise, brew a bit of very strong coffee on the stove or in a French press coffee maker.
  • Steam or heat your milk until it's as hot as possible without bringing it to a boil.
  • Pour the milk over the coffee.
  • Add sugar to taste, and grab a couple of cookies if you're feeling fancy. Enjoy!


You can steam the milk on the stove, in a small pan over low heat; or if you're short on time, you can also heat it up in the microwave (not exactly steamed, but close enough).
