What you'll learn:


Ingredients used in this recipe:

1. 2% fat milk 2. Espresso coffee 3. Vanilla syrup 4. Homemade caramel sauce



1. Make a caramel sauce

If you want, you can make your own caramel sauce. You can also use a store-bought caramel sauce if you prefer.

2. Brew espresso

Brew a single or double shot of espresso with a coffee brewer of choice. I've used a Moka pot to brew my espresso.

3. Steam the milk

Start steaming the milk. Aim to have a slight foam in the milk. The foam will help carry a nice layer of caramel sauce on your drink.

4. Add vanilla syrup

Start by adding a tablespoon of vanilla syrup to a tall glass of choice.

5. Add espresso coffee

Add your freshly brewed espresso coffee to the glass. You can give this a quick stir, so the flavors are well combined.

6. Add the steamed milk

Add the steamed milk to the glass. The small foam layer looks nice, and you can add more caramel sauce to the top!

7. Finish the coffee

Finish the coffee by adding the homemade caramel sauce to the drink. Drizzle as much as you want in the coffee and enjoy!
