Don't you just love sitting down and drinking a good hot latte? Of course you do, that is why there are so many coffee shops offering these great mouth watering pick me ups for ridiculous prices. Wouldn't it save you time and money if you knew how to make a latte for yourself? Sure, some of you may argue that what makes a good latte is not only the drink itself but the atmosphere that you drink it in. No one in their right mind would argue that fact but who has the time and money to always enjoy this drink in a cafe? And why should we only be able to have this experience while we are out and about? This is why finding out how to make a good latte will be a bonus that you will not regret. Once you learn how to make these drinks you then can also share your knowledge with friends and family by making a cup or two for them. There really is no secret to doing this: you just need to know how.
Ok, firstly you need to buy good coffee beans and learn how to make the perfect espresso. This can be a little more costly but worth it in the end. You will also need a good coffee bean grinder to do the hard work for you. All the decent coffee shops use these to make you your perfect cup of coffee.
Lets face it, why do a job half hearted! If you want a latte like you get in the coffee shop then you have to do it properly. Once you have ground those beans then you get the espresso machine going. After brewing your coffee the espresso should have a brown foam. This is important for a good latte. Once you have done that you are nearly done making your favorite drink.
Now what you need is the other important ingredient, the milk. If you do not have any steam heating tools on your espresso machine then you can use the microwave oven or the stove top to heat your milk and make it frothy and hot. But if you really want to know how to make a latte the way the experts do then the steaming tools are the way to go. By using the correct equipment you will no doubt end up with the perfect latte just like the ones you pay for. Once your milk is hot and frothy you then add that to your coffee and like magic you have a cuppa worthy of any cafe comparison!.
