So in came my at home latte making equipment. By definition, this is technically closer to a misto, or cafe au lait (half coffee, half milk) then a latte (shots of espresso and steamed milk) because I'm not pulling shots of espresso or steaming any milk, but it solves my desires for a latte so completely, I prefer it to Starbucks.
I love my Bella kettle because it's beautiful and functional.
I keep a coffee grinder because the fancy coffee shops in San Francisco will not sell you pre-ground coffee.
I am obsessed, yes, obsessed with my capresso milk frother because it heats my milk up to a perfect temperature without me having to babysit it (stovetop) or cleanup it up when it boils over (microwave).
Single serve French coffee press. Because, who doesn't love a bodum coffee press?
Mug with my initial. A definite yes for anyone.
Flip switch on kettle
Pour milk into frother/warmer
Pour coffee into French press, use what you would use for a full cup of black coffee.
Pour hot water over grinds, just enough to saturate grinds.
Let grinds brew for about 3 minutes.
Pour everything into a mug and drink contentedly.
Time from start to finish? Less time then it takes to run to Starbucks.
