How I Make My Morning Latte

A few years ago a friend of ours opened a coffee shop in Sundre.  It opened my world up to the wonders of coffee beverages.  I don’t care for the taste of a plain cup of coffee but I do like it blended with milk and/or flavoured syrups.


For several years, I had an espresso maker with a steamer function for the milk but my last machine failed and I was left coming up with a way to make my latte with a Keurig.  I am not a connoisseur by any means but this works for me.

I start with some flavoured syrup in the bottom of my mug.


I then add some cold skim milk but I only fill it to about an inch from the rim of the mug.


I use a milk frother to create some foam.  It only takes a few seconds and for some unknown reason I like the foam.


The mug goes in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.  While it heats up, I make my espresso with the Keurig.  I use the refillable pod to help keep garbage down.


I choose the smallest cup size on the Keurig but I still have some espresso wasted when I’m done.


When the milk and syrup combo is hot and the espresso is made, I pour the espresso into the mug.  And I always spill some.


I mix it up gently with a spoon and then…


I enjoy it.
