A frothy cup of coffee…

How many of you love your cup of coffee? I have a mind that see-saws between tea and coffee, I always wait for its call… The time it says tea, then it has to be my usual strong milk tea, otherwise it is alwayPins coffee, especially when I am out. I love to try coffee from different cafes and don’t mind the money I spend on it every month! Despite the fact that coffee is quite good at leaving you with stained teeth (darn!), I make sure I wash my mouth properly after enjoying my large cup of coffee. I always say that tea is for my good moods and coffee for my bad moods, and as always, the latter is much more than the former – hehe – and therefore, I drink more coffee than tea.

 

I am not a fan of the normal Nescafe but like Nescafe Gold and a bigger fan of our Indian brand, Bru. So there are always two small bottles of coffee in my pantry at any given point of time. I have already posted previously my normal way of making coffee, but ever since I have been seeing online on how you could make a nice frothy cup of coffee, I have been making it this way since then. All your usual ingredients, with some hand exercise! To make it easier, you can buy something called milk frother from Ikea, such a handy little machine that is! Whenever HD asks for a coffee, which is quite rare since he is more of a tea person, he always loves it with the froth on the top. Off to the way I make it…

 

Some more coffee “gyaan” before I sign off… Hehe…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp coffee I used Nescafe Gold
  • 1 tsp sugar as per taste

Instructions

  • Heat the milk and continue till it comes to a rolling boil.
  • Meanwhile, in your mug, add the coffee and sugar.
  • Drop in a couple of drops of hot water, just enough to moisten the coffee.
  • With the back of a spoon, start whipping in with full strength. You will start seeing the concoction turn from a dark brown mixture to a creamy mixture and it will double in volume.
  • Keep whipping till your hands ache, or if you are using the Ikea milk frother, then nothing like it! The more you whip, the frothier coffee you get!
  • Once the milk boils and froths, switch off the flame and pour into the frothy coffee mixture from a height. Give it a mild stir and enjoy!

Notes

You can use full fat milk for a richer coffee for sure!
Do not add more water than two to three drops. I heat little water in the microwave and then drip it into the coffee and sugar, just enough to wet it.
I have seen some recipe adding cream. If you wish, you can top your coffee with whipped cream and to make it extra decadent, some chocolate sauce as well! Since I have enough to my waist line, I would avoid them! πŸ˜‰

  7. I toggle between tea and coffee as well! It’s nice to see I’m not alone! It tends to be seasonal for me and when I’m drinking coffee, I always say I’m trying to get back to tea (?) It needs to be strooonng tea as well, green or black, I love it really strong! I would love to see a video of you making this!!
