How to Make a Coffee

Home > Brisbane > Recipes
Published December 31st 2010
Who loves coffee? Mostly everyone after the age of 18 who has started studying at university, who has gotten a job, or who has started going out for coffee dates with friends and partners. Aren't coffees too expensive though? I prefer to make my own coffee in the privacy of my own home and just the way I like them.

I will write down a step by step guide of how to make one. Just to assure you that I know, I work in a coffee shop so I know how to make some of the best mochas and cappuccinos around. Does that sound a bit up myself? Well try these tips out and we'll judge on how the coffee goes.

Firstly you will need a good coffee machine which has a milk frother, my favourite brand isDe Longhi. Simply brew the coffee beans in order to get a shot or two of espresso coffee, depending on how strong you like your coffee. Piazza D'oro is one of the best coffee brands.

Second, you get a stainless steel carafe and point the sprout to the right as you insert the steam nozzle into the milk. The milk should be filled up to halfway of the carafe and it is best made when the milk is cold from the fridge.

Thirdly, turn the steam up to full blast and make sure the nozzle is in the milk only halfway so that the foam can continue to get larger and larger until you have the milk as hot as you like, or the froth as big as you like.

Finally, you pour the milk into the coffee cup and stir it with the coffee as you do it in order to make it mix. When you have filled halfway of the cup, hit the carafe twice so that the big foam can be on the top and simply grab as much as you like with a spoon and put it on top of the coffee. Sprinkle as much chocolate as you like on top and there's your perfect cappuccino.
