4 Steps To Make This Coffee:


1. To Prepare Espresso:

Different methods to use to make espresso. Mostly we prefer the classic method, the Moka pot, for this. If you are using another, prepare your espresso as usual. It is all right, so first, put the 16 and a half grams of finally grounded Cuban coffee in the filter basket. It leveled off but was not packed. Fill the bottom section with filtered water. Attach the filter to the top section after placing it at the bottom. Place on the stove and turn on the medium flame. You don’t overcook the coffee and rush the process.

2. Warm The Milk:

Warm the milk in the microwave. Be careful not to boil the milk; only steam it.

3. Prepare Espuma:

Take a Creamer or small bowl, and add 4 tablespoons of sugar. An ounce3 of espresso from the Moka pot removes it from heat. Then pour over the sugar. To finish brewing, return the pot to the stove. For a foamy appearance, the light brown layer beat the sugar and espresso until the sugar dissolve.

4. Add Steamed Milk:

Take a halter or rocks; this glass has no handle. So you are not little bit quickly pick it. That’s why your coffee is not too hot. Pour espuma into the glass and add steamed milk. This milk cuts the espresso, increases its sweetness and brightness and reduces its bitterness. When we are steaming the milk, a little bit of foam appears on the top. It looks very nice.
