Fresh Miles coffee and perfectly frothed milk come together to make Barista-style coffee
If you are missing your local cafe at the moment, replicate their great coffee at home. All you need is a passion for coffee, time, some basic equipment you will have in your cupboards and your favourite Miles coffee.
Two cup cafetiere
A 350-600ml milk jug
Your favourite Miles coffee, made up (either in a cafetiere or coffee machine)
350ml whole milk
As soon as your favourite coffee is ready, pour it into your mug, only filling it half way.
Add in 350ml of cold, whole milk into a milk jug it (we recommend full fat milk for best results, but you can use semi-skimmed or skimmed if you would prefer).
Pour the milk into a small pan and gently heat on the hob until it reaches 60-65˚c, checking the temperature with a thermometer. Be careful to heat it slowly so the milk doesn’t burn.
Transfer the hot milk into your cafetiere and put the lid on with the plunger pulled all the way up.
Plunge up and down several times as fast as you can until you see the texture of the milk changing. You will notice that a glossy foam will start to form.
Pour the foam and milk back into your milk jug and swirl it slowly to mix the milk and the froth.
Get as close as you can to the coffee mug with the milk jug and pour the milk and froth slowly into your coffee – try to shake the milk jug side to side slightly as your pour the milk out, so you will have a balanced mixture of milk and froth.
The end result should be a lovely, creamy cup of coffee, enjoy!
