  • 1 cup Espresso or freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 3 tablespoons Instant Coffee
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Warm Water


  • Prepare the espresso using an espresso machine or brew coffee using a standard drip maker or French press. Pour into the preferred glass.
  • Heat 1 cup of milk in a small pot over medium heat, whisking continuously for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the milk is slightly foamy and warmed. Be careful to not scorch the milk (stirring helps). If you have a milk frother machine such as the Nespresso Aeroccino then you can also use it to warm the milk.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of instant coffee powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and 3 tablespoons of warm water to a small bowl and stir contents together.
  • Using a hand-held mixer set to medium-low speed, begin to beat the coffee mixture. The ingredients will begin to bubble and then thicken. After about 5 minutes of beating it will become a light golden brown and turn silky smooth.
  • Pour the espresso into your cup and either top with the steamed milk or stir the steamed milk with the beaten coffee. Then spoon the beaten coffee on top.


There are TWO ways in which you can add the milk. You can pour the milk directly over the espresso and then top with the beaten coffee OR you can mix the milk with the beaten coffee and then spoon it on top of the espress.
