“Make a fancy coffee house beverage from your own home. No special equipment required. I learned to make my own coffee house espresso beverages at home and save money. I use a french press (also known as a plunger pot or "Bodum" pot) to brew the coffee. It is the next best brew to Espresso. You can also of course use an espresso machine if you have one, or use strong freshly brewed coffee (preferably double strength at least). The lower-end espresso machines are really not worth the money, they don't work that well. I have one and use the french press instead!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 ounces freshly brewed espresso (or strong coffee, double strength recommended)
  • 12 ounces skim milk


  1. Pour cold milk into a saucepan and heat on medium heat just until too hot to put your finger into it.
  2. Pour espresso into 2 mugs.
  3. Pour the steamed milk into mugs over the brewed espresso.
  4. Enjoy!
