Try something new today and caffeinate with a Cortado, a cult-favorite coffee drink.
Made with just espresso and steamed milk, this simple coffee shop staple is one of the easiest coffee drink recipes to tackle.
Add espresso into a small mug.
Slowly pour in the steamed milk before enjoying it!
Use freshly pulled shots of espresso. I recently learned from a friend who used to be a barista that espresso shots significantly change flavor just 10 seconds after pulling them.
Bring your milk to a simmer, not a boil. You’re looking for a temperature range of about 130-150F. If you go any higher, the milk is liable to taste scorched or burnt.
