I have to admit; I am a sucker for the heart foam latte. I enjoy the occasional leaf but the heart will alway have a place in my...uhhh....heart. Use this step by step guide to prepare the perfect latte for your valentine!
Step by Step:
- Pour milk into your steam pitcher.
- Put the steam wand at the bottom of the pitcher. Turn on the steam, and slowly raise the wand until it is near the top of the milk.

This should create a smooth, velvety milk as opposed to the foam that sits atop most espresso drinks.
- Allow the milk to reach 80 ºF (27 ºC). Then place the steam wand on the side…
I recently purchased a chemex coffee maker and I love it! I have to admit I chose to buy it mainly for the sleek look but it turns out the coffee tastes great too. So now I have a Chemex, French press, espresso machine and a regular drip coffee maker and I like them all! What is your preference and why?
