Latte!

After spending the summer in Seattle, I started to drink more and more lattes. I love foam. The foam is the best part of the latte. I always get disappointed when the barista neglects to give me enough foam. I won't have that problem anymore because now I can make my own foam! It's a dream come true! I bought an aerolatte and a Bialetti. So now I can make my own lattes. The foam came out amazing... all velvety the way I like it. The espresso came out fine too... but I'm not that picky about that. The only problem is that when I'm done with the foam, I don't have much of a desire to finish the coffee! I'll have to adjust the ratio of foam to coffee :)

You should just make a big cup of foam. :) Very impressive.

I admit... I love eating foam, too!! Especially when it's a flavored latte, and somehow just the act of pouring the almond syrup through the foam into the latte below ends up sweetly flavoring the foam... If you also like sweetened coffee, I highly recommend making your own coffee syrup :D My personal favorite is to make a syrup-carmel reduction using half Amaretto liqueur & half carmelized water-sugar mix... mmmmmmmm I have a bottle of my syrup on my desk for my stay-perky-at-work coffees! I'm really missing the foam experience.... yours looks just decadent!

holler....
you should just get a dry cappuccino.
the only difference b't a a cappuccino and a latte is that cappuccino is more foam. and then a dry one means it's even MORE foam.

anyway, not to be a stalker, but was perusing your facebook and saw the link -_- haha hi!
