Ask anyone who knows me and they will agree with me when I say, I am an AVID Starbucks fan!
Being as such, I have always been very critical of "homemade lattes"
UNTIL my sweet parents gave me my own espresso machine for Christmas!
Now I'm HOOKED!!!
(Therefor, I don't go to Starbucks nearly as often, my poor gold card is not getting any use! ha!)
Krups Solo Steam Espresso Machine
Now heres what I dont know....
Is it the machine or is it the espresso that makes the latte great??
IF its the machine then the one I have is awesome. IF its the espresso then everyone must run down to your nearest Whole Foods and snag their Organic Espresso.... WOW-ZA!!!
Trust me its THE BEST espresso!
Now if I can just learn to do FROTH ART like my local coffee shop.
So here are my attempts ... some accidental, some intentional.
A "B" for Bella! A Christmas tree!
A Heart <3 An Exclamation Mark!
Then, I looked into finding a vanilla syrup & they were all filled with yuck.... So I made my own & who knew its SO easy!
Homemade VANILLA Syrup
1Cup Organic sugar
1Tablespoon Organic Vanilla extract
Boil together until syrup-y!
I'm not ashamed to say, I get excited to wake up in the mornings
and experience this delightful cup of espresso!
Cheers to you!!
