Thought I would try something new today.
I was thinking how to cut down on the milk.
I would only buy full cream fresh milk. All those low fat, non-fat milk are not for me.
Trust me, if you want to have a nice cappuccino or latte, only full cream fresh milk will do justice. They are smoother, sweeter and just yummy.
But then, with my “middle-kingdom” expanding, I need to come up with alternative to full milk-based espresso drinks. So, here is it. An AmericanoMacchiato.
Hmm.. looks great, strong and full bodied. Unlike the latte or cappuccino I used to make, which is sweetened by the velvety frothed milk, this one is bitter.
Put a teaspoon of sugar. Much better.
Not to my liking though. Never liked Americano nor Kopi-O.
I rather have a straight shot espresso.
Sigh, need to think of another alternative.
