My Own Creation – An “AmericanoMacchiato”

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.
