For this recipe, you will need an espresso machine, which can also be purchased for as little as $40 dollars. Insert the finely ground coffee grinds into the appropriate spot in the espresso machine and begin making 2 oz. of espresso. Now, begin to steam the milk, making as little bubbles as possible and creating a creamy, hot substance (bubbles are bad and means you tried to move the cup too fast). When the thermometer in the milk shows 130 degrees Fahrenheit, stop steaming. The thermometer is behind and will take a few seconds to catch up to the actual temperature. The ideal final temp for a latte is between 140 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit. By this time, you should have stopped the espresso from dripping when it reached around two oz. Now put a little of your favorite flavor syrup into the espresso shot and swirl around. Pour the espresso and flavoring in a cup or mug. Gently pour the milk in. Enjoy and start your day off right.
