If I prepared Carambar® syrup, it was actually with the intention of making deliciously flavored Carambar latte macchiato. I wanted to find its unique flavor in a very frothy coffee.
By the cold weather ahead, it will be the perfect drink, comforting as you wish.
To prepare a good latte macchiato, of course, you need a nice milk froth. There are quite expensive devices for this, but it is also very easy to find small milk frothers. For a few euros, they transform a simple drink into a real moment of pleasure. I find that there is nothing more greedy than a beautiful mousse!
My latte macchiato consists of Carambar syrup which flavors and sugar at the same time, frothed milk, coffee prepared in the Italian coffee maker and foam.
I really didn’t expect to get such pretty layers, so well marked, especially since it’s so easy to prepare.
For 1 cup:
Carambar syrup (recipe here)
50 to 60 ml whole milk
Pour the milk into a tall cup and heat it slightly.
Froth by putting the frother on the surface of the milk. Just touch it.
It takes about 30 seconds to get a nice lather.
In the serving glass, pour a stock of syrup.
Pour the milk over it, trying not to create too much foam.
Slowly pour the espresso over the milk.
Cover with moss.
To finish: to make it even more delicious, you could reduce the Carambar to a fine powder in the blender, and sprinkle it on top of the mousse.
I found my milk frother in my small supermarket. It doesn’t cost anything, but it’s really super smart as a product.
If you don’t want to use milk, just try sweetening your espresso with the syrup. We get a delicious fragrant coffee that frankly changes everything!
A classic espresso will also be perfect.
