  • Top off the milk with the freshly brewed expresso, stir, taste for sweetness and enjoy you freshly made latte!


What to use instead of espresso for lattes?
Before we got an espresso machine I used to use 2-3 teaspoons of instant coffee mixed with 3 tablespoons oh hot water instead of espresso in my lattes!
You could also go with regular brewed coffee instead of espresso. That would technically make a cafe au lait and not really a latte but desperate times, call for desperate measures.
