After the birthday present of my coffee machine I have been experimenting with coffee making methods.
One of the key decisions in making a latte is what sort of milk to use.
I have picked up from various cafe’s that they use a very low fat milk, sometimes using “Capo”.
I have used Capo and low fat milk because of this. People express that it is easily to fluff/aerate.
Then a mate and I went out to a coffee shop I have wanted to visit, the Beaufort St Merchant Coffee shop, opposite Soto’s. I used to love Soto’s, but lately I have been unimpressed with the coffee, I think they may have changed their barrista, too hot and ‘watery’ and on a side point, the music is too loud (!)
But at the Beaufort St Merchant Coffee shop we had a good chat to the young barrista there. I asked him what milk he used…..Harvey Fresh Full Cream Milk.
So I made up my morning latte using Brownes full fat version. I have to tell you….it is much better than low fat milk. You can make a nice think cream of milk, with a good full taste.
