I love coffee! And apparently today is National Cafe Au Lait Day. And the folks at Krups gave us this delicious recipe to share. Pretty simple, right? Make your own at home – it’ll be cheaper than going to a fancy cafe or a chain coffee shop.
1. Brew Coffee / Espresso
2. Warm Equal Parts Whole Milk or Half-and-Half (heat only until 150⁰F or milk will curdle)
3. Pour Coffee and Milk into Cup to mix and viola! Your Café Au Lait is ready!
**Kick up your Café Au Lait flavor by adding cocoa, mint or french vanilla to your brewed coffee for a unique flavor each morning. Same steps apply.
By the way, in case you were wondering. Cafe Au Lait literally means coffee with milk in French and it is basically brewed coffee with hot milk. It is similar to a latte except a latte is made with a shot (or two or three) of espresso poured into a cup and topped with steamed milk.
