Crazy for lattes too? Read how it all got started for me, plus discover delicious milk frother recipes you can easily make at home.
Do you remember the first time you tried a latte? Way, way back in my early 20’s, when I had my children’s clothing business, my husband and I stopped at a coffee shop on our way home from a business meeting. It was a longtime dream of mine to sell my designs at a boutique in the city, and the owner had just agreed to carry a large part of my collection. Needless to say, we were elated (and a bit relieved). So, instead of heading straight home, we decided to celebrate with a fancy coffee.
It’s funny looking back on it now. That coffee shop was Starbucks and it was the first time either of us had ever tried a latte or cappuccino. Spending that much on two coffees was a big splurge for us.
To this day, that moment has stuck with me. I can picture the green velvet chairs we sat on with rustic coffee table between, oversized mugs we slowly sipped from, all while listening to the coffee house music playing in the background. It felt a bit surreal.
Maybe that’s why I have a fondness for lattes to this day. That, and the fact that they taste so darn good!
I think coffee has a way of bringing us together and creating special moments. I’m sure you can recall at least one time in your life when this was true. Someday, when our restrictions are lifted and life feels a bit more normal, I look forward to experiencing it again. Feel the same way?
Until then, I thought it would be fun to share some delicious lattes and other hot milk drinks you can create at home. Whether you have a fancy Milk Café or steam wand on an espresso machine like I do, or simply use a handheld frother, these recipes are sure to satisfy. Which one will you try first?
