Some Thoughts About the Ingredients

Brewing Method

Regarding the choice of brewing method, both espresso machines and alternative options like AeroPress or Moka pot work well for making concentrated coffee suitable for this recipe. Instant espresso can also be used by mixing it with 1oz (30ml) hot water.

However, I advise against using methods like French press or drip machines as they may not produce the desired level of concentration. That means that your drink will be a bit watered down.

Kind of Syrup

As for syrup, either store-bought or homemade varieties can be used interchangeably. Personally, I usually opt for convenience with store-bought syrups, but making your own can add a fun culinary twist.

If you want to make the syrup yourself, this is a great vanilla syrup recipe.

Type of Milk

When it comes to milk, any type can be used according to preference. I typically use 2% milk simply because it’s what I usually have on hand, but this recipe is versatile enough to accommodate non-dairy alternatives as well. Ultimately, the choice of ingredients boils down to personal taste and dietary considerations.
