Fooling the Barista: Fizz that Milk

"Oh coffee, I hail thee 
Awake and happy, you make me
But milk my friend, froths not
So I have to settle for cafe bought
But now I have a secret way
To get my fix with a home stay
Ready in minutes, effort close to none
Hear me milk, I finally won."

1/2 cup milk
1 shot of espresso or 1/3 cup instant coffee in hot water
Sugar to taste

  1. Heat the milk for 45 seconds
  2. Pour it in a french press and work the press with smooth pumping movements till the milk is double its volume. Keep aside
  3. Prepare your espresso, or if you don’t own a machine like me, mix 3/4 teaspoon of your favorite instant coffee in boiling water.
  4. Tilt the cup and pour the frothed milk slowly from the side till the top
  5. Top with the milk froth and dust with coffee or chocolate powder
  6. Give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy!
