Tips

  • Use any type of coffee. You can prefer espresso or instant coffee.
  • For an intense coffee flavor, use strong coffee. Espresso, hot or cold brewed coffee give an intense coffee flavor to the recipe. To make a hot salted caramel latte, you can choose espresso, and for a cold latte, you can choose cold brewed coffee.
  • You can use whole milk or one of the plant-based milk.
  • Use barista-style almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk to make the recipe vegan.
  • Use a milk frother to froth the milk. If you don't have a machine, heat the milk on the stove. Then froth with the milk frother tool.
