In This Recipe


  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk until just before scalded. Use a wire whisk or an electric-frother to froth milk.
  2. Make espresso or coffee to your liking.
  3. In the bottom of a coffee mug, add a half teaspoon of brown sugar, a half teaspoon of molasses, and a pinch of cinnamon. Top with coffee.
  4. Using a large spoon to hold back the foam, pour the heated milk over the coffee. Ladle the foam on top. Add another pinch of brown sugar and cinnamon and serve. And maybe add another drip of molasses.
