Homemade Lattes

My favorite daily ritual is sitting on my porch in the morning and drinking a cup of coffee. I like to nerd out about making it, and read a lot of blogs about people’s coffee setups and recipes. And they’re good! But many feature expensive equipment, highly precise measurements, and the freshest of ingredients. I’ve followed some in the past, but don’t like all the money and effort.

My favorite recipes are easy to approximate and remember, low effort, high quality, and also inexpensive. I have a “latte” recipe that I really like–the espresso is actually concentrated coffee – that hits all these marks. All the equipment combined costs less than $50, $30 if you own any kind of kettle for heating water, and the steps are easy to memorize.
