Flat whites are our favourite way to enjoy coffee on the weekend. A double shot of espresso with a small amount of steamed milk and a dollop of foam.
However, one weekend, our espresso machine frother went on the blink. It made a feeble attempt to sputter and spit, but far from the steam stream that is needed to froth up the milk for our flat whites.
That’s when we came up with a back-up plan using another coffee making device . . . our French Press. That’s right. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
- Heat up milk in a saucepan on the stove to the temperature of your likening.
- Pour the milk into the French Press and “plunge” the milk for 45 seconds to one minute.
- Pour the milk and foam into the cup with your espresso (or regular coffee).
That’s it. No frother? No problem.
