Onobeano’s Latte Blend
It’s not hard to believe that most espresso machines are used more
to brew espresso for use in espresso drinks” than for shots of pure
espresso (at least in this country), yet most espresso blends are
concocted towards the goal of pulling a godshot” - do you see
anything wrong with this picture?
Those that know me know I definitely march to a different drummer,
so the origin of this espresso blend should not surprise anybody.
After years of (chasing that same goal) and experimenting with
different espresso blends, it finally occurred to me that we don’t
drink (as in ‘like’) espresso (shots). We DO, however, really enjoy
a nice latte - our evening lattes have become ritual at our house.
Sorry all you espresso purists, but I must admit that neither of us
really enjoy a shot of pure espresso. I finally realized that every
blend I concocted, while decent as an espresso (with a pretty crema
just like in the pictures)nothing was exceptional, even decent, for
making lattes (or cappuccinos, et al)!
This epiphany changed my approach, and after a bit of
experimentation, the new goal was reached - WOW! We ended up with a
rich, sweet, chocolatey shot” that really bloomed in a cup of
steamed milk. There is very little crema, but crema gets lost in an
espresso drink” anyway, right?
It was soooo good (no bitter taste here!), too good to keep to
ourselves, that I decided to share it with all the rest of you
espresso drink” afficionados. For those of you who prefer flavored
espresso drinks, you will find this blend works equally as well
using flavored coffee creamers available at your local supermarket,
although it does get VERY sweet.
Try this blend and see if it increases your enjoyment of your
favorite espresso drink too. Onobeano’s Latte Blend - also good in
other espresso drinks”
