Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Like 0 Twitter Liz Hardcastle Follow Sept. 5, 2016, 1:29 a.m. in Life and Styles Views: 638 Like us on facebook For the record, I do NOT like pumpkin spiced lattes but apparently, when I'm pregnant that's what I crave. I made my own using my wonderful espresso machine and it was perfecto! So here's how I did it. You will need: Espresso Machine Coffee beans Whole or 2% milk Pumpkin Spice Syrup Cinnamon Whipped Topping: (optional but so much more fun) I have a DeLonghi EC702 Espresso machine. I have had it for a year now and I still LOVE it! You can find it on Amazon here. First prep your coffee. But DON'T make the espresso yet. I did two shots. To start you will prep your espresso machine for frothing the milk. Fill your pitcher about half way. If you like my pitcher you can find it here. Start your frothing method. I usually prefer 2% milk to whole for frothing but our small town grocery store has the weirdest milk and the 2% milk tastes like 90% water 10% milk. Froth to about 60 C. I like my smart pitcher because it tells me when I'm done. (My brain doesn't start working until AFTER I drink my coffee.) Make your espresso with the coffee you prepped earlier. The reason for this order is that the frothed milk does best if it can sit for a few second. Espresso should be served as soon as made so I make my frothed milk first so that it can sit while I'm making my espresso for the freshest, best coffee possible. While you are making your espresso, go ahead and measure your pumpkin spice syrup. I like Torani but I haven't personally tried any other brands for pumpkin spice. Measure one 2 oz. Jigger. You can find a jigger here. Pour the syrup into your empty cup. Now add your espresso. Add your beautiful frothed milk. Add optional whipped topping (sorry guys, I was out so I couldn't) and optional ground cinnamon. And take your Instagram picture and enjoy! :) If you are looking for a great coffee supply shop check out Barista Pro Shop!
