I have a friend Zelia who is visiting her family in Morocco right now. She saw one of her family members making this and just had to ask what it was, come to find out it was a Moroccans very way to make lattes at home. Zelia was nice enough to share this amazing recipe with me because she knows I love coffee. This latte is good; you just have to try it. I am sure that you will enjoy it more than the ones you get from coffee shops, it taste a lot better. You may think that you can do easily by just adding the hot milk then the coffee and sugar, I tried it and it did not come out as well. Therefore, they know what their doing and lets stick with that. I have been making these lattes for myself everyday since she gave me the recipe.
2 cups milk
1-1/2 tablespoons instant coffee (divided)
4 teaspoons sugar (divided)
1. In a small saucepan on medium heat add milk, cook until hot about 2 minutes. Meanwhile add half of sugar and half of coffee into one coffee cup, and the other half in another. Place about 1/2 tablespoon milk into each cup. Mix constantly to form a paste in each cup, about 1 minute.
2. Carefully pour hot milk over coffee paste, gently stir.
Vanilla: Add 1 tablespoon vanilla into milk when it is heating.
Mocha: Add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder into milk when it is heating and increase sugar to 5 teaspoons.
Same method as above except after milk heats froth milk with hand blender.
Yields: 2 servings
