Superlatte Our Story, Recipes

Making a frothy, cafe-style Superlatte is totally doable at home, once you know the tricks of the trade. Here are 3 ways for you to try.

Lacking a trained barista and Italian espresso machine at home? Well that might be a high standard to achieve, but for most of us, having a lovely coffee machine on the counter with a milk steamer is just as out of reach.

In fact, I certainly don’t have a machine on my kitchen counter and I run a hot beverage business! But while I do love making Superlatte’s with a coffee machine steam wand in cafes, there are 3 methods that are just as good for home. One of which, is my favourite for the most satisfying Superlatte of all.

Microwave

The first foolproof way to make a frothy creamy Superlatte without a coffee machine is to use a microwave to heat the milk. Easy at the office, and done within a minute.

  • Using a jug or large cup, warm 250ml milk or plant-based alternative in the micro
  • Once warm, but not boiling, add the recommended amount of Superlatte powder
  • Add about a half teaspoon coconut oil (totally optional)
  • Use a small handheld stick blender (for best results) or a battery powered cappuccino / milk frother to properly blend and froth the mixture
  • Pour into your favourite cup or double walled coffee glass
  • Garnish with edible flowers or cinnamon and cocoa etc, if you’re feeling extra indulgent

Stove Top

This has to be my favourite method of all. By gently brewing your milk and Superlatte blend, you’re going to get a smoother, creamier, richer flavour experience, much like you would from a traditional stove top chai. I use a small pot that makes about 2 cups, and it’s all done in under 3 minutes. There’s really something to be said for going old school and taking the time to make yourself a treat.

  • In a mini saucepan, warm 250ml milk or plant-based alternative
  • While warming, add the recommended amount of Superlatte powder
  • Add about a half teaspoon coconut oil (totally optional)
  • Use a battery powered cappuccino / milk frother to properly blend and froth the mixture
  • Pour into your favourite cup or double walled coffee glass
  • Garnish with edible flowers or cinnamon and cocoa etc, if you’re feeling extra indulgent

Milk Frother

You’re nearly a Barista when you own one of these nifty appliances. I’m talking about a milk frother, a gadget much like a mini kettle, that heats and froths your milk at the touch of a button. While they’re not cheap, a milk frother ain’t going to break the bank either, and is a handy thing to have if you’re regularly craving hot frothy Superlattes. Definitely one for the pros.

  • Add 250ml milk or plant-based alternative to your milk frother, together with the recommended amount of Superlatte powder.
  • Quick Stir.
  • Add about a half teaspoon coconut oil (totally optional)
  • Hit the button to heat and froth your Superlatte mixture.
  • Pour into your favourite cup or double walled coffee glass
  • Garnish with edible flowers or cinnamon and cocoa etc, if you’re feeling extra indulgent
