Due to Italian words, Latte mean coffee with milk so rather than a cappuccino, latte will consist more milk and that’s why you gonna have less coffee taste in creamy. Generally if you put more milk on your coffee than it becomes a latte.
1 – Buy Your Fresh Coffee Bean
If you want to make a latte at home than first thing that you should do is by having your fresh coffee bean and if you browse on Amazon than there are a lot of beans variety that you can buy. If you already know your favourite beans than you can simply choose one of them but if you just begin your coffee journey than buy 100% arabica beans will be safe for you stomach.
2 – Scale Your Beans for 14 to 17 Grams
Having the rights scale for your beans will affect your coffee taste but generally 14 to 17 grams of beans is in fine for a cup of coffee. I know that there are a lot of electric and portable coffee scale but when you just use it for your own than buy the cheapest coffee bean scale is quite enough.
3 – Grind Your Bean
Once you got the right scale for your bean than the next step of how to make a latte at home is grind your coffee. As I told you before that I used the best grinder for my cafe that cost over than $3,000 but if you just make a latte for your own than having reliable and chick coffee grinder is way better.
Hamilton Beach 80335R is one cheap electric grinder option that you can have for your own and now it’s your turn to grind your coffee bean into a powder.
4 – Make Your Great Espresso
There are a lot of home espresso machine that you can buy for less than $250 but if you want to make it as same as your grinder than the Hamilton Beach Espresso Machine with Milk Frother is enough for your own.
With one group of porta filter and its own 15 bar Italian pump system than I sure that you could make your own espresso within a seconds.
5 – Cheaper Alternative to Make an Espresso
Another cheaper option if you want to make an espresso is by using the mokapot and this is what I had on my pantry. By using the mokapot you don’t need to use any electricity which is mean you will reduce your electricity bill for sure.
You definitely need a stove to make a great espresso by mokapot and when you prefer to have this cheaper alternative than you could consider about buy Bialetti 06800, it will cheaper than the espresso machine for sure.
6 – Get Your Fresh Milk
You could buy any kind of fresh milk from the nearest supermarket and make sure it’s plain or consist no sugar at all. Weather you use fat or non-fat milk that it doesn’t matter with that as long as you got the fresh milk than it’s quite enough to make your own latte at home.
7 – Froth the Milk
If you buy Hamilton Beach Espresso Machine with Milk Frother than you directly can froth your milk at the same machine cause this gears consist of espresso machine and the milk frother. But if you make your espresso manually buy using Bialetti 06800 than need another gears to froth your fresh milk till it produce the foam.
The Cheaper way to frothing the milk manually is by using the Bodum 10938-01 Brazil French Press, without this thing you also don’t need any more electricity which mean you gonna reduce your monthly electricity bill too.
By the way I also had this french press at my pantry together with the mokapot, so here I fully make my coffee manually without any electricity gears and the taste is still amazing!
Now see my own home made latte,
Through this method I hope you got an inspiration about how to make a latte at home (surely you also can make a cappuccino too by frothing your milk more) and reduce your month cafe bills. If you drink 2 cup coffee per day that cost $3,50 each than you will saving $210/month or $2,520/year which will enough for you to pay wedding band or simple decoration on your venue.
