How to Make a Perfect Latte – Coffee Recipe

How to make a perfect latte - coffee recipe

Thursday, a day for Coffee Recipes!

In our previous blog, we explained how to make a perfect espresso cup.

Today, we are making un caffe latte! 🇮🇹 


With the Reliant Coffee guide, 

Our plan is to show you how to make your

favorite caffeinated beverage step by step,

while letting your imagination run wild!


And what’s the best thing of all you ask?

You won’t be needing any additional equipment!

You can flavor up your beverage however you like, 

add some chocolate, vanilla, or any kind of topping of your preference!


Also, the ones who are dairy intolerant, don’t worry!

We can use dairy-free products as well, and still, get the desirable taste!

In this process, we are going to use ingredients that are meant for 

Original Coffee Latte.


However, we don’t want to limit your taste,

Therefore you can experiment with diverse flavors as well.

Let’s start!




Ingredients for making coffee latte


Freshly Brewed Coffee: it is essential to use espresso if we want to reach that

desirable aroma, but any strongly brewed coffee will do the job. 


Any Type of Milk: we recommend steamed milk, for following the original recipe.

If not, then you can use dairy-free, fat-free, whole, or skim milk.

It is totally up to you and your preferences.

To flavor it up a bit, you can add some sweetened creamer for your convenience.




The only thing you need to make your homemade coffee latte

is a kitchen whisk perfectly suited to your favorite coffee mug. 


No machines, no additional equipment, no expensive tools!

You will need around 2 ounces of dark-roasted beans

for the brewing process. 

Again, if you have any other beans that you prefer, 

Pick the ones of your choice and make an espresso shot.


Let the coffee brew itself while you heat the milk for 30 to 45 seconds. 

After the milk has been heated, take your whisk and 

start whisking back and front until you reach the frothy texture of the milk. 


That takes up to around 30 seconds or less.

When the espresso shot is over, sip it into your mug.

At this point, the ratio is 1/3 of coffee and 2/3 milk. 


You can make the coffee latte however you want. 

Just follow the given ratio. 

When it comes to ounces,

some standards that most cafe places are using is a double shot of espresso

with approximately 5-6 ounces of milk.

This will give you around 10 to 12 ounces of coffee latte.


After you dispense your coffee into your mug, 

slowly pour the frothed milk over it. 

A traditional latte will look pretty much the same

after the foam rises to the surface of your cup.


Desired Flavors


Chocolate Caffee Latte – According to your preferences add 1 or 2  tablespoons

of chocolate syrup before the step of heating your preferred milk. 


Vanilla Coffee Latte – When the milk is heated, add ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract,

and then pour your brewed coffee over it.


Other toppings –  cinnamon, cardamom, maple syrup, ginger, cocoa powder, and raw honey. 


Sip it, drink it, and enjoy your own homemade Cafe Latte!
