Black Forest Latté

“After buying a stove top espresso pot to make espresso for Pietro’s Tiramisu, I began experimenting with my own hot espresso drinks. Forget Starbucks! You can make your own mochas and lattés at home cheaper and they taste much better. Eventually I wanted to learn more about espresso, so I bought the book this recipe came in. Great overall espresso book and some great espresso drinks, including this one!” – April Ferre
