How to Prepare
Rinse the cup with hot water so that the porcelain or glass won’t cool down your beverage on impact.
Dose your ground coffee into your portafilter.
Tap the portafilter handle gently on the tamp mat to distribute the ground coffee evenly, or – if you have one – use a distribution tool.
The next step is to tamp. Again, the aim is to remove any air pockets and ensure the coffee is completely level.
Finally, you’re ready to insert the portafilter handle into the group head and start brewing your espresso! Make sure to begin brewing immediately, otherwise the heat might cause the surface of the coffee to burn.
Using a milk frother machine, warm the milk and caramel sauce together. The machine will melt the caramel and fluff the milk at the same time.
Pour the milk and caramel mixture over the coffee in the mug.
You can serve the coffee as-is, but if you want to make it feel extra special, garnish it with freshly whipped cream and an extra drizzle of caramel sauce.
