Well, it’s official. We have a ratified contract and we are officially building a house!! Exciting and crazy times ahead. I can’t wait to blog about this entire process; the ups, the downs, and everything in between! In the next 30 days, we will be meeting with our structural designer to go over the structure of the house and see if there’s anything we need to change i.e. layout of cabinets, size of room, etc. Then, in a couple months, we get to meet the interior designers to pick out all our finishes. We know exactly what we want so hopefully there won’t be a ton of this and that decisions. Although, I’m pretty sure there will be little stuff like, “would you like this door handle to have a swirl detail or a filigree detail?” haha
So now that we decided to build a house and we aren’t going to be moving for another year or more, I pulled the trigger on an espresso machine and I’ve been making lattes every single day. My recent favorite is this honey cream latte. I had a version of this at a local coffee shop and I love the subtle honey and floral notes. It’s slightly sweet and it compliments the espresso so well.
I’m not a pro on the foam so I used the Nespresso Aeroccino+. To be honest, I probably will always use the Nespresso Aeroccino+ for all my foam. It’s so easy to use and I get perfectly warm milk and lots of foam in less than 30 seconds. I put it in the canister, press a button, and foam in 30 seconds! Jason loves using it too :) he has found a way to make it so it warms his milk but gives slightly less foam since he doesn’t want it mile high like I do :)
Behold, my new favorite latte, the honey cream latte. Go make yourself some and prepare to fall in love!
Look at that foam!! Thanks Nespresso :)
Honey Cream Latte
- 2 teaspoons honey, plus more for topping
- Steamed almond milk and foam, or any milk you love
- 2 shots of espresso, or more
- At the bottom of a mug, add honey.
- Pour a little steamed/warm milk into the mug and stir to mix in honey.
- Add the shots of espresso then pour the rest of the steamed milk in along with the foam. Drizzle honey over the top.
Nespresso kindly sent me the Aeroccino+ for my latte usage!
