Okay, this post might seem dumb to you but it’s 100% needed because, I kid you not, I get at least 3-4 DM’s a day on Instagram what I’m making and/or if I have a recipe for it.

If you don’t follow me on Instagram then you won’t know what I’m talking about, but every single morning for the past three years I have been doing a coffee story.

I decided, on a whim, to film myself pouring my espresso into ice and milk and mixing it together.

I did it because I thought it looked cool to see the espresso swirl into the milk.


My daily coffee story is like ASMR for people.

I literally have people asking where it is if I don’t do it (hence why I do it daily).

I get messages about how mesmerizing and soothing it is.

I absolutely love that so many people are loving this daily thing.

I also love that people notice the smallest things about me.

Nail color changes, shirts, hair, etc.

Also, if you go to my Instagram page, I have a coffee story highlights and if you tap through it, it’s funny to see the seasons and my weight change, haha

I wore like frumpy-ish shirts and then it progressively gets smaller and tighter.


Since everyone asks for this recipe, I’m going to post it below.

It’s literally three ingredients.

What espresso maker do you use?

I use this espresso maker to pull my espresso. We’ve had this espresso maker for 3.5 years and we LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

One of the best kitchen appliances. I love freshly ground beans every morning.

The grinder is attached to the machine and this also means you can pick and choose whatever beans you want to try.

We love Ceremony Roaster’s Mass Appeal and have been using it for years.

What kind of milk do you use?

I switch up my milk from time to time. If I drink whole milk, I will always do Fairlife because I love that it’s high protein, low sugar, and lactose-free!

I make my own almond milk and cashew milk so I’ll use those too.

Just totally depends on my mood!

Where do you get your drink tumblers?

Found them on Amazon! They’re double-walled so no condensation!

Here are other espresso recipes that I love:

Watching the espresso mix into the milk is the best feeling! We have the same espresso machine but I can't seem to get my crema as thick and creamy as yours! Mine always comes out watery, I'm guessing I need to adjust the grind and maybe try a new bean.

Yeah, maybe you gotta pull it for longer if it's getting watery!
