In my not-so-humble opinion, all really good Saturday mornings involve cappuccino. Preferably with a snoozing Dog DebtFreeJD lying at my feet (although that rarely happens because Dog DebtFreeJD prefers to begin weekend mornings by jumping on my head, and then tears around the apartment like a million bees/a-person-wanting-to-give-her-a-bath is after her).
Luckily, homemade and cheap cappuccino is so easy even I can do it. You will need:*
Other, in other words:
- A way to make coffee – I use a water boiler, a coffee grinder and a french press, but everyone has a way that works for them.
- A way to make the foam – I use that little silver doohickey at the bottom of the photo. I bought it at Ikea a long time ago for some small amount of money.
Then make your coffee. While you’re making your coffee, warm up a small amount of milk – we don’t have a microwave, so I use a saucepan, but this is easiest in the microwave (maybe HIGH for about a minute?) After the milk is warm (but not boiling) froth it with the doohickey until it reaches desired consistency. Then pour the foam into your favorite mug, carefully add the coffee in such a way that you don’t deflate all your foam, and voila! If you’re feeling really fancy, you can add some ground cinnamon.
One good Saturday morning, coming up.
