This is a classic with a salty twist! I use rich cocoa powder, sweet coconut sugar, and a little sea salt for the flavoring. Then, I use our Nespresso for the shots, frothy raw milk, and sprinkle some Maldron’s flake salt on top.

Tips for making the perfect fall coffee drink at home

Perfect fall coffee drinks at home

  1. Grind your own beans
    Freshly ground beans taste so much better than pre-ground coffee.
  2. Buy organic, fair-trade coffee
    This is important. Coffee that isn’t organic, fair trade has been found to have other things (besides coffee, they’ve even found cockroaches) ground up with it.
  3. Wait for the bloom
    When making a french press, you want to pour the water in the french press 30 seconds off the boil, pour a few inches of water in and wait for the coffee to bloom, then pour the rest in.
  4. Use filtered water
    There’s something about all the added chlorine, fluoride, and other harmful additives in tap water that make your coffee taste off. Use filtered water for a pure-tasting cup of coffee. We use a Berkey.
