Turkish Caffè Lattes


Kéan Coffee’s Turkish Caffè Lattes
One day my friend, Y, raved about Kéan Coffee’s Turkish Caffè Lattes.  Since we have similar taste in food, I tried one even though I usually drink black coffee or espresso.  It consists of 2 shots of espresso, cane syrup, artfully poured steamed milk, and cardamom sprinkled on top.  They’re to die for…

Since Kéan Coffee isn’t close to where I live, I decided to replicate the latte at home.  Here’s what I came up with:

2 shots of espresso (approximately 1/3 cup)
1/2 cup steamed milk
1/2 teaspoon simple syrup or sugar, or to taste (see note)
sprinkle of cardamom

Note-Simple syrup can be made by combining equal parts of sugar and water in a pan.  Heat until the sugar dissolves.  It may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 month

If you really want to make it easy, simply top a double shot caffé latte with cardamom and add sugar to taste!
