Our recipe for this week features our Flavour of the Month - Colonna’s Laderas Honey. This coffee is so complex that we decided to pair it up with ingredients that would take it up a notch. We didn’t want to overpower the inherent flavours of the coffee, but instead contrast it with the flavours and aromas of lavender and just a bit of organic honey to round up the beverage. This Honey Lavender Oat Milk Latte may take some time to whip up though it’s so worth it!
- 60g espresso brewed from 1 capsule
- 180g of steamed Oat Milk (for this one we enjoyed Oatly’s Barista Edition for the extra texture)
- 20g Lavender Simple Syrup (instructions below)
- A pinch of dried lavender buds for garnish
Lavender Simple Syrup:
- 3 tablespoons of dried lavender buds
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup honey
Prep the Lavender Simple Syrup first before you assemble the drink. Boil the water and lavender buds together then stir in the sugar and honey to dissolve. Simmer for 15 minutes and then drain. While that syrup is cooling, pop one capsule into your capsule machine and brew a 60g liquid of espresso over 20g of lavender simple syrup. Stir. Top it up with your steamed and textured Oat Milk depending on how strong you like your coffee to be. Feel free to garnish with some dried lavender buds for the aromatics, and dress with a bit of honey if you like things sweeter.
