To get that frothy coffee moustache, here’s a step by step perfect coffee recipe you can try at home:

For the perfect cup of coffee, you’ll need:

50 ml Hot boiling water

1 cup Milk


Step 1

First, Add half a teaspoon of coffee powder and half a teaspoon of sugar in a mug.

Using a whisker or a spoon, mix coffee and sugar thoroughly with water. Keep stirring the coffee and sugar mix continuously until you see the coffee turning into a lighter tone. Continue beating the coffee mix for three to four minutes. Your hand may start to hurt while beating it. But what’s pleasure without pain? Take a break for a minute and continue mixing it again for a perfect coffee.

Step 4

Keep whisking the coffee until it turns into a bubbly froth. By now the color of the coffee mixed with the water should turn lighter. Keep it aside.

Step 5

Now boil a cup of milk in a pan. Turn off the flame once the milk bubbles up. You can boil milk in an electric kettle too.

Step 6

Take a glass jar with a lid. Pour the milk into it and close the lid. Make sure the jar has an airtight lid and won’t spill the milk. Shake the jar up and down for 2 minutes. Milk will foam up when shaken in the jar just like a coffee machine does.

Now Pour half or one third cup of milk to the frothy coffee mix in the mug.

Step 8

Stir it all with a spoon. Now, pour the remaining milk froth on top of the coffee mug. Channeling your inner barista, try to make a design you want.
