- First, steam the milk. Heat 1 cup of milk in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Let the milk simmer until bubbles form around the edges, but don’t boil the milk. Remove the pan from heat and set it on a flat surface.
- Next, whip the milk with an electric mixer, increasing the speed as the milk begins to thicken. Continue mixing until you get the desired volume of froth.
- Now, brew the coffee. If you are using a coffeemaker, use 2 tablespoons of Folgers French Roast Coffee per 5 to 6 ounces of water. If you are using a 4-cup capacity French press, use 8 tablespoons of coffee. See more tips on how to make coffee in a French press.
- Once the coffee is finished brewing, it’s time to make your drink. For the basic latte, combine 3 ounces of espresso coffee with 7 ounces of steamed milk.
