  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
