Instantly Delicious Café-style Coffee with a Twist

Getting instant coffee just right, every single time.

Preparation Time: 5 min


instant coffee (I use Davidoff Café Espresso Dark Roast)
Monin Hazelnut Syrup (le sirop de Monin Noisette)
sugar to taste


small saucepan
measuring cups and spoons
milk frother
coffee cups


1 Proportion is the key to making this recipe successful. For each cup of coffee, heat 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan over a medium-low flame.

2 Preheat the coffee cups in a microwave for 30 seconds. This keeps the coffee warm for longer.

3 To each cup, add 1.5 teaspoons of coffee and sugar to taste.

4 Once the milk is heated, strain one tablespoon into each cup. Straining will make sure the milk is smooth without any cream.

5 Add 1 tsp hazelnut syrup and mix well with the milk frother until a light brown paste is formed. Then add another tablespoon of strained milk and mix well.

6 Divide the rest of the milk into the cups through the strainer and mix well with the frother until a thick foam is formed over the surface.

7 Enjoy!
