Our go-to recipe for a homemade maple latte!


  • 2 shots espresso (2 ounces)
  • ½ cup whole milk (4 ounces)
  • 1–2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  • Using an espresso machine, make 2 shots of espresso; transfer to a mug.
  • Add milk to small frothing pitcher. Insert frothing wand into milk, just below the surface of the milk. Heat and froth milk until it's nearly doubled in size.
  • Lower frothing wand further into milk and angle towards side of pitcher. Froth milk so it spins in a vortex-like motion. Froth and heat until milk is about 150ºF and forth is thick.
  • Tap milk pitcher on counter to release any large air bubbles. Slowly pour into mug over espresso, making sure to get all of the foam.
  • If you do not have a frother, you can also use a hand-held frother.



Fresh whole milk works best for homemade lattes. 2% milk can work, but it won't be as luscious. For a vegan option, try oat milk.
