The Neil Gaiman Latte

Courtesy of Joan of Dark and the Strange Brew here is a great new caffeine drink for those of you who, like me, are huge Neil Gaiman fans:

The Neil Gaiman Latte:

  • Take 1 Cacao Bean per shot, grind with your espresso
  • Pull shot, should take between 18-22 seconds to pull.
  • While your shot is pulling, steam some whole milk to 140 degrees.
  • Your milk should spin, leaving you with a nice, glassy sheen on top.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon into your cup, then pour your shot into cup.
  • Add milk, attempting a little leaf art if you're so inclined.
  • Drizzle about 1 tsp of honey around the edge of your latte, followed by a half packet of Raw Sugar.

Enjoy while curled up on the couch with a copy of The Graveyard Book, Sandman, or Anansi Boys. Once the caffeine kicks in, stay up all night writing or painting your house. Whichever.

You can see a pic of this, leaf design and all, at the Strange Brew website. now all I need is my comfy chair and fuzzy slippers.
