How to make a coffee bonbon at home?
First of all we must prepare an espresso coffee, approximately 30 ml, and we must reserve it. If you don’t know which coffee to use, we recommend that you visit our shop and choose the one you like best.
We have tried, particularly with coffee capsules, and we have obtained a delicious result. If you use coffee in capsules you will need a good coffee machine to prepare the coffee. In our shop you will find some good coffee machines, so we recommend you to have a look at them.
This drink is usually served in a transparent glass, as the aim is to be able to appreciate the different layers that form between the milk and the coffee. To do this, simply preheat the glass and add the cold condensed milk to the bottom of the coffee bonbon glass. Immediately after this, pour the coffee in very carefully, so that we can create the layers and have a real coffee bonbon with two colours.
TIP: In some sophisticated coffee shops they have given the recipe a twist by creating a third layer. There is no need for complicated techniques to create this third layer. Just add about 50 ml of milk foam and finish with a sprinkling of cinnamon or cocoa. If you don’t know how to make milk foam, we recommend reading this article, you will find everything you need to prepare a good coffee.
