Top coffee tip:
Want a frothy cappuccino but don’t have the equipment? Grab yourself a Barista style Oat Milk, make an espresso in your favourite coffee mug (you can either use a coffee machine or mix coffee granules with little hot water – about the amount you get in an espresso) and shake the oat milk like your life depends on it. Pour the milk into a microwavable jug (about 200 ml) and it should pour nice and frothy. Stick in the microwave for about a minute and pour into your coffee shot and voila! Optional: Sprinkle with a little chocolate powder 😍
