Enjoy barista-quality iced coffee, with the touch of a button, and get creative with delicious, creamy mocktails.
If you’re a coffee lover, you know the struggle of perfecting an elaborate iced coffee only to have the microfoam dissolve into the drink, leaving you with a disappointing, beige liquid. But don’t lose heart! Starbucks introduced a game-changing solution in 2014 with the introduction of cold microfoam. Since then, coffee enthusiasts worldwide have been inspired to create frothy toppings of their own.
As a relatively new addition to coffee history, cold microfoam has taken the world by storm, and for good reason. It adds an extra layer of texture and flavour to your drink, elevating your coffee experience to a whole new level.
Cold foam is a simple and delicious way to top an iced coffee. To make it at home, combine milk and simple syrup in a long, narrow jar and use a hand-held frother to whip the mixture for about 20 seconds. For added flavour, consider adding a dash of vanilla extract or a flavoured syrup like pumpkin spice, mint, cinnamon, or chocolate.
When it comes to hot foam, whole milk is best for achieving a substantial froth, as the creaminess dwindles with lower fat content. However, the opposite holds true for cold foam, where less fat is better. Regardless of the milk or frothing tool you use, the key to a perfect cold microfoam is maintaining a cold temperature.
Creating a perfectly pillowy cold microfoam has historically been challenging, but De’Longhi’s LatteCrema Cool Technology has solved this problem. Its Eletta Explore machine features a one-touch cold-milk carafe that textures milk at low temperature to create velvety smooth microfoam, that supports syrups and toppings. With this machine, anyone can create elaborate cold beverages at home with ease.
While non-dairy alternatives like soy, oat, and almond milk typically don’t hold up well for cold microfoam, the LatteCrema Cool Technology is compatible with all of the above. This innovative technology allows for creations that are just as creamy as those made with standard milk. For a delicious morning or afternoon pick-me-up, try the Cold Vegan Tiki Latte. This recipe uses almond syrup, cinnamon powder, grated ginger, and lime, resulting in a spiced, zesty mocktail. Give it a try and invigorate your day.
