The taste that gets you started up! :)

It's getting really cold and all I can think of is sitting in a fluffy cozy blanket with my woollies on watching tv or reading while sipping warm satisfying drinks to soothe the winter woes. I love coffee in winter, especially the creamy, froth mustache giving kinds ;). While growing up my cousin and sister would always make a certain type of coffee I had labelled as 'special coffee'. We would all sit huddled together and chat away while one of us "whisked" away the coffee, sometimes taking turns every 5 minutes. Here's my recipe for making this "special" coffee simply known as beaten coffee. I think the process of making it just adds that 'special' touch making it such a simple yet yummy winter drink. Enjoy! :)

Classic Beaten Coffee

Things You'll Need:

  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoons of water
1 cup milk
A pinch of cocoa/chocolate powder (optional)

In a cup put in the ingredients together; coffee, sugar and water.

Take a table spoon and start whisking the ingredients vigorously in a clockwise direction

In about 3, to 4 minutes you will see the mixture turning into a brown paste like consistency. keep on "beating" the coffee till it turns into a golden brownish frothy fluffy paste. This usually take around 15-20 mins for the best results. If it's dry, add a drop or two of water accordingly

Boil some milk and pour it into your favorite cup

Now add a dollop of this coffee froth paste into the cup and stir gently. swirling it slowly till it tuns into a creamy frothy coffee

you can add a dash of cocoa powder on top if you like

mmmmmm winter goodness!
