Instructions:

Preparing the Espresso Base:

  • Begin by grinding your coffee beans to a fine consistency, similar to table salt.
  • Load the coffee grounds into the portafilter of your espresso machine, distributing them evenly.
  • Extract two shots of espresso by passing approximately 1/2 of hot water through the coffee grounds. This should take about 25-30 seconds.

Creating the Pistachio Milk Mixture:

  • In a separate container, combine 1 cup of milk with 2 tablespoons of pistachio syrup. Stir well to ensure even distribution.
  • Optionally, add 1-2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to the mixture for extra sweetness. Adjust the quantity to suit your taste preferences.

Assembling the Iced Pistachio Latte:

  • Fill a tall glass or coffee tumbler with ice cubes. The amount of ice can be adjusted according to how strong or diluted you prefer your latte.
  • Pour the freshly brewed espresso over the ice.
  • Slowly and carefully pour the pistachio milk mixture over the espresso, allowing the layers to form naturally.

Garnishing (Optional):

  • If desired, top your Iced Pistachio Latte with a dollop of whipped cream.
  • Sprinkle crushed pistachios over the whipped cream for an added crunch and aesthetic appeal.

Serve:

  • Insert a long spoon or stirring rod into the glass and gently mix the layers to combine the flavors.
  • Serve your Iced Pistachio Latte immediately and savor the delightful blend of coffee, pistachio, and creamy milk.
