The Barista Wannabe : Vienna Coffee

20131225-224229.jpg
Maybe I should just admit it. I don’t like black coffee. Nope, not even when it’s topped with whipped cream like this Vienna Coffee. I probably should have added more whipped cream. Anyway, Coffee with milk and sugar anytime!

But I must say, this looks beautiful. Because I made it! Haha!

The Barista Wannabe : Kopicino

20131128-100347.jpg

Not typically what a barista at a fancy coffee place would make. More like what a burly “mamak” (Indian man) would make at your friendly neighborhood coffee shop all around Singapore.

Kopicino is coffee suspended in milk. Condensed milk in hot water and then “pull” or pour from one pitcher to another until frothy. Then slowly, I mean sloooooowwwly, pour in the brewed coffee. That makes coffee float in the frothy milk. So beautiful!

The Barista Wannabe : Latte Art

20131127-103339.jpg
A feeble attempt. This is a really bad spiderweb latte art. I call this Intergalactic Cosmic Spiderweb Latte Art.

-hazrock, see you latte!

The Barista Wannabe : Caramel FrappĂ©

20131126-061710.jpg

…and with a homemade caramel sauce, no less! I had some leftover from making a banana cream pie a few weeks ago. Why not use it up eh? It got really loud when blending ice cubes in the blender. But who cares when what I got after all that ruckus was a cold, delicious and sweet coffee drink.
Goodbye Big Green Coffee Company! I now make my own frappes!

-hazrock, loud is my middle name

The Barista Wannabe : Soy Latte

20131125-101354.jpg

I’ve always loved sweetened soy milk, either hot or cold. I must have drank gallons of it during my 2nd pregnancy. Blame it on cravings. Hah! As a result, my daughter, now 6, has a fair and really smooth complexion. So the old wives’ tale is true. Drinking soy milk can result in a lovely baby. Coincidence? Probably…

Anyway I’ve never thought of drinking coffee with soy milk. After trying it, my verdict is : Nahh… I rather have cow juice with my coffee.

-hazrock, mooooo!

The Barista Wannabe : Pumpkin Spice Latte

20131125-060244.jpg

Love the wonderful aroma of this. I made my own pumpkin pie spice (allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger). Although I don’t have the fall season where I live and I don’t celebrate the holidays this time of year, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy this warm and comforting drink.

The Barista Wannabe : The French Press

20131124-212654.jpg

I recently acquired a sexy piece of kitchen equipment : The Bodum French Press. I love drinking coffee, and in a bid to try and impress myself, I thought hmmm why not make my own espresso?
I know most, or all, baristas at coffee places use an espresso machine to serve their customers. But I don’t have any customers and it just makes sense economically to buy a single serving French press rather than a big huge machine. I will post more of me and Bodum’s adventures soon. Stay tuned.
