Delicious beverage. I used 1 ounce of amaretto liquor instead of the syrup. I did how ever use the almond syrup and it was just a delightful after dinner treat. Made for the Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe.

Utterly exquisite. This is a rich and indulgent cup of coffee. I'll admit to not using espresso but strong brewed chocolate flavored coffee with the almond flavor syrup (1 ounce of). I guess I haven't gotten the knack of steaming milk without getting froth. I ended up putting a twist of whipped topping into the milk froth where it promptly sank, lol. Still tasted GREAT!
