- Brew coffee. Heat milk, almost to a boil.
- Pour coffee and hot milk, preferably simultaneously, into large cups or mugs.
- Sweeten to taste. If you like the frothy finish that traditional steam infusers give to cafe au lait, whirl the hot milk in a blender (or use a whisk or hand mixer) before filling cups.
To be honest, I just put a cup of milk in the microwave, take out warm milk, add a table spoon of granulated coffee, (maxwell, nescafe..any will do) add sugar for taste, best cafe au lait you'll ever taste.
Tres bien! Delicious and authentic. French coffee is brewed thicker than American coffee, but it's not espresso, either. This gets you pretty close to the dark, strong coffee flavor that can stand up to the amount of hot milk. There are few things better than a bowl or mug of this and a fresh hot croissant for a special breakfast.
