Il Caffe Manaresi is a family owned roasting company since 1898 in the Tuscany region of Italy. The Manaresi Gold stands out with a smooth but challenging flavor, providing a lingering aftertaste even in those recipes and coming with hints of hazelnut and cocoa without being flavored. The Manaresi Gold is an all in one talent, you can use it for espresso shots, but also for superautomatic machines, drip coffees and cold brews as well.

If your doctor or soul tells you not to using whipped cream, just steam the milk with a lot of bubbles by keeping the steamwand tip slightly above and below the surface of the milk in the pitchter, with a 3.5% milk you should get stiff foam on top of the milk. Pour first the milk underneath into the glass and later scoop the stiff foam on top of the layers like you do with the whipped cream.
