COFFEE! America's favorite thing to drink on any given morning. Once upon a time I was a big coffee drinker myself but when I started getting bad headaches from the caffeine, I had to let it go for the more migraine friendly green or flavored tea.

Before you get bored and click away from this post, let me quickly say that this is not about to be a lesson in "How Many Types Of Coffee Can You Name" but if you like the taste of lattes and pay to get them at your favorite cafe because you don't have the exact coffee making machine that will make you your own at home, this post is for you.

Now bear in mind that I've already said this is the ratchet way I make a latte at home (no offence to those who take latte drinking super serious) so you only need the basics to recreate this popular coffee. 

What You Need:

  • Your choice of coffee
  • Your choice of creamer or milk
  • An empty bottle or container
  • Whip cream (optional)


  • Scoop desired amount of coffee into coffee maker and set mug in place with 2 tsp sugar in it
  • Brew coffee and set aside when ready
  • In an empty bottle, pour in same amount of milk or creamer and shake vigorously for 30 seconds
  • Pour into your brewed coffee and heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds to retain heat
  • When hot enough for you, spray on some whip cream  and enjoy!

Before adding whip cream, your coffee should appear fluffy like this image. You can enjoy this way without the whip cream because it's already creamy and delicious. However, another alternative is to slightly tilt your coffee cup as you gently pour in more milk for even extra creaminess and to get those cool designs that make us get them in the first place.

There you have it ladies and gents! My ratchet way of making a latte at home! Naturally nothing beats having the original but when you don't feel like spending the extra $5 or $7 at brunch for your favorite guilty pleasure, make one yourself at home. Who needs to know how it was made anyway?😜

Until next time girls,
