Brew a strong cup (actually 3/4 cup) of coffee.
- 3/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
1/2 vanilla bean
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon brown sugar
cinnamon or nutmeg - for garnish
Slice the 1/2 vanilla bean lengthwise. Place the vanilla bean, milk and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil - stirring occasionally. Remove from heat as soon as it starts boiling. Set aside and let steep for 10 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, bend the milk mixture until frothy - about 20 seconds. Alternatively, you can place the milk mixture in a standard blender and blend on high until foamy.
Pour the coffee into a serving cup. Top with the vanilla-infused milk. Top with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg.
Treat yourself to a special coffee topped with frothy vanilla-infused milk with just a hint of sweetness.
