Orange You Thirsting For A Cappuccino?

Posted by Sebastian Little on

On a lark, I decided to use an orange for a cappuccino cup. I really wanted to do it for the photograph but was delighted to find out the drink was superb. Here's how I did it...

Start with a nice round orange & cut in half.

Use small sharp paring knife to cut fruit away from peel.

Use a spoon to remove all remaining fruit and skin leaving clean 1/2 orange

Pour espresso...

Ready to pour steamed milk...

Try it - I think you will be glad you did...

Checking out the expensive and trend conscious coffee at my local market, I was not too surprised to see the roast dates were quite old. At least these roasters stamp the bags.
