Since the beginning of time (aka since we started this wonderful company), traditional lattes have been one of our favorite drinks. Is there really anything quite as nice as a Deruta mug filled with a shot of espresso and topped with steamed milk? Well… we’ve really been digging our Tea & Tisane collection lately—so we combined our love of latte with our Golden Tumeric Herbal Tisane to create this lat-tea. Find the recipe below from our Tea Consultant, Alexis Siemons.
La Colombe Golden Milk Latte
This golden hued soothing sip is rich (thank you, coconut oil), warming, spiced and just the perfect amount of sweet. And because it’s caffeine free you can sip it from sunrise to sunset. For a spicier sip add a pinch of ground or freshly diced ginger with the sachet and cinnamon sticks.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
- 1 La Colombe Golden Turmeric Sachet
- 1 cinnamon stick
- pinch of sea salt
- pinch of freshly ground black peppercorns
- ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ teaspoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
Heat milk over medium heat until it just comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and add the Golden Turmeric Sachet, cinnamon stock, pepper, salt and vanilla extract. Let steep over low heat for 7 minutes. Remove the sachet and cinnamon stick. Stir in the coconut oil and honey until dissolved. Whisk until frothy, pour into a cup and enjoy while warm (or if you have a milk frother you can froth the beverage in your cup). For the frothiest texture, carefully add steeped almond milk, coconut oil and honey into a blender, blend until very frothy, and then pour the warm frothed latte into your cup.
I’ll try it for sure!! Thanks!!
I will definitely make this recipe in the future.
For upcoming Valentine’s Day, I would like to try to get that effect in a coffee pic on your Facebook account (maybe, April Fool’s 2015?). The color was a beautiful, intense hot pink on top of the coffee and the heart on top in regular, white milk. Do I just need to buy any food coloring and experiment or will I not be able to get that color intensity at home?
For the pink latte, you’re going to need some food coloring or photoshop. ?
Online, I found Barista Dritan Alsela of Germany has some beautiful colors (perfect for all of the different holidays) in his YouTube how-to videos. Here’s hoping my fuchsia does not turn light pink (I am going cheat a little and use some brightly colored sugar too.) Thanks for the reply.
Hey fellow LC coffee lovers: (You probably already know, but, just in case.) Near two Philly LC locations (near Dilworth, maybe on one wall of the Center City Friends’ school/meeting house and in Fishtown right on Frankford Avenue, a/k/a Route 13), you can see amazing wall murals done by artist Shepard Fairey (Lotus Diamond and Amira, a woman studying to be an architect), the same artist who created the two really wonderful posters for Saturday’s Women’s March (one poster is shown on the LC instagram account). Shepard is the artist that also created the very well known images / iconographs for Rock the Vote and President Obama’s Hope artwork.
Bruh. Brown people been doing this for centuries as a home remedy…don’t think it’s anything new. And we make it a LOT tastier too, with no crap like vanilla or salt or coconut oil (all of which, when combined with milk – especially almond milk – destroy the antibacterial power of turmeric powder). #stopwhitepeople2k17
I was just reading online about Philly’s first pay-what-you-want restaurant called Eat Cafe in its Mantua section and, guess which coffee company provides the customers with discounted coffee according to the writer – LC! My point is this group can often be found helping their community and not even advertising their good works.
Hey LC, that is so great that your teas received positive reviews from the Wall Street Journal!
We were pumped about it! Have you tried any of our teas yet?
Yes, I especially love hot beverages in the East Coast winter months.
No! But I will try.
