Espresso Embrace

  • Print:


  • 1 shot illy Espresso
  • 2-3 tsp coconut milk (10 - 15 ml)
  • 1 tsp liquid sugar (5 ml)
  • Fresh heavy cream
  • Powdered star anise

A specialty coffee worthy of the "Arabian Nights" with aromas reminiscent of the Orient and the Tropics. Espresso embraces a dollop of coconut milk and meets the spicy notes of star anise dusted on a soft layer of whipped cream - a true adventure for the senses.

  1. Prepare the espresso into a small glass
  2. Steam the coconut milk in a small pitcher, using the team wand of your espresso machine. Add liquid sugar* if you prefer a sweeter drink.
  3. Pour the warm coconut milk into the espresso
  4. Whip the fresh heavy cream with a beater or in a shaker and blend it into the coffee.
  5. Finish with a dusting of star anise and serve.

*To make liquid sugar, boil equal parts of sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Cool and refrigerate.
