There is something about a well made latte that makes dessert taste even better. We used to have one of those fancy espresso machines that claimed to make strong smooth espresso and perfectly steamed milk. I think we used it twice and then gave up. The process was complicated and the clean-up not worth it. Now, we use a traditional espresso maker and heat the milk in a pot on the stove. Sometimes, when I'm craving a mocha (I refuse to pay over $3 for one at Starbucks unless I'm out with friends) I add some cocoa and a little sugar. Tonight, it's a latte with a side of carrot cake. Yummy!
