Spiced Saffron Coffee
Saffron is the world's most expensive spice -- and for good reason! Here's how to make a decadent saffron coffee that bursts with complex, spiced flavor. Add a little honey and milk for a balanced cup.
Espresso or coffee maker
Milk steamer or saucepan and whisk
or ½ cup brewed coffee
Pull two shots of espresso or make ½ cup of strong coffee. Pour the coffee or espresso into your mug.
Steam your milk using a steamer, steam wand, or a saucepan and whisk. You want it to be warm and frothy.
Pour the milk on top of your espresso, holding back a little milk foam, and then add the honey. Roll the saffron threads in your fingers over the mug to crush them. Then give the mixture a good stir.
Spoon on your milk foam. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon or a little more saffron if you’d like. That’s it -- enjoy your delicious saffron coffee!
