HOW TO MAKE

Pistachio Latte

STEP 01

Prepare espresso shot.

We recommend brewing Starbucks® Espresso Roast whole bean coffee by first grinding the beans followed by brewing via an espresso machine. If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can use a stovetop moka pot to make espresso-like coffee. To learn more, read our stovetop moka pot guide here.

 

You can also brew Starbucks® Espresso Roast capsules by Nespresso® for authentic café-style espresso.

STEP 02

Add the pistachio syrup and browned butter, stirring gently.

STEP 03

Froth milk and pour over the coffee. Learn more about enhancing your frothing skills by visiting our milk frothing guide.
