What’s better than a creamy, steaming cup of cafe au lait? Here’s how to make it at home…the French way.


  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) strong dark roast coffee (like Moka Pot)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) steamed whole milk (or oat milk for dairy free)


  1. Make coffee using a Moka Pot, or strong dark roast coffee using your method of choice (French press, Chemex, Aeropress, or other).
  2. Steam the milk with an espresso machine (stretching the milk to 20 to 25% in height), or froth the milk with a frother, French press or whisk.
  3. Pour the coffee in a cup. Add the steamed milk and serve immediately.
