SAIDA Coffee Cream Recipe
The original recipe for coffee cream, which comes from Naples, calls for the use of milk or cream, but in the version we
SAIDA Gusto Espresso
wants to offer you, we will not use any to make a light, but still delicious version, suitable for all tastes.
Below are the steps to prepare a perfect, mouth-watering coffee creamer in no time and with only 3 ingredients: water, sugar and a good instant coffee in capsules or pods.
Ingredients for 4 persons:
- Ground coffee: 10 gr.
- Sugar: 100 gr.
- Water (cold from the refrigerator): 80 ml
In a bowl pour all the ingredients: your best coffee ground, the sugar and the well-cold water.
Start whipping the coffee creamer with an electric beater or hand whisk until it forms a light foam on the surface.
Whip the ingredients for 5 minutes until they have a light, creamy consistency.
Check that it has reached the right creaminess by turning the bowl upside down, as you would for stiff egg whites: if the coffee cream remains firm and does not fall out, it will be ready to serve!
For those with a sweet tooth: if you just can’t resist giving up cream, just drizzle a dollop of it on top of the glass, and maybe garnish it with a little cocoa powder and some hazelnut crumbs!
