Cafe au Lait is a French coffee drink that combines equal parts of brewed coffee and hot milk. It's a simple yet delicious drink that can be enjoyed any time of the day. In this recipe, we'll show you how to make a perfect cup of Cafe au Lait that's rich, creamy, and satisfying.


  • 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar (optional)


  1. Brew your coffee using your preferred method. We recommend using a French press or drip coffee maker for best results.
  2. While your coffee is brewing, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Be sure not to let it boil.
  3. Once the milk is hot, remove it from the heat and use a frother or whisk to create foam. You want the milk to be about twice the volume and have a thick, velvety texture.
  4. Pour the coffee into a large mug.
  5. Add sugar if desired and stir until it dissolves.
  6. Pour the hot milk into the coffee, holding back the foam with a spoon.
  7. Spoon the foam on top of the coffee and milk mixture.
  8. Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top for added flavor and enjoy!


  • For a stronger coffee flavor, use espresso instead of regular brewed coffee.
  • You can use any type of milk you prefer, such as almond or soy milk, but the texture of the foam may vary.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar to your taste preference.


Cafe au Lait is a classic coffee drink that's easy to make and delicious to enjoy. With this recipe, you can make a perfect cup of Cafe au Lait right in your own kitchen. Give it a try and savor the rich, creamy taste that this French-inspired coffee has to offer!
