We’re sharing this for the holiday season, since it’s warm and comforting, but you can make it any time! As our love for our Harry Potter Movie Marathon Weekend has grown, so has our selection of recipes. And this one always makes the list! As much as we love straight Butterbeer, it can be pretty sweet, and sometimes, well, we just need the caffeine  It’s also delicious iced, so if you’re more of an iced coffee person, so, feel free to switch it up. 

Butterbeer Coffee Latte

This Butterbeer Latte is the perfect mix of sweet buttery flavor and espresso. We generally use our Moka Pot and illy coffee when making espresso, but we recently got a Nespresso machine and we have to say we are big fans.  However you like to make your espresso, we think blonde espresso goes especially well with this, but feel free to use whatever you prefer. If you don’t have a moka pot, you can also use strong coffee ( just add a higher ratio of coffee grounds to your water). Here are some blonde espresso options to make things easy.

Butterbeer Latte Ingredients

If you love coffee, like we do, chances are you already have some fancy syrups on hand. If not you can easily grab most of these from Torani, and Target. What do you need to make a butterbeer latte? Making a Butterbeer Latte is easy! And really only requires a few ingredients. Here is what you will need for a Butterbeer Latte. The syrups can usually be found at grocery stores, World Market, or on Amazon.  And everything else you can usually find at the grocery store.

Equipment needed to make a Butterbeer Latte

Luckily, you don’t need much to make this! You’ll need something to brew your espresso in, whether that’s an espresso machineNespresso machine, a Moka Pot, , or running to Starbucks and actually buying two shots of espresso. If you have no way of making espresso, you can always make very strong coffee. It won’t be exactly the same, but it works in a pinch. You’ll also want to make sure you have something to measure the syrups with. I use a jigger from a bar set because it’s the easiest. But if you don’t have one, just remember that a tablespoon is equal to half a liquid ounce. So, for one ounce, you’ll need 2 tablespoons. Easy!
