Prep Time:

2 minutes

Cooking Time:

5 minutes

What you'll need:

  • 1 tsp cocoa powder 
  • 1 tsp caster sugar 
  • 50g of Cinnamon  
  • 4 tbsp very strong hot black instant or filter coffee 
  • 150ml pint full-fat milk 


  1. Mix the cocoa powder, cinnamon and sugar in a cup that holds around 250ml. Pour the coffee into the cocoa mixture and stir until the cocoa and sugar dissolve. 
  2. Pour the milk into an electric milk frother, if you have one, and begin frothing. Alternatively, pour the milk into a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring regularly – do not allow to simmer or boil. Use a hand-held milk frother or a silicone whisk to whisk until frothy. 
  3. Slowly pour the milk onto the coffee, starting by holding the cup at a slight angle, towards the milk. Finish by topping with the foam. Serve immediately, stirring well before drinking.
