So how do you take your latte?

Yes, another big topic here, this should get you all going and make the Takeover thread seem like a stroll in the park. ;-)

So latte people, and I’m talking about all the home baristas out there, which way do you go?

1. Milk in first
2. Coffee in first
3. Couldn’t give a fuck

Next -

1. Coffee bean
2. Pre ground from your supplier
3. Couldn’t give a fuck

Your chosen supplier?


Your choice of coffee machine is

2. kettle

Lastly -

1. I am not a robot
2. I am a robot
3. I am a killer robot and you’re next.

My answers are -
1. Milk in first
2. Pre ground
3. Rave coffee ( great coffee, good prices, if a little haphazard at times)
4. De Longhi
5. I am a robot. Like the one in the old Lost in Space.


  • Starbucks/ Nero ideally - Caramel Macchiato / Caramel Latte
    Mostly work machine kilx half a cup of vanilla latte lol
    If not Coffee first
    Whatever coffee mum has in the tin, normally a nice one
  • I'd take my latte to the sink and tip the revolting shit away.
    Put 2 teaspoons of Kenco Costa Rican in a mug, add water just off the boil and cold milk to taste. Sorted :wink:
  • strong tea, milk, 1 sugar.

    never in my life understood the coffee fascination and the prices people pay for one !
  • 1. If I asked for one (I think) the machine would put the milk in second.
    2. Beans The machine takes a kilo and grinds them as it goes.
    3. Gimoka.
    4. Siemens built-in.
    5. I am a Captcha.
  • I’ve never had a latte before . I hate coffee with milk.
  • Members only this now before anyone sees

    Can’t you make a poem about this mate?
  • 1. I'd put the milk in after - because it's less faff, but i only really drink americano/long blacks or espresso.
    2. Beans
    3. Pact
    4. Gaggia Classic (though it just died so am using a dolce gusto - full disclosure and minus geek points)
    5. Not allowed to say
  • Can we agree that it's also pronounced lat-tay and not larrrrtay
  • Orally

    Agreed, all I can add is FFS.
  • Who sticks their little finger out when holding their tea / coffee though?
  • I drink americano or filter coffee with cold milk.
    At home or out so I can't help you.
  • I dread ordering a coffee whilst out, especially when they ask what kind would you like, I always say just an ordinary cup please. Apparently this is called an Americano.
  • Strong black coffee with 1 sugar.
  • Don't drink coffee. Back to enamelling a bath thread for me.
  • Give a fuck first
    No need for milk
  • Chai latte with loads of cinnamon and a double helping of simpering outrage about the state of the planet ;)

    I would have expected Matcha to be honest
  • Matcha is nice but less reliably so
  • edited April 2018
    Black coffee, no fuss or froth.

    Though apparently that might make me a psychopath:
    2. Pre ground - I've not got a fucking living room, let alone space for a proper coffee machine mate
    4. Lavazza
    4. Bialetti Moka
    5. I wish I was a robot, they don't have to go to work with the flu
  • Who sticks their little finger out when holding their tea / coffee though?

    i'm more interested in who sticks their finger IN?
  • Double espresso's for me, if I want milk in a coffee I might stretch to a cortado.
  • Black with two sugars
  • Tea drinker myself, white no sugar.

    Latte's are grim, grown ups shouldn't drink glasses of warm milk.

    Keep your coffee short, Cortado all the way

    I'm sorry, did you really just refer to a cortado as 'short' ?

  • I prefer mine with a copy of the Guardian and some croissants.
