Step 2 In a mixing bowl, combine heavy cream and sea salt, then whisk on high until it reaches a thick and frothy consistency with soft peaks, typically taking about 2-3 minutes with a hand mixer.
Step 3 Once ready, top your coffee with the sea salt cream, and enjoy it directly with the foam on top.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use any type of coffee for this recipe, or is there a specific recommendation?
For the best flavor experience, we recommend using bold dark roasts like French or Italian coffee. These roasts complement the creamy foam perfectly.
How do I achieve the perfect consistency for the sea salt foam?
To achieve the perfect consistency for the sea salt foam, simply hand mix until soft peaks are formed. This means whisking the foam until it reaches a fluffy texture that holds its shape but is still soft and airy.
Is it necessary to chill the coffee before adding the sea salt foam?
While it's not necessary to chill the coffee beforehand, chilling the coffee helps maintain its bold flavor without the ice diluting the flavors.
Leftovers of this drink are best enjoyed promptly. However, if you have leftover foam, it can be stored in a separate container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
