    coffee syrup for etching

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    so ive been thinking of giving a go at etching just out of curiosity

    but i dont really want to just pour chocolate syrup into my coffee if possible so i was wondering if anyone has had any experience with making their own coffee syrup?

    my thoughts and experiments so far have led to pulling 2 double shots and adding some chocolate powder to try and thicken it?

    would love to hear any recipes or even any other general thoughts

    :D

    Gday lemoo,

    We used that exact recipe at the Coffee Academy in the old days when latte art was just beginning in Australia. Although etching is a touch passe now, its still fun to play with.

    Give the mix some time in the fridge after you make it to let it thicken and then etch away ;)

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi lemoo,
    Try Andys Pure Cocoa powder from Bean Bay. :)
    It is fabulous.
    Mix with water to your requirements.
    This powder makes a great chocolate sauce over ice cream etc.
