    Weird but delicious coffee beverage!!!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just thought I would like to here about weird but delicious coffee drink recipes here is mine.

    Almond late

    Ingredients / equipment (other than espresso gear)

    Raw almonds soaked in water overnight.
    Sugar if desired
    A slow juicer capable of making nut milk
    Nut milk bag or cheese cloth

    Method

    Feed 1/2 almonds and 1/2 fresh filtered water through your juicer according to your juicer instructions.
    Filter your almond milk through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth.
    Steam the almond milk as you would normal cows milk.
    Make a late with the almond milk adding sugar if desired

    Do not expect this to taste like a milky coffee it has a taste and texture all of its own. ENJOY

    Seems overly complicated.
    Why not just buy some almond milk?

    I should have added that

    Its because store brought almond milk has been ultra heat treated and has no where near as good a taste or texture and for me it dose not steam as well.

    Making your own nut and soy milks for some reason just tastes better.

    hope this helps

    Shure Yelta I would not recommend consuming hundreds of almonds a day either but a Glass of fresh almond milk has less almonds than the recommended daily intake So I wouldn't wary about almond milk to much.

    I had a laugh. We have a soy almond mix that is delicious. That almond milk site is actually quite positive. If you want to explore extreme websites, try notmilk.com and see how it compares. I think I'll stick with plant milk, cows milk is for calves.

    Evening JKB, guess if we follow your logic then plant milk is for ----- baby plants!

    Yes, if you suppose plants are mammals... anyhow, we make almond milk (stealing it from the baby almonds) and add to our favourite soy 50/50 as it reduces the sweetness of the milk on a par with the moo stuff

    Or, you could milk a cow...
    Last plant milk I used was from milkweed and it worked very well at killing my warts....

    If cows' milk is only for calves then we shouldn't be using coffee beans for an unintended purpose.

    I made almond milk with my slow juicer once. It tasted good. But I put it in the fridge and it split into the meal and the water and wasn't very nice after that.

    Yes, almond milk will separate into water and cream. If you didn't filter it through a nut bag, or nut sack as I like to call it, you'll have a fair amount of pulp. Making it in a show juicer is a good way.

    I won't rise to the unintended use comment, but your previous question is a good one. Store bought almond milk is very thin, based on the cost of almonds alone it will never be as good as home made. Plus nut milk is one of the easiest plant milk to make. Soy milk is a pita to make.

    My slow juicer manual includes a recipie for making it, but I never tried it. Yes, the Almond milk was "gritty" but I would have thought even if you sieved it, the finer solids (ie. the white part) would still separate. I kind of liked the grittyiness, that's where the flavour was.
