Maple Bacon Latte
Look what I got for my birthday!
First on the list: a maple bacon latte. It’s not the most original idea, but bacon has been a longtime frienemy of PWTIC, and whenever someone asks “what’s the best thing you’ve tried in coffee?” I usually say it’s the Smoked Paprika and Maple Latte. A maple bacon latte could combine all that goodness, if it works. And now I can make a real latte with espresso and steamed milk.
I also happened to have some of this in my fridge. It says “no artificial flavours,” but it’s worth noting that bacon is not in the list of ingredients. So I guess they consider fake bacon to be non-artificial. 100% genuine facon. Whatever; it’s the smokiness that matters here, and it has lots of that.
If I had bacon bits and whipped cream I’d put those on top to make this post more visually appealing, but, sorry, I didn’t. Please use your imagination.
I used about a tablespoon of the syrup, and it’s just sweet enough for me. The facon flavouring appears as a smokey aftertaste to the maple, providing a multi-level taste adventure. This is honestly one of the best weird coffees I’ve created here. I deem it a success!
Stay tuned for more espresso-based successes and horrible failures.
