Give Christmas a proper coffee atmosphere!

Start by preparing a home espresso

Vienna Coffee Melange

Melange is likened to a café latte and a cappuccino, but for most, it's a blend of the two. This drink first appeared in the 18th century in Vienna. Outside of Vienna, the name " Wiener Melange " is often used for this drink .


The preparation of Melange is not at all difficult. First you need to froth 1 dcl of milk and brew a strong espresso. The best way is to make a doppio. Pour the whisked milk into a glass or cup. Now you can add the espresso. If you are making Melange in a glass, pour the espresso slowly over a spoon. This will give you 3 layers. Finally, top up the glass or cup with thick milk foam.
