Start by adding 20 grams of finely ground coffee to the AeroPress, followed by 10 grams of cocoa powder and 10 grams of sugar. Pour in 200 grams of hot water (around 200°F) and stir for 10 seconds. Then, press the coffee into a cup and add 50 grams of hot milk. If you're really feeling classy, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cocoa powder for a decadent treat. This recipe is perfect for those who love a sweet and chocolatey coffee flavour.
