Ingredients you need

Coffee, milk, and a delicious homemade cinnamon dolce syrup are required for making a delicious cinnamon latte.

Whole Milk: This ingredient is the first choice for hot lattes because it has the right composition for steaming and frothing. However, if you need a little less dairy in your life, feel free to trade this ingredient for barista-quality non-dairy milk or lactose-free milk.

Cinnamon Dolce Syrup: I love home-making this simple ingredient; then, I can control the flavor! Try my easy recipe!

Espresso Shots: Freshly brewed espresso packs an energizing and flavorful punch! Use your favorite method for making espresso at home, like a Moka pot or Aeropress.

Cinnamon: This sizzling spice is the tastiest way to decorate your finished drink!

Barista Tips

  • To make a stronger infusion of cinnamon flavor, try mixing the milk and cinnamon dolce before adding them to the coffee.
  • Remember always to choose ‘barista-quality’ non-dairy milk because its enriched composition makes it easier to froth.
  • When brewing coffee, always use filtered water. Filtered water does not calcify the coffee equipment, which makes for a better taste.
  • Never drink too hot coffee; always give it a moment to chill out. This is important to save yourself from painful burns and to bring out the best flavor. Believe it or not, the flavor of coffee is better after cooling a bit because your tongue is not overwhelmed by heat.
  • Great coffee starts with great equipment. That does not mean you need expensive things to make good coffee, but with proper maintenance, everyone’s homebrew can taste barista-made.


This hot latte is already low in fat. It doesn’t even use whipped cream! Yet, if you’re craving something even lighter, trade the whole milk for skim or low-fat plant-based milk.

  • Saucepan: This recipe makes a hot cinnamon dolce latte like no other, but to get the milk hot enough you will need a saucepan. A small saucepan is the perfect tool for this latte.
  • Milk Frother: A handheld milk frother is a great tool for home baristas to have on hand. Another great option for home coffee enthusiasts is to use a French press. The plunger can be used like a milk frother to whip some air into your warm milk.
