Homemade Irish coffee

Irish coffee is the drink for coffee lovers who like to take it to the edge... a combination of coffee and Irish whiskey with a delicate layer of thick whipped cream, perfect for celebrating the everyday.






1 tsp

light brown sugar (demerara)

1 tsp

dark brown sugar (muscovado)

25 ml (1 shot)


35 ml

Irish whiskey

35 ml

whipping cream

to taste

fresh grated nutmeg

Step by step

  1. Fill a heatproof glass with hot water to preheat it, using the steam wand.

  2. Pour out water and add 1 tsp. light brown sugar (Demerara) and 1 tsp. dark brown sugar (Muscovado).

  3. Pull the shot of Espresso into the glass.

  4. Pour the hot espresso over to the dissolve sugar, then pour in whiskey.

  5. In a separate bowl with a mixer or by hand, whisk the cream until soft peaks form. The cream should be thick but still pourable. Pour it slowly over a warm spoon onto the coffee, being careful not to break the coffee's surface.

  6. Garnish with some grated nutmeg!
