  • 2 tablespoons (30g) of Afripresso coffee, finely ground
  • 6 ounces (175ml) of filtered water, just off the boil (about 205°F or 96°C)
  • 2 ounces (60ml) of frothed milk or milk alternative (optional)
  • Cocoa powder or cinnamon (for garnish, optional)
  • Sweetener of choice (optional, to taste)


  • Espresso machine or Moka pot
  • Milk frother (if adding frothed milk)
  • Coffee grinder (if using whole beans)
  • Espresso cup


  1. Grind the Beans: Grind your Afripresso beans to a fine consistency similar to table salt.
  2. Heat the Water: If using a Moka pot, fill the bottom chamber with water that’s just off the boil.
  3. Brew the Espresso:
    • For Espresso Machine: Pack the ground coffee into the portafilter and tamp it down firmly. Lock the portafilter in place and start the machine. Aim for a brew time of 20-30 seconds until you have about 2 ounces (60ml) of espresso.
    • For Moka Pot: Fill the filter basket with the ground coffee, place it into the bottom chamber, and screw the top on tightly. Place the pot on medium heat and wait for the coffee to brew.
  4. Froth the Milk: While the espresso is brewing, froth your milk using a milk frother or by heating the milk gently on the stove and whisking until frothy.
  5. Assemble Your Drink: Pour the freshly brewed espresso into an espresso cup. Gently pour the frothed milk on top if desired.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle a dash of cocoa powder or cinnamon on top for a decorative touch and added flavor. Sweeten to taste.
  7. Enjoy: Sip and savor the rich, intense flavors of the Afripresso, a perfect start to your day or a delightful afternoon pick-me-up.

Feel free to tailor the recipe to your taste, such as adjusting the amount of milk or sweetener, or even adding a flavored syrup for a personalized twist. Enjoy your crafting with Afripresso!
