I've found it. Hands down, the best Honey Latte on earth.
Since I only find myself in Columbus, on average, once a week- I needed to try my best to replicate this honey latte at home. I searched online for several recipes. They all seemed pretty lame. Make coffee, add honey- something to that effect. The owner at One Line actually gave me a run down of the ingredients in their honey latte, and it was a complex mixture of herbs and spices that accompany the honey. He did it so quickly I couldn't even begin to remember half of it.
Today I am going to share my recipe for an iced honey latte that keeps the honey RAW by adding it to water that is not heated over 100 degrees F.
I use beans from One Line Coffee, and grind them myself. I used to use the Krups grinder pictured here, but have since upgraded to a burr grinder (also purchased at One Line). I love love love the burr grinder! It was a Christmas gift from Isaac and I think the burr grinder produces a better cup of coffee. But the Krups one worked fine for several years.
I add the ground coffee to a class jar and fill it with filtered water.
This is what it looks like all mixed together. Into the refrigerator it goes, for 24 hours.
After 24 hours (minimum) I use my AeroPress to filter out the grounds from the water. You could also use a simply coffee filter and allow it to drip out. But I use my AeroPress daily, whether making hot or cold coffee and it works really well.
After the grounds have been filtered out, you can add milk to your liking, and I add my honey at this time. To do this, I gently warm a little water in a pan (under 100 degrees) and add the honey to dissolve. This goes into my coffee/milk mixture. And there you have it. A pretty awesome honey latte.
