In this step by step tutorial, I will show you how you can make the perfect vanilla French press cappuccino in no time. You just need a few ingredients and your French press. So, if you had bought a French press but never got the chance to use it, this is the time to remove it from your kitchen cabinet and put it to good use.

On the other hand, even if you use your French press regularly to make coffee then this vanilla French press cappuccino will give a unique touch to your ordinary coffee. It is a great way to enjoy some flavor along with your favorite coffee.  


Things You Will Need

The recipe involves only a few ingredients that you can easily find in your cabinet. These ingredients include milk, coffee beans, water, and vanilla extract. I used coarsely ground coffee beans but you can use any type of beans you want. As far as milk is concerned, it also depends on your choice. If you prefer non-dairy milk, go for it.

The recipe involves only a few steps. You start by boiling water. However, do not use this boiling hot water for your cappuccino. Instead, let it sit for one minute and then use it. Add coffee beans, vanilla extract, and this hot water to your French press and leave it again for 2 minutes. This timing is very important so be careful during this step. After 2 minutes, lower the plunger and that’s it! Your delicious, rich and ah-so-amazing vanilla French press cappuccino is ready!
