There is nothing difficult about making this rose latte coffee. As long as you understand the basics of making a typical espresso, you should have nothing to worry about – except rose latte art. It might be difficult to make at home.

What You'll Need for a Rose Latte

We will list all ingredients you need for making a Rose Latte at home. Ready? Here we go!

To Make the Rose Syrup

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup dried rose buds or petals

For the Latte

  • 2 shots of espresso
  • 270 ml milk (Oat milk is an excellent option)
  • Rose simple syrup to taste


Making The Syrup

  • Dissolve the sugar completely in the water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • As the simple syrup warms up, add the rose petals and bring it to a boil. This is normal. Your syrup will likely turn crimson or red.
  • Remove the syrup from the flame after it has reduced and boiled for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Allow the syrup to infuse for approximately ten minutes.
  • You can keep the syrup in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks after the rose petals have been strained out.

To Brew The Coffee

  • Get your espresso ready. We have talked about how to make espresso before; you can read our brew guides.
  • Boil your milk. Either a steam wand or a cooktop with gentle whisking can be used to reach 150 degrees.
  • To flavor, add a few tablespoons of your homemade rose syrup to the bottom of your teacup or glass.
  • Add the milk and froth it with the syrup to create a pink and creamy foam.
  • Add espresso, stir gently, and decorate with additional rose petals. Don’t forget to take a picture. Enjoy!

Isn't it easy? Okay, let's get started on making your Rose Latte so you can start drinking it.
