Making a boba latte at home is simple and allows you to customize your drink to your liking.

Here’s a simple recipe for making a boba latte at home:

  1. Brew two shots of espresso or ½ cup of strong coffee and let it cool.
    • Optional: Add brown sugar or honey.
  2. Cook your boba/tapioca pearls according to the package instructions.
  3. Strain the boba, transfer it into a bowl, and set aside.
    • Optional: Add honey or syrup to the cooked boba and stir to combine.
  4. In a tall glass, pour the espresso shots or coffee and add milk.

Some tips and hints:

  • Boba pearls can be purchased at Asian grocery stores or online.
  • Use freshly brewed coffee for the best flavor.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar and milk/cream to your liking.
  • Use brown sugar if possible, it adds a caramel-like flavor.
  • Add ice to your drink if you prefer it cold.
