Making the choice between Matcha and coffee can be an impossible feat sometimes- we simply want the best of both worlds.
Dirty Matcha (more widely known as Matcha Espresso Fusion) serves up the perfect solution for those of you treading caffeine middle ground. Virgin tries of this beverage were met with nods of approval from us, so we recreated this drink without the coffee machine.
Dirty Matcha flavour profile
There are three main components to a Dirty Matcha: Matcha, milk and coffee.
Lightly sweetened Matcha forms the base while milk allows a smooth transition in flavour between Matcha and roasted notes of coffee.
Here's how to make Dirty Matcha, along with some tips to achieve the best flavour.
Nailing the Matcha Coffee balance
The key to a good Dirty Matcha Latte lies in its ratio.
The bold coffee flavour could potentially overpower the Matcha while too much milk could leave you with an alkaline after taste.
If you lack the measuring tools for precision, eyeball a 1:2 ratio for your milk and Matcha and top it off with less coffee than milk.
