Raff is even easier to make than cappuccinos and lattes. Nothing needs to be thoroughly stirred and properly poured. Simply mix the cream, espresso, vanilla syrup/sugar in a pitcher and whisk until the contents of the pitcher reaches 65°C.
I keep getting bombarded by “coffee shop owners” who billed the vanilla raff as the author’s drink, so I’ll write again. Classic Raff. Vanilla.
The approximate consumption of raw materials depending on the volume is as follows:
250 ml drink. 160 ml cream, single espresso (30 ml).
Making Cappuccino/Latte/Flat White at Home (without an Espresso Machine)
350 ml drink. 250 ml cream, double espresso (45 ml).
450 ml drink. 330 ml cream, triple espresso/double lungo (60 ml).
The amount of syrup/vanilla sugar increases proportionally as well.
I have to point out right away that without using a coffee carob and espresso machine, which it makes, you can’t get a real cappuccino at all. But you can get a drink very much like it.
Why don’t I write about lattes?? These drinks are quite similar, and what you get can be considered both a cappuccino and a latte (and many more).
We take ground coffee (freshly ground is better, even better freshly ground) and make a strong black coffee any way we can. Filter coffee is better than coffee from a brew pot. If you don’t have any tools at all, you can simply pour 95 degrees of water over the coffee, let it brew, and then strain it. It is impossible to use instant coffee, because the coffee inquisition can burn you at the stake.
The smaller and stronger the coffee and the more milk it contains, the more cappuccino-like the drink will be. Ideally about 30% black coffee and 70% milk.
Now for the milk. You just pour it in, the milk has to be heated and whipped. If you don’t have a steamer, you can heat it in a microwave oven, up to about 65-70 degrees. Whisk with a whisk or a mixer.
Pour the resulting milk into the coffee, add sugar, cinnamon, syrups to taste and availability. Enjoy the result. It should look just like the picture.
Stirring the raff coffee
To make your coffee raff as puffy as possible, you use your coffee machine’s cappuccinator. In this case you mix the espresso with cold cream: the coffee will still get hot when you whip it with steam.
But there’s one thing: coffee with cream can only be whipped with a mechanical cappuccinator, as the automatic one gets clogged.
At home, milk can be whipped with a cappuccinator, a smoothie blender or a regular whisk. The beverage still tastes good, but it’s hard to get a froth that is as smooth and uniform as with the coffee machine’s cappuccinator.
At home, the cream must be preheated to a temperature of about 60°C, otherwise the raff will turn out cool.
Coffee raff is a Russian cappuccino or Russian latte?
The answer is no. It would be a mistake to equate coffee with lattes or cappuccinos.
Cappuccino and latte have milk, while raff has cream and vanilla sugar. Another product creates a completely different flavor.
In addition, the main difference is in the method used to brew it.
Latte is a “layered” drink. Layers are placed in the sequence: warmed milk. black coffee. whipped milk foam. The intention is not to mix the layers.
The technology of cappuccino preparation presupposes preliminary mixing of milk with a cappuccinator (or in some other way). And already after getting milk froth, the product is poured into prepared espresso coffee.
Unlike these drinks, which are actually a form of coffee with milk, raff is not just coffee with cream added. Unlike most coffee recipes, here the cream is whipped right along with the coffee. The result is a beverage with delicate vanilla and creamy foam.

Raff Coffee. It’s a coffee drink that, in the classic recipe, contains espresso, milk, cream and vanilla sugar. All the ingredients are placed in a pitcher, then the contents are whipped with a steamer and poured into a glass. But there are other recipes and today we are going to make raff coffee not with sugar, but with syrup.
A classic recipe in the coffee machine
In order to get the classic taste of the drink, first of all, you need to take care of a powerful and high-quality coffee machine. It should not only brew a strong and high-quality espresso, but also whip up all the ingredients.To create a good raff coffee you will need:
- 150 grams of ready espresso;
- 100 grams of cream (preferably low-fat up to 10%). If these are not available, then additionally dilute them with milk);
- One teaspoon of vanilla and regular sugar.
Add all the ingredients for the espresso in the coffee machine and prepare the base. While the machine is running, heat the container you are going to pour the espresso into (you can choose either a cup or a special glass). Pour sugar and cream into the pitcher. In some cases, experts suggest adding vanilla in its pure form, but it is better if it is very little, otherwise there will be too much bitterness in the coffee. When the espresso is ready, then add it to the pincher with the other ingredients. Next, whisk the whole pulp with a steamer. Here the main part of making coffee ends. Garnish your coffee with a topping or a picture, and you can serve it.
How to make coffee at home
In order to make coffee at home quickly and easily, it is necessary to use an expensive and high-quality coffee machine, as well as a cappuccinator. However, not everyone will have such equipment at home, in this case you can use a classic jezezer, which will give a similar taste and aroma. The ingredients used are as follows:
- 1 teaspoon ground coffee;
- 50 g water (preferably filtered or bottled);
- 100 g of cream with less than 10% fat;
- 1 teaspoon of regular and vanilla sugar.
If you want a richer coffee aroma and flavor, it is better to grind your own roasted beans before brewing. You will taste a difference in taste. A pinch of salt, added to the bottom of the jezza, will also help improve the quality of the coffee. Pour the coffee into the jug and add water to it The pot is placed over a low flame on the stove. In order for the beans to fully develop their flavor and aroma, the jesus is heated gradually. The coffee should not boil under any circumstances. When the froth begins to rise and reaches the edge of the jeze bowl, the coffee is removed from the fire and filtered. If you follow this procedure correctly the base will get quite strong, but if you just increase the quantity of coffee you will get only bitterness in the drink. The cream should be heated at this time in the microwave usually in standard microwaves you will need no more than 1.5-2 minutes. Next, mix all the ingredients: add the coffee, cream and sugar in a bowl and blend or whisk with a blender or whisk attachment. Preheat the serving dish, and then pour the resulting drink into it. Optionally, you can decorate it with a picture or topping.
