Step 1: Prepare the Spiced Pear Base

Begin by peeling and cubing the pears. If you're using whole pears, place them in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes until they become fork-tender. If you're using puréed pears, simply warm them in the saucepan and skip Step 2.

Step 2: Purée the Pears

For whole pears, transfer them to a food processor or blender and purée them until smooth.

Step 3: Spice it Up

In a mixing bowl, combine the pear purée with brown sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and ground ginger. This mixture forms the flavorful spiced pear base that gives the latte its unique taste.

Step 4: Prepare your Ember Mug

Before brewing your espresso and steaming the milk, scoop 1/4 cup of the spiced pear base into your  Ember Mug 2

Step 5: Sweeten the Deal

Drizzle honey around the sides of your Ember Mug 2, adding a delightful sweetness to the drink. 

Step 6: Combine the Flavors

Brew 1-2 shots of Owl's Howl espresso (or espresso of your choice) and pour your freshly brewed espresso into your Mug. Gently stir until the spiced pear base blends seamlessly with your coffee

Step 7: The Latte Pour

Steam your milk and execute your latte pour. 

Pro Tip: Creating the spiced pear base is the most time-consuming step, but don't fret! You can make multiple servings of the base at once and store the remaining portions in the fridge. When you're ready for another delicious latte, simply scoop a single serving of the base into your Ember Mug 2 and enjoy.

This aromatic and sweet latte combines the warmth of spiced pears with the rich flavors of coffee, creating a beverage that's perfect for any occasion this season. With the convenience of preparing multiple servings of the spiced pear base in advance, you can enjoy this treat whenever the craving strikes. So, why not brew a steaming cup of this delectable latte in your Ember Mug.
