Add milk to a small saucepan and heat over medium. Do not bring the milk to a boil. We just want it to start steaming.
As the milk heats on the stove, we make some espresso (or double-strength coffee -- no need for an espresso machine if you don't have one).
In your serving mug, add the espresso and maple. Give it a stir to combine the two. Make sure you use real maple syrup here -- not pancake syrup!
When the milk begins to steam and small bubbles form on the surface, whisk vigorously until the milk turns frothy.
Now gently pour the foamed milk on top of the espresso and maple syrup. Gently stir to combine. The foam will layer itself on top like so.
