The easiest way to avoid the centrifuge is just to put the donut milk in a nice cold fridge to get all the fat to solidify and start to float to the surface. Then you can pour it through a rinsed filter paper to get rid of most of the solids.
As for coffees - pretty much anything works as the donut milk is not particularly subtle and will bulldoze over most nuances in the cup....

Being both playful with experimenting in the kitchen and far too much the romantic, I enjoyed the article very much! Thank you!
Though I have access to centrifuges fairly regularly (I am Comms volunteer with our EMS agency up here), no doubt Medical Direction would have angry little kittens if it was ever discovered I was using the equipment to play with hedonistic dimensions further involving me and my Elektra (yep, a bit of local notoriety already ) and - home roast! (Mark, I do glean the beans, but small-batch pan roasting will remain the limit here, apologies!)
I delight in the whimsy and dimensions enthusiastically explored by all levels of food scientists - to me, it shines as the very heart of why we love to make good coffee, and good food to the bounds of our individual abilities and means.
James, I'll probably never make your signature recipe - but I cross my heart and promise with my hand on a stack of Point cups that I will always be counted on being able to make (and on pretty short notice, too) very good cappuccino and fresh donuts.
It's as close as I'll get, but when I do, I'll smile at the thought of your signature coffee drink.
