Yes I like to froth my milk up a bit and try and make the best coffee to rival Costa especially this time of year. It's funny, as soon as there is a chill in the air I seem to go latte or milk coffee crazy. It was never a latte when we were kids, we made a milky coffee, first by boiling the milk in a pan on the stove and then when microwave ovens came along well that just made it so much easier.
I find as we approach a certain time of year things start to happen with coffee's, we start to put gingerbread syrup in and try to drown mini gingerbread men in a big pool of cream. Cinnamon gets included in drinks and we go boozy with a bit of Bailey's Irish Cream. All blooming lovely but sometimes I just want to save my pennies and have these delights in the comfort of my own home.
I do have one of those electric milk frother's but it doesn't seem to hold a lot of milk, I tend to fill it to the max line and it ends up overflowing, greedy me eh? I know they are designed more to pop a layer of froth on your drink but I like a bit more milk. So I thought I would go for the battery hand held type and I can say this one (pictured) is really good.
It has two frothy wands, one with a standard ring and then another with two super rings for producing double froth. I can put a load of milk in a jug now and get it properly professionally frothy. I haven't tried doing fancy pictures in my brew yet but hey I may try now.
I do have a Tassimo machine and yes I could just buy the lattes for it but where's the fun in that? Sometimes I like fresh milk instead of the ones that come in the Tassimo pods. I can also froth up my favourite coconut milk too, in fact I could just mix anything with this baby, cream, eggs.....if it needs a bit of air in I'm whizzing it.
I purchased this from Amazon and yes I will pop a link (affiliated) up at the end of this post. If you fancy yourself as a Barista or want to impress the family with posh coffee after THAT meal in December, oh ok Christmas dinner, there I said it! Just get one of these, really simple to use, easy to clean and makes your milk taste great in your brew, go on give it a go.
Thank you for reading today, join me tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday but for now take care and here's your link.......get frothing.
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
