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.
