I have a variety of single serve coffee makers that attempt to make coffee house beverages. Don’t get me wrong, for putting a plastic cup in a machine and pressing a button they do a decent job, but no one that’s a coffee connoisseur would confuse one of those with one made in a café. Lattés, mochas, cappuccinos those take a bit more finesse than the average home machine can produce. Really it makes sense as the whole reason those drinks stand out from just plain coffee is that the milk has to be frothed.
The main task of this little machine is to heat or froth your milk up for premium beverages. Don’t just think coffee, you can do hot cocoas, cold drinks, tea lassis, all sorts of beverages with it.
I added 1/2 ounce of raspberry syrup to the mug, while I was brewing the strong coffee I poured 4 oz of milk into the Mr. Coffee Automatic Milk Frother, and just pressed the button until it indicated Latte, hit the power button and away it went spinning and heating that milk up for me.
And because I just couldn’t not show you the nice cappuccino foam it makes, I used the frother again to make some of that so you could see the nice foam it makes on that setting.. and this is with 1% milk, it will be much foamier and creamier with a higher fat content.
Now you will be able to make lattes and cappuccinos that ARE comparable to a café and it is the milk froth that makes all the difference. For a countertop machine that has a small footprint, it has some serious frothing power, if you’re only familiar with those frothing wands this is so much better. As for the flavor, it steams the milk well. I think that when you heat on the stovetop you can get a bit of a burnt or curdled taste to your milk if you’re not careful. The Mr. Coffee Automatic Milk Frother heats the milk to just the right temperature for all your drinks.
