There’s nothing quite like making the perfect cup of coffee at home. Nothing beats the convenience of brewing your own cup, and nothing beats the satisfaction of preparing it just the way you want it.
But if you think that making your own coffee is a notable achievement, you should try making your own cappuccinos and lattes. Anybody can buy a coffee pot and grind some beans, but getting the perfect foam for handcrafted espresso beverages is just a little bit harder.
5 Reasons You Need the Breville Milk Café Milk Frother in Your Life
Or at least it used to be until Breville came out with their milk café frother. It makes warming and frothing milk easy, and it gives you spectacular results every time. Of course, there are lots of milk frothers on the market, so the competition is pretty stiff. What is it that makes the Breville Milk Café worth the price tag?
A lot actually. This compact little machine is the perfect companion to turn your kitchen into a café and to help make any coffee or espresso based beverage feel indulgent and fancy. Only movie stars have milk frothers this fancy at home, right?
The Breville milk café has lots of great attributes, and here are 5 reasons why it’s the extravagant kitchen gadgets you just have to have.
1. It’s Easy to Use
You want to be an at-home barista, but you don’t want to have to go through a training program to do it. Making your own lattes should be easy, and this electric milk frother makes that possible.
The dial is easy to read, and all you have to do is set it for the desired temperature and the desired foam quality. It holds 4 cups of milk so you can make plenty of milk to supply the coffee beverages of everyone in your household.
2. It Works Quickly
Time is always of the essence. You never seem to have enough of it, and that’s especially true in the morning. To get everyone up and out the door on time, you need kitchen equipment that can work as fast as you do. The Breville’s induction heating system heats milk through quickly, and the automatic hands-free frothing means that you can set the dial and continue on with all your other morning tasks.
But it can even come in handy when you have more free time. On those rare afternoons where you’re the only one in the house and you can finally indulge in a good cappuccino and a good book, you don’t have to spend all your precious time prepping your drink.
3. You Can Add in Ingredients
As your milk froths and warms, you can actually add other ingredients to your beverage through the opening in the lid. Whether its coffee, espresso, or shaved chocolate, adding them in as the milk froths helps to create full-bodied beverage that is packed with flavor, warmed consistently throughout, and mixed well.
This feature is ideal for making and indulgent cup of hot chocolate, and it’s sure to help you win big at any holiday party you throw.
4. It Has Hot and Cold Settings
The problem with an electric milk frother is that they often only work with milk at one temperature. They either start with cold milk and heat it and froth it at the same time without making froth from cold milk, or they make unheated froth that needs to be warmed independently before adding it into drinks.
The Breville milk café has two settings that allow you to have hot or cold frothed milk depending on the beverage of your choice. You can enjoy an iced cappuccino with light airy foam on a hot and humid day, or you can sip on a hot latte on chilly fall day. You get to pick, and you get great results from one compact little carafe.
5. It’s Easy to Clean
Most kitchen gadgets are notoriously hard to clean, but with two dishwasher safe attachments easy cleaning is the name of the game here. You just pop the attachments into the dishwasher for a thorough cleaning, and the carafe and lid can be hand washed in hot soapy water.
The stainless steel exterior wipes clean easily, and it will always look fancy and fashionable on your kitchen counter. Guests will wonder what this shiny little carafe does, and before you know it you’ll be whipping up a few lattes and having a nice long chat.
A Kitchen Gadget to Change the Tides
Kitchen gadgets can get a bad wrap all thanks to things like the mini doughnut hole maker, but Breville’s milk café is the gadget that makes sense. Sure, you can live without it. Sure, you can survive on froth-less, foam-less coffee, but is that really anyway to live? Instead, indulge, relax, and make anytime café time.
