A reader bought this through the Amazon portal (which is the link to my book) and I was so intrigued that I asked for it, for Christmas.
What intrigued me? Two things — cost and froth.
A) COST: I’m way too middle class to spend a lot on a coffee maker; it wouldn’t make me feel good about myself. Spending a lot for a latte would, in fact, make me feel bad about myself. While this unit sells at higher prices in stores, it goes for under $55 at Amazon, which is really my limit for a latte maker. Free shipping from Amazon prime is a nice bonus, too.
B) FROTH: I have to admit, with this unit, I doubted the froth. My hubby and I were given an espresso/cappuccino maker many years ago as a gift and the thing had issues, particular as regards froth. The hot steam was not a good thing for a clumsy girl like me; I never did figure out how to get a really good froth going, and then the cleanup…I couldn’t enjoy the latte for thinking of the cleanup.
And clean up is a snap.
And now I don’t have to go out to find a good chai tea latte. This thing does the trick, perfectly. I’m really happy with it. In these cold days of winter, I feel like Cameron pulled out of the deep end, and given a kiss of life: Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte, you’re my hero…
As is whoever purchased this for someone else at Christmas and exposed me to the thing!
