When I was working for a major real estate developer in Atlanta, I was leading a very different life than I am now. I was wearing power suits, high heels, carried a briefcase and at sushi at my desk. We had a coffee shop in the lobby of our building, so I always grabbed an expensive coffee drink on my way up to my office. When I had kids, I traded all that in for the life of a stay at home mom. I traded those power suits for sweat pants, high heels for house shoes and my briefcase for a diaper bag. Oh, and those high priced coffees? They got traded for a nice hot mug of home brewed coffee! Do I miss those yummy coffee drinks? Darn skippy I do! Since we cannot afford for me to run to the Starbucks every morning, I learned to be a barista in my own kitchen! One of my latest obsessions is a White Chocolate Raspberry Latte.
This coffee is so dang good ya’ll! I make it with regular coffee and I froth the milk myself. I promise, it tastes just like the same White Chocolate Raspberry Latte you would get from a coffee shop. And the best part is I can make it for pennies on the dollar. I love to drink a latte, especially when the cool air of fall settles in. The problem was I couldn’t get it quite right by making it in a pan on the stove. My solution?
The froth PRO Automatic Milk Frother from Capresso, which sells for $59.99 on the Capresso website. I swear this little machine has totally changed how I drink y coffee in the morning! You can steam or froth your milk with the touch of a button. It has 3 temperature settings (hot, warm and cold) and I can even add the grated chocolate to the milk and froth them together!
For the best cup of coffee I can make, I use the The MG600 PLUS Coffee Maker from Capresso, which sells for $89.99 on the Capresso website. I am in love with this coffee maker! It quickly brews up to 10 cups of coffee in just 8 minutes and I can set it to brew later with the touch of a few buttons. The pot has an ergonomic handle, making pouring a breeze and the charcoal filter keeps up to 82% of impurities out of my coffee, tea or hot chocolate! For the freshest coffee on the planet, I prefer to grind my own beans.
With the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder, I can grind the widest range of precision grinding for whatever type of brewing method I choose. I can grind my beans to brew Turkish, espresso, drip coffee, French press, pour-over brewers and percolators. The Infinity Conical Burr Grinder sells for $99.99. Want to get your morning started off right? I am excited to offer one of my USA readers the chance to win a MG600 PLUS Coffee Maker from Capresso!
