Amen. As a Seattle native, coffee is our culture. Starbucks and Coffee Stands are everywhere…I mean everywhere. It’s amazing the level of excitement one gets from getting that perfectly steamed Latte or exquisitely styled Frappuccino. I admit, coffee just makes me happy. Plain and simple. What I struggle with, however, is the price tag. Of course it’s more of the experience you are paying for, but sometimes we need to be realistic and just cut back a bit.
To save a few dollars every day, I have opted to brew my own coffee. I still want some experience, however, so I have been playing around with different ways to make it fun (or pretty!). I have an obsession with froth…I LOVE that thick, foamy goodness. My go-to ‘creamer’ is almond milk which can be tricky. I have been researching various methods to ‘froth’ and came upon My Coffee Mood (it’s like the name read my mind). One of their articles from December 2014 listed the ‘Best Milk Frothers.’ My fave was the Bodum Latte Milk Frother – it’s battery operated and only 6oz which is a PERFECT size for my morning routine, plus it’s easily portable so I can take along camping – convenience is key!
Are you a coffee fanatic? My Coffee Mood has you covered with product reviews and tips to keep your caffeine cravings satisfied. Check them out here!
I would like to note: Even though I have mastered the art of home brewing (and saved a few $$), I will still support my beloved coffee crafters periodically – it’s all in moderation, my friends. :)
