    I do it my way … and save money at the same time I have been using the for quite some time, but have always wished that I could have something warm for winter. I did purchase a hot chocolate maker, but wasn’t really happy with it. it is very nice for a crowd, but not so great for one person.So this particular item has made a big hit in my kitchen. It is easy to use, easy to set up, and I can use my own ingredients and have as many lattes as I want. The only problem I have had so far is that I have had to buy more milk … I was making too many lattes.As you will see in the video, the pot contains its own heating element. There are several things to consider. First, it automatically shuts off and never burns the milk. At the same time, it can’t be cleaned in the dishwasher (although I never clean my coffee pots that way), and second, if the pot is broken, it cannot be cheaply replaced. So there are both good points and bad points.In the video, I use the which I actually purchased from Amazon in a Gold Box deal last year. I put in one tablespoon, but if you prefer a sweeter latte, you can use a package of equal or two tablespoons. You can also use “real” chocolate, but as a diabetic, one of the key reasons I enjoy my own makers, besides saving money, is being able to make my own choices.Besides the chocolate latte I made in the video, I have also made a number of recipes that were included. The pumpkin spice one was awesome. I had purchased one at a local shop the morning my machine arrived, and I found this one to be much better. I used the pumpkin pie spice and a tablespoon of pumpkin, plus a package of Equal, along with the milk.When the snowstorm hit, I made hot chocolate, using the heat and froth setting, and made an awesome hot chocolate. I made a double, and after I finished my first cup, I hit froth and heat again, and had another perfect cup!In fact, I have learned that I might as well make two cups when I start, since I always go back for more. Since the pot does not remain heating, the milk doesn’t burn, and a quick “heat and froth” warms it quickly. Because of the milk, I wouldn’t leave it sit for long, but I tend to drink my first cup pretty quickly.Now that it is cold, I am grateful for the ability to make my own WARM drinks. While I’ve only had this one a short time, my Frappe maker has lasted through nearly two years of usage, so I anticipate this one will last a long time as well.The video will show you exactly what this machine does, so if you are a coffee gourmet, you can decide if this is the kind of machine you want in your kitchen.For those who are concerned about cleaning, I normally wipe it out with a soapy sponge right after I use it. If I want a deeper cleaning, I put a dab of dish soap in it and put it on heat and froth … it cleans up beautifully.EDITED …While unpacking, I ran across something I used to use for a similar effect, but had long ago forgotten. If you aren’t quite ready to splurge on the price of an entire machine, you might want to consider the . This little gadget will froth your milk, or combination of coffee and milk, or any other combination, and runs about 1/5 of the price of the latte maker. Plus it fits in your drawer.While I enjoy the convenience of having the machine (turn it on, come back), some of you might want to consider the frother itself. It is identical to the one in the machine.

    Not exactly what I expected, but works good. Overall, I am satisfied. Pros: There are many different variations/recipes you can make which is useful, and it also makes good hot chocolate/chai lattes. The drinks come out extra hot (a plus for me since I take my drinks on the go) and they are easy to make. It makes the equivalent of two 16 oz lattes. Machine is comparatively affordable to others like it. Cons: I was disappointed to find out that it does not make a true latte. What this machine makes is properly called a cafe au lait. The difference is that a latte uses steam-driven espresso, while a cafe au lait uses drip coffee (which this does). Although some people may argue the difference, if your a hardcore espresso fan you know, as an au lait lacks the intensity of espresso. Also, the frother is not steam-driven – it basically whisks the milk to foam. This is not suitable for creating the silky coffeehouse- style foam that many are used to. The only other way I can think to make it better is to make it programmable. As an espresso lover, I have a full-fledged espresso maker at home (which takes time to make drinks) and I bought this to save time and money on my daily drinks. It does do that. It works like it says it does and although it’s not the best latte i’ve had, i’ve certainly had worse.

    Creates delicious coffee lattes; can be used to create tea lattes and hot chocolate also As soon as I received this, I put it into service and made a double serving of the basic cafe latte. It came out delicious with lots of foam. My boyfriend raved about the cafe latte; which is unusual for him. In fact, he raved about it even more than I did and I thought it was very good. We did not lack for froth–perhaps because I used skim milk which froths well. When the brewing cycle was complete, I just poured our drinks and used a spoon to scoop out copious amounts of froth on top of the drink.What I love about this machine:- This sleek black appliance is absolutely gorgeous and looks great on the counter.- It froths very well if you use SKIM MILK.- Operating the machine is easy. The unit also includes lines on the carafe and in the water reservoir for a single or double serving size. Just follow the recipe(s) and instructions that came with the book.- The coffee basket is easily removable for washing.- I can also make hot chocolate and tea lattes with this Mr. Coffee.- It comes with a recipe pamphlet for 14 coffee lattes, 3 tea lattes, and 3 hot chocolates.What I don’t like:- You can’t submerge the carafe or carafe lid in water. This means you must be careful when washing this by hand. I don’t use a dishwasher, but I can see where some might not like that the carafe and lid cannot be washed in a dishwasher.- There are no instructions in the manual on how to use the heat/froth only button. I discovered that once the brew cycle was complete, if I wanted more heat and froth I had to turn the unit off after it finished brewing, put the button into the heat/froth only mode, and then turn it on again to get this part to operate. I didn’t need to use this cycle at all but I wanted to see what would happen and how this cycle operated. I could see where this would come in handy if the latte had cooled for a while before pouring.- I wish this Cafe Latte maker came with a reusable mesh basket instead of having to purchase a size 4 (Mr. Coffee brand recommended) basket-type coffee filter for this unit. I already own which comes with a reusable mesh basket. I wish the manufacturer had decided to supply a mesh insert for this unit instead of requiring paper filters. This is my biggest negative.- Even if the brew basket is seated correctly inside the unit, once the latte cycle is complete and the carafe is removed, there was always a small amount of water that trickled down the base of the unit. I experienced this during all my brew cycles (3 in total) and the reservoir was not overfilled and the basket was seated as it should be.Overall, I think this is a good machine for latte lovers. It’s not as great as their frappe machine (which is a 5-start product), but it is still a quality product.
