My morning Frothed Coffee

Oh, how I look forward to my coffee every morning.  Sometime I go to bed early because I can think of nothing more than my coffee.  I started drinking coffee my senior year in high school occasionally, with in a few months of college I was a full fledged coffee drinker.  At the time I enjoyed that taste but was drinking large quantities into the night to keep up with two jobs and college.  I didn’t like the taste of brewed coffee but drank espresso  from the beloved chain store.  Everyone needs one vice and this would be mine.

After college I was still drinking coffee but cut myself down to one latte a day, at $3.50 a pop.  Now its more like $4.50 a cup.  These trips to my local chain coffee house are now for special treats or really bad nights up with the kids.  When I gave up our extra income to stay home with the kids, it would have been selfish of me to continue drinking these delicious and expensive drinks.  I had tried brewing coffee and was getting better at drinking coffee at home, but it wasn’t the same.  I craved those vanilla lattes on a daily basis.  I drink my coffee with vanilla creamer, trying different brands to my liking.

About two years ago I was standing in a check out lane of a store and was these little electric whisks.  I joked to my husband, “who would by such a thing, they must be lazy” then I realized it said milk frother.  I worked in a coffee kiosk for a time, and knew that the richness I craved came from the foam or air in my milk.  The air in the milk or cream you use is like magic on your tongue.  The frother (like the one below) was only a few dollars, so I bought one.  It changed my life and anyone’s lives who have come over to my house for coffee.  I am pretty sure all my friends and family have bought one, once they tried it out.

I pour my allotted creamer (or milk) in my mug first.  Froth it for thirty seconds or less and fill my mug.  It gives you a whole new experience with home brewed coffee.  I no longer crave my vanilla latte, this is just as good.  My sister likes really hot coffee and heats her coffee creamer before frothing which works as well.
