We've been using the Keurig Milk Frother over the past two weeks, and have to say it's easy to use, clean up, and makes great frothed milk. You'll need only one essential ingredient - great skim milk for frothing. If you want to use other milk fat levels - you won't get great froth, but you will get whipped hot milk. There are two levels as well 150 ml for froth using skim milk, and 250 ml for hot milk. Both of these measure levels are marked inside the frother.
Looking for a great way to showcase all of those K-Cup flavors you have for your Keurig singles serve coffee maker? We have been using the Keurig Tower K-Cup Holder for over a month, and we love it. Instead of reaching into the cupboard for a K-Cup we can load up the tower with as many varieties of K-Cup coffees, teas, and even white or hot chocolate. We've found this to be a much better design than the earlier K-Cup Carousel because the footprint of the tower is much less. The lazy susan design is also really fluid, and the tower can hold up to 30 K-Cups.
At first glance this quirky vessel looks like a regular glass jug, but take a closer look and you’ll notice it features an internal chamber shaped like a cow’s udder. Hand-crafted from double-walled glass, the Calf and Half jug holds up to 150ml of milk/cream making it ideal to use when having your cup of single serve coffee or tea. The Calf and Half Jug can be yours for £14.95.
How does it work? Just pour in milk, turn it on and the Keurig Milk Frother heats and stirs the milk in under 90 seconds. The addition of the Keurig Milk Frother to your single serve coffee arsenal will give you the ability to take the darker K-Cup roasts, and make some home brewed lattes and cappuccinos. Also you can now buy it online for just $69.95 making it a great gift this holiday season. We'll have a full review of the Keurig Milk Frother soon.
Meant to remind you to recycle, this trash bin is perfect for a countertop waste bin to catch those coffee pods and spent K-Cups. You can then take the spent coffee pods and K Cups and dump the coffee out into your garden, house plants, or compost pile. The coffee cup trash bin is 30cm tall and will cost you $20.
The Aeroccino Plus is a larger version of the Aeroccino that also allows you to override the heating function if you wish to froth milk without heating. The cost for the Aeroccino Plus is $129 versus $99 on the smaller Aeroccino (read our review of the earlier Aeroccino here). The reason any single serve coffee drinker would want to get an Aeroccino is the need for frothed milk for those latte and capuccino drinks you might want to make at home to save a few dollars. We used the Aeroccino Plus in this review with the new Essenza Touch and our Nespresso Essenza C100T.
The Aeroccino won't make the same frothed milk as a high end espresso machine, but it will make a very thick-rich frothed cup of hot or cold milk. The Aeroccino Plus is also larger than the earlier version, and this allows you to make enough milk for 2+ drinks depending on what your making.
How does it work? To produce warm frothed milk, heating the milk to temperatures between 140-149°F/60-65°C, quickly press the button once. To override the heating function, press the button for two full seconds.
The EZ Fill Liquid Indicator is a small bright red device that buzzes to indicate a liquid has reached about 1 inch from the top of a your single serve coffee cup, or whatever container your choose to use it on. Meant to help the visually impaired, we think it would also work perfectly for non-automatic shut off Nespresso, and espresso systems. It uses three 1.5 volt LR44 batteries (included).
You can create a coaster in any shape you want with these pixels made of paper. Each coaster is also completely different, and the perforations allow you to tear off at the individual pixel level, making for a fun cup of coffee that is unique every time.
We know we've had the i-Roast 2 for the entire summer, and yes we've been using it. We've made quite a few batches of our own coffee, and we've really enjoyed the smell of fresh brewed beans. Our favorite method is to make a small micro batch, and then brew it up that day or early the next morning using our Breville Keurig single serve coffee maker, and the My K Cup Resuseable filter. Here's a video of a recent batch of columbian coffee baking in the iRoast 2. We'll have a full review soon.
