During winter, there's nothing better than a steaming hot cup of coffee, cafe latte or hot chocolate. The creamy goodness of these beverages definitely soothes the soul as well as any frazzled holiday nerves.
Unfortunately, most coffee makers are designed to make just that...coffee. And if you'd like anything else, such as a cafe latte, you're going to pay through the nose at a neighborhood coffee shop.

Since cafe lattes are my absolute favorite hot beverage, I couldn't wait to give the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte machine a try in my home. The first thing I appreciated was how tall and slim the design was, which makes it easy to fit onto overcrowded countertops like mine. Next, I loved all of the options available to me in the included recipe guide. From coffee-based lattes, tea-based lattes, hot chocolate and even coffee with liquor recipes, there's truly something for every member of your home.
Using this machine is extremely simple and efficient. First, attach the whisk into the inside of the pitcher's lid. Next, add a coffee filter, appropriate amount of ground coffee or espresso and water into the back of the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte, just as you would a typical coffeemaker.
The secret to your latte is in the specialized pitcher itself. Here's where you consult your recipe guide and add the appropriate ingredients for your concoction of choice into the pitcher. For instance, for my first latte, I made a recipe of my own consisting of 13 oz. of milk (added to the double serving marking in the pitcher), 1 tablespoon of Torani Sugar-Free Classic Caramel Syrup and 6 tablespoons of gingerbread ground coffee.
Simply place the pitcher onto its specialized base, push the selector switch to the latte function and lower the on/off lever. Watch as the power light illuminates and the milk in the pitcher begins to spin and froth. Just a short while later, you'll have an entire pitcher of delicious lattes that taste amazing.
Both my husband and I were delighted at the ease of preparation and the end results from the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte machine. The drink was well mixed and the milk was frothed to perfection.
Although none of the parts are dishwasher safe, the machine was still simple enough to clean. Now we're able to enjoy a ready-made cafe latte, hot chocolate or other delectable beverage right in the comfort and convenience of our own home...much better than paying a small fortune at the local coffeehouse!
Check out these two fabulous recipes that AREN'T in the included Recipe Guide: (I never knew "slim down" and "mocha latte" to be in the same sentence before, but now I think I'm in love!)
If you're looking for the perfect gift for a coffee lover, an entire family or a person that loves entertaining, then be sure to wrap up the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte for a present that will be enjoyed and revered the whole year through!
