Father’s Day is right around the corner, and I always have a tough time shopping for my Father and Father in Law. It seems that they don’t ever want or ask for anything, but then I always find the things that they ‘need’. Those ‘needs’ aren’t always what they want as gifts (clothes, undershirts, socks, etc). I was so excited to have the opportunity to review the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista! I couldn’t wait to get it, as lately I’ve been in LOVE with anything coffee, espresso, lattes, etc. When the box arrived, I couldn’t wait to get home from work and open it! It is now safely sitting next to my Keurig on the counter top.
The set up of the cafe barista was a bit overwhelming– there are so many moving parts and ways to use this machine. You see, you add in Espresso Coffee and milk, along with water. Then, you can pick from espresso, cappuccino, or even a latte to make! I LOVE that the cleaning cycle makes life easy too. I am a mom-to-be and will be definitely a mom on the go, having a machine that cleans itself is a must. I love that is also includes a recipe book too.
I was surprised at how easy it was to make an espresso! I chose to make a single espresso and a double espresso– you simply pack the espresso with the tool they gave you and then lock into place on the machine. After that, just hit the button and 30 seconds later you have a delicious espresso!
Bring the coffeehouse home with the ultimate gift for gourmet espresso lovers! The Mr. Coffee® Café Barista brews gourmet, specialty coffeehouse-style beverages in the comfort of home at a fraction of the cost using a 15-bar pump that delivers bold espresso and perfectly frothed milk to create cappuccinos, lattes and more at the touch of a button. Delicious espresso is automatically dispensed into the rich and creamy milk whipped up by the automatic frothing system. Pre-programmed settings measure just the right amount of ingredients and selectable brew sizes range from a 2-oz espresso shot to a full 8-oz cup. A special cleaning cycle makes clean-up hassle-free. Included recipe booklet features best-of-the-season beverages!
