I love good coffee, really good coffee. I am missing coffee back in Melbourne. It is not easy to find a cafe that serves consistent good coffee in Sydney. Not a exactly a coffee snob and do have a rationale about it. The beans in Sydney are great when I try the pour overs. However, the cafe here lacks consistency. And the taste of the latte does not hit the markt. But I have concocted a rationale. I reckon it is the type of milk used in Sydney that I am not accustomed to. So far, there is only one cafe in Sydney that comes close to the taste of Melbourne and I shall chat about that in another post.
On weekends that I am too lazy to head out for my first coffee of the day, I count on my espresso machine at home. It isn’t the best but does it job. We usually have espresso at home as I suck at frothing milk. I even attended a basic barista course in Melbourne but that did little to improve my frothing skills. So hopefully with the help of Devondale Barista’s Own Frothing Milk, I have a better chance of succeeding?
I had a taste of Barista’s Own before frothing it. It tastes a little like light milk. The question is “Does a low fat milk froth well? Will it be creamy?” I was pleasantly surprised. The milk frothed quickly and the coffee had a really creamy texture.
I tried my hardest but cannot create those lovely beautiful coffee swirls. Does my latte look decent? I reckon with more practise I should be able to get a simple swirl.
There are some great tips that can be found on the website. The biggest tip that is really helpful is chilling the milk and getting it at the right temperature. Things that you should know about about Barista’s Own Frothing Milk:
- No preservatives – Milk is pasteurized at an ultra high temperature and sealed in a special stay fresh pack. This means that the milk can be kept in pantry for emergency use and there will be no more painful early morning walk out to get milk for coffee
- Reduced fat
