Barista Style Coffee at Home {With Devondale Baristas Own Frothing Milk} & Giveaway [CLOSED]

Sponsored by Murray Goulburn and Nuffnang

A good morning start for me involves a good cup of coffee. I must admit my preference for coffee has evolved a lot since my university days, from instant coffee to coffee bags and now cafe latte. Even though I love getting coffee from my favourite coffee shop in Orange, there were days I just want to enjoy my coffee in the comfort of my home, in my pajamas. This led to my first purchase of a coffee machine (the one which uses coffee pods) which in my mind, pretty much delivers a barista style coffee at a fraction of the price minus the hassle of lining up for coffee.

I like my coffee to be creamy and slightly frothy. When I’m outside, I usually go for cafe latte. But when I’m at home, I personalise my cafe latte a cross between a cappuccino and latte – basically served in a tall latte glass with a nice layer steamed milk froth. It is pretty obvious that I like my coffee to be heavy on the milk. To achieve the creamy consistency, I like to add either soy or full cream milk.  So when I was introduced to the Barista’s Own Frothing Milk by Devondale, I was intrigued because I couldn’t imagine how long life milk could substitute fresh milk to deliver a barista style coffee. Well, guess what? I was pleasantly surprised.

It is  smooth, creamy, froths well in a frother and best of all, it is made with 2% fat milk. If you are wondering if it has the “funny” taste which screams long life milk, my answer is no. I have also tried heating the milk in the microwave for a minute (depending the size of your mug) and then letting the coffee drip into the milk (I do that sometimes when I’m super lazy). I can still taste the thickness and creaminess in the coffee which I am really pleased about.

In addition to Barista’s Own Frothing Milk for a cafe-style coffee experience, wouldn’t it be nice to have pretty cups and saucers to go with the coffee?

In saying that, I’m excited to partner with Devondale and Nuffnang to give away 4 sets of 6 orange espresso cups and saucers from Espresso Italia. Each set is to be given away each week over the 4-weeks duration of the Devondale’s Barista’s Own Frothing Milk campaign.

    All the coffee in Columbia won’t make me a morning person… however, Devondale Barista’s Own Frothing Milk would help get my lazy Sunday off to a perfect start with its delicious frothy goodness! A warm coffee on a cold winters morning is a match made in heaven! Thanks, Matt

    Currently, I have to hand “froth” aka whip up the milk. That does not make for a “lazy Sunday”. More like a sweaty, messy and miss the sunrise Sunday. This would be a great treat in my house!

    My favorite Sundays begin slowly. Sipping coffee while my daughter watches a show, enjoying our morning snuggle. More than lazy Sundays, this would help me on lazy Mondays when I Need to get my butt to work on time!

    The best part of a frothy crema is the Milk Moustache you get – what better way to start a Sunday morning than with a silly giggle? :)

    Sunday mornings really are lazy here, breakfast is normally skipped in preference for a brunch, but a morning coffee is still needed to get the day moving. Baristas Own frothing milk used to made a cappuccino with some sweet chocolate powder and cinnamon sprinkled on top. A lazy morning heart starter, in fact I think two would be needed.

    My husband claims I make awful coffee. Easy solution. I leave him to make one for both of us. My Sunday would be off to an even more perfect start when I tell him I have a new milk for him to try. He’ll skip into the kitchen and I’ll get an extra five minutes sleep in.

    The only barista in my family is my husband & he’s always complaining that the milk doesnt froth – with Barista’s own frothing milk we’ll see if it is the milk or it’s his coffee making skills

    Instead of frothing at the mouth with annoyance at an ill made coffee by my not-so-skilled-in-the-kitchen man, I’ll be frothing at the mouth with delight (literally) with Barista’s Own Frothing Milk.

    On a lazy Sunday morning my sleep-ins are normally doubling,
    But Baristas own frothing milk will always get my Sunday mornings “Bubbling”.

    It means I can stay home and have that in-house barista exeprience instead of going out to find a frothy coffee!
