Don't judge, but I'm the idiot who used to throw down $7 daily on a hot, thick, foamy latte. It's terrifying to do the math and see just how much I spent annually on coffee. And not even great coffee. It was passable, at best; its best quality was that it was convenient. Let's not even get into how many paper cups and plastic lids I've used. But I'm the idiot who loves a foam cloud on her drink. So much foam.
So allow me to introduce you to the Cafe Casa "Make Your Marista Jealous" milk frother, which finally broke my overpriced java addiction. It turns out I'm not its only fan. Amazon shoppers gush about this thing. And right now, it's on sale, down from 25 bucks to just $18 with the on-page coupon. If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. And if not, you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (BTW, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
The Cafe Casa frother, which is battery-operated, is 11 inches tall. It stands on its own, meaning you can leave it on the counter (and won't be tempted to shove it into your junk drawer and crush it). The contoured handle makes it easy to control, so you won't be faced with spatters of foam all over your walls.
But here's the best part: It improves just about every type of drink imaginable. Protein shakes? Yes. Hot chocolate? Sure. Matcha? You bet. Bone broth? Totally. And of course, coffee. It has two power settings, so you can toggle to get that perfect froth. You'll use this thing constantly.
To make your setup professional, all you need is an inexpensive metal pitcher. Pour the milk into said pitcher. Set the active end of the frother inside, and press the button. It does its job in 15 or 20 seconds. Then add the frothed milk to your coffee. Done.
The best part is this gadget goes beyond drinks. It makes the absolute lightest, fluffiest scrambled eggs. Just follow the process above. Crack the eggs into your pitcher, add milk (or not) and froth away.
Need whipped cream? The Cafe Casa frother has you covered. Pour heavy cream into the pitcher, and whip away.
Maybe it's me, but there's something intensely satisfying about the entire process. It's soothing and almost magical, watching liquid turn into soft, delicate foam. And just as satisfying is calculating the cash I'm not spending on pricey coffee — $7 at a time.
