    Milk Foam For Coffee

    Shop Now
    Ok, so I know coffee is supposed to be death in a cup, but I don't care. My adaption is foam instead of adding milk. I use a nespresso foamer which makes very light frothy foam. Nice flavor of cream with little more than the taste.

    I make cappuccinos nearly every morning. I've tried foaming 2% milk, coconut milk and hazelnut milk. To my surprise, they all foam equally well. I don't like the taste of heavy creme, its too...creamy!

    Coffee isn't death in a cup (you're thinking soda?). From the research studies I have read, a moderate amount of coffee with no added sugar might very well be healthy for you (antioxidants win again!).

    Who is telling you coffee = death in a cup? I see nothing wrong with coffee, unless you have issues with caffiene.

    Is that coconut milk out of a can or out of a carton?

    Plenty of people here drink plenty of coffee. Just don't but sugar in it.

    I put a little bit of coconut milk under the frother and it froths up a little bit. Not as much as milk would though. It's coconut milk from a can that I keep in a container in the fridge. I wait to pour it in the container when it's warm enough so that none of the fat/cram is clumped together.

    Out of a carton. I haven't tried with the canned stuff.

    All I know is that coffee tastes like crap if you forget to actually put coffee in the coffee maker. But it does make you think you should clean the coffee maker once a decade or so.
