    Why doesn't home brewed coffee ever have the same 'pizazz' as the coffee you get from high street coffee chains? You use the finest coffee beans (we recommend these from illy) and carefully grind them yourself, but there's still something lacking...

    That something is almost definitely frothy milk. The problem is easy to solve with a milk frother. We offer the illy Milk Frother from the same Italian company that grind the fine beans we mentioned above. For just £64.69 inc. VAT you can be making coffee shop style coffee at home (and saving yourself a packet on all those expensive Cappuccinos, lattes and mochas you'd otherwise be buying from the likes of Costa and Starbucks!).

    Drinkmaster customer Monique had this to say after she purchased an illy Milk Frother from Drinkmaster:

    My partner purchased the illy Milk Frother for me, and that is when I discovered that the real problem with my cappuccinos was not the ingredients, as I was using the finest coffee beans Italy had to offer, it was the froth that was missing!

    The whisk based illy Milk Frother is easy to use and unlike some of the other high powered frothing machines that use steam it won't overpower a home kitchen.

    The frother has a sleek design that looks the part in a traditional or contemporary kitchen and has a small footprint so doesn't take up much space.

    The illy Milk Frother is as easy to use as a kettle. Just pour in the desired amount of milk, choose whether you would like hot frothy milk or cold frothy milk and flick the switch - that's it!

    The illy Milk Frother is really easy to clean. The internal surfaces are non-stick - you simply wipe them clean. You can't use abrasive cleaners or you will damage the non-stick surface - but the cleaning process is so quick and easy that you won't need to.

    Any kind of milk will work with this versatile frother (even soya milk), but illy recommend whole milk for hot froth and semi-skimmed for cold froth. You can even forego the frothing part by removing the whisk and just using the machine to heat up milk for your favourite hot chocolate. It's much easier than using a pan..

    The illy Milk Frother doesn't take long to work - just 1 to 2 minutes. Much less time than it takes to queue up at your local high street coffee shop!

    So go on, indulge your coffee shop barista desires and buy an illy Milk Frother from Drinkmaster and you'll be enjoying coffee shop style frothy coffee for years to come.

    illy Milk Frother features:

    • Sleek, stainless steel looks
    • Small footprint
    • Easy to clean with non-stick internal surfaces
    • Convenient and easy to use - add milk and flick the switch
    • Comes with a 24 month guarantee

  • How to make your own Mocha with Drinkmaster drinks

    Posted on November 8, 2012 by ddean

    So you got bored of our top quality PG Tips tea and Nescafé coffee, you even got bored of our luxurious Options Belgian hot chocolate; so you've been drinking Nescafé Cappuccino and Latte and cursing the fact that we don't do a mocha...

    Fret not! Here's a tasty combo that we often drink at Drinkmaster HQ - A make your own mocha that is a combination of one of our coffees and one of our chocolates.

    You'll have to experiment with the combo of coffees and teas and the proportions of each to find the mocha that's exactly to your taste - but that's part of the fun! Here are some of the things to experiment with:

    • The ratio of coffee to chocolate
    • Which coffee variety? Choose from Nescafé Gold Blend, Douwe Egberts Pure Gold and others
    • Black coffee or white coffee? - our white coffees with milk make a really creamy mocha that's extra indulgent
    • Foamy? - If you fancy a foamy mocha experience, why not try mixing a chocolate with a Nescafé Cappuccino?
    Let us know in the comments how you get on and share your favourite recipes.
