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.
John Lee, a former beat cop who became Hong Kong's security chief and played a key role in suppressing democracy protests, became the business hub's new leader on Friday in a ceremony overseen by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The gruesome killing of a Hindu tailor has inflamed religious tensions in India and sparked a furious response on social media, including calls for reprisal attacks against the country's Muslim minority.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party is returning to power in the country's richest state, Maharashtra, giving it a fillip ahead of the 2024 national election after an unlikely ruling alliance of parties crumbled after more than two years. Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party will now form the government in Mumbai's home state along with a faction of the regional Shiv Sena party, which surprised analysts by tying up with ideologically opposed parties such as Congress after the 2019 state election to oust the BJP. Both the BJP and the Shiv Sena draw their support mainly from the majority Hindu community.
India's Virat Kohli could line up beside Pakistan skipper Babar Azam in the same team next year with the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) planning to revive the Afro-Asia Cup. The 50-overs series was first played in 2005 before being discontinued after its next edition in 2007 as relations between India and Pakistan soured. Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene led an Asia XI that also included players from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh in the last edition, beating an Africa side comprising cricketers from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya 3-0.
Thousands of people protested in the Indian city of Udaipur on Thursday following the murder of a Hindu tailor, with many calling for the two Muslim men accused of killing him to get the death penalty.
Dialogue between Myanmar's junta and ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi to end the bloody crisis unleashed by the toppling of her government last year is "not impossible", a junta spokesman told AFP on Friday.
China accused New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Friday of making "wrong and thus regrettable" statements that were unhelpful for keeping the two countries' relationship "on the right track".
India has imposed windfall tax on oil producers and refiners who have boosted product exports to gain from higher overseas margins as the government seeks to increase local supply of fuels to meet rising demand and increase federal revenues. New taxes along with export restrictions will curb fuel exports by refiners Reliance Industries and Nayara Energy, part-owned by Russia's Rosneft, and could further tighten global oil product supplies and support prices.
The US Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the government's key environmental agency cannot issue broad limits on greenhouse gases, sharply curtailing the power of President Joe Biden's administration to battle climate change.
