How to make gourmet coffee at home?

Guess what this is???? Maybe all you coffee drinkers might know what it is?
I went to Daiso the other day and was super excited to try out the "Milk Bubble Maker"!!! :P I like how it is named :P
But it is just a milk frother. My last post was about what I've baked and so I thought that a coffee/tea post following my previous one would be appropriate. :p

My new milk frother/milk bubble maker came in the typical plastic packaged like this:

The back of the packaging had illustrations showing how to assemble it:
and instructions on how to use it (as well as how NOT to use it):
This was what really caught my attention :P I want my coffee to look like the way they do in coffee cafe's!

Shall we get started?
I had to put batteries because it wasn't included. Boo!

1. Milk!!!:
I just heated up the milk in the microwave for a minute or two. I thought it was easier and faster this way. :p
I like how this milk comes from "free farmed" cows :) Maybe Karen (from Allur of CF Beauty) will be proud of me because the American Humane Association makes sure that these cows are free from cruelty and abuse? :)

2. The milk is all heated and ready to be frothed!

3. Add milk to coffee!
I was trying to make a "cappuccino"(mixture of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam).  The milk-foam ratio is entirely up to your liking! :) I usually just add equal amounts of each but I was too excited and hasty so I just added the coffee to this same mug. -__-;
4. Optional: Sprinkle with ground chocolate, cinnamon, or nutmeg.
(I didn't do this step though)
5. You're done! :)
This was my first time using a milk frother and I'm very happy with how my coffee turned out! :) It was easy and fun to use. I liked how it did not take very long to make as well.
Maybe the next time I do this, my cappuccino would look and taste better. :p

How have you been? How's your summer going?

Cute!! I actually purchased something like this before and tried it out. It was pretty cool to make the milk fluffy in my cup of coco. hehe. =)
