The Grundig Milk Frother puts the crown on your kitchen café
From Vienna to Turkey, Seattle to Rome, Havana to Melbourne, there is no shortage of great coffee cities in which lovers can indulge. If you already have the perfect brew however, but want to create a kitchen café atmosphere at home, you’ll need to make some tweaks to your kitchen décor and appliances.
- First things first, to transform your kitchen into a café you’ll need the right gear. If you’ve been blessed with a big kitchen, nothing beats a professional coffee and espresso machine. However, many home appliance brands produce coffee brewing machines that are perfect for kitchens with limited countertop space. Grundig for instance, offers a range of coffee makers, in a variety of colours and styles, offering functionalities to suit every taste.
- Once you’ve made the perfect cup, you’ll need to put the crowning glory on top: luscious milk foam. While other frothers might leave your coffee with a thin hint of froth, the Grundig Kitchen Helpers White Sense MF 7280 W Milk Frother creates a sumptuous foam of micro bubbles in seconds. With a double non-stick coating and special drip-free spout, your frothy masterpiece will be silky smooth and perfectly poured. Furthermore, its 360º base and neutral white colour ensure it suits any kitchen café style. It’s just what you need for your morning cappuccino, Viennese Melange, or cold Greek-style frappé!
- The perfect coffee however, is nothing without the perfect snack pairing and when you’re at home you have the added bonus of indulging in something more satisfying than the standard amoretti biscuit in the plastic wrapper! Perfect for dunking, traditional almond biscotti is a wonderful option. North Americans love their doughnuts, and so do we, but to increase the chic-factor, try bite-sized beignets dusted with confectioner’s sugar. Though scones might be considered more appropriate for high tea, they also are wonderful additions to a coffee date.
- Finally, when you’ve got the gear and the goodies, you’ll need to create a great kitchen café vibe with the right décor. If your style is more Portland than Paris, include a rustic dining table with bench seating, large earthenware mugs and to top it all off pipe in music by indie artists like Bright Eyes, Sufran Stevens and Caribou. When you want create an exotic ambiance, be sure to outfit your kitchen with natural materials like terra cotta floor tiles, as well as boldly coloured window treatments and antique Turkish-style rugs. Then serve your coffee in delicate demitasse cups and set your table with a bowl of pink roses. And when all things are set, take your frappe and enjoy your much-deserved break!
