Lattes and cappuccinos are hoity-toity coffee house fare, but these days they are as common as fast food despite lacking fast food prices. For many of us, a stop by Starbucks or some comparable coffee shop is a daily ritual. That daily ritual hits the wallet pretty hard, making finding any way one can cut into the cost of the habit a great idea. The luxury of steamed milk espresso drinks is not something most people are willing to give up, and so the advancements in single serving coffee brewing and the packaging of all of the materials necessary to make luxury espresso drinks into a single package.
Tassimo coffee machines that operate from T-Disc refills are just about the best when it comes to steamed milk espresso drinks on demand. They make it possible to enjoy an authentic cappuccino or latte at work, at home, or on the go. Cappuccino T-Discs contain the ground espresso and instant milk necessary to produce an authentic cappuccino. They even make both a Decaffeinated Cappuccino T-Disc and a Low-Fat Cappuccino T-Disc so that those who love their espresso drinks but don’t like too much caffeine or don’t want to break their diet can enjoy a nice frothy cappuccino. If you can’t kick the Starbucks habit but want to save some money, try Starbucks Cappuccino Primo T-Discs and enjoy your regular cappuccino at a fraction of the cost any time you want one.
Those with Flavia Drink Stations can enjoy an authentic cup of cappuccino thanks to Flavia’s Cappuccino Latte Swirl. The resultant cup of cappuccino is as close as you can get to the real thing without hiring your own barista.
Lattes Without Espresso
Not all steamed milk lattes are coffee drinks. Anybody who’s ever had a chai latte knows that they can be just as satisfying as an espresso latte. Chai spices and black tea combined with steamed milk yields one of the most flavorful lattes possible. Now they can be enjoyed anytime you want one, even at work. Twinings Chai Tea Latte T-Discs have all the black tea, spices, honey, and steamed milk necessary to make a quality chai latte at the push of a button. For those without a Tassimo T-Disc beverage maker, Oregon Chai Tea Packets are an instant solution that makes it just as easy to enjoy an authentic chai latte at work or on the go, at a fraction of the cost of a coffee shop chai latte.
If you want to mix up your instant lattes, I highly recommend investing in some flavored syrups. Just a splash of flavored syrup really adds authentic barista prepared coffee house flavor to any instant latte. Take a T-Disc cappuccino and turn it into a delicious vanilla latte, or add such traditional flavors as Irish Cream or Hazelnut to your latte.
There is no reason not to enjoy the luxury of coffee house lattes and cappuccinos whenever you want now. Be frugal, be smart, but don’t sacrifice what you enjoy just because it is too expensive these days.
