Coffee - latte
#1
Is it possible to make latte at home without an espresso machine? Just recently had a Pumpkin Spice latte from McDonald's and was really enjoying it until......my husband pointed out the cost of it Unsure Now it seems sort of silly to pay that kind of $ for a cup of Joe. Thanks for any suggestions.

I like coffee - no I LOVE coffee. But pumpkin spice latte?? Seriously???

Anyhow, back to your original question - you could probably make up some kind of latte using a good quality filter or plunger coffee and process your milk in a Nestle Aerocino or Breville Milk Cafe. It wouldn't be like a real latte, but then maybe if you put pumpkin and spice in it you wouldn't notice the difference. Dielaughing

I have loved coffee since I was old enough to know what it was. I can remember as a small child watching my maternal Grandmother create a cup of coffee in her kitchen. When I asked her if I could taste it, she told me "When you're old enough.".......as if tasting coffee was a rite of passage. When that day finally came, she doctored up my coffee with more cream than coffee and that put me off coffee for along time.

I would not know the difference between a real latte and a fake one. I love cappuccino however since my diabetes diagnosis, I sort of gave them up. Unfortunately I do enjoy a sweetened coffee now and I probably should not be loving it so much.

If you have a Keurig, you could buy the single Serving Pumpkin Spice K Cup and then add whipped cream.

Thanks.........Now - why didn't I think of that? Probably because I already have a "stash" of the K cups in my cupboard. I will have to sneak a new box of Pump Spice cups into the house Thinking-about

Hi GrammaBear,
When I drink coffee, I don’t put anything in mine, I like it black.
Infack, when I made coffee one time when my mom was down to visit, I made it real strong. Her comment was, OOO, Granpa’s coffee. My great grandpa liked it strong and that’s the way I like it, too, (Ha-Ha.)

I guess since pumpkin spice is so expensive, you could pick a special time and buy it ev ery so often.

I have to agree on Pumpkin coffee... But, it's Halloween; and pumpkins are everywhere.

We have tombstones and spider webs in the front yard.

Speaking of Halloween, we got 113 children last year. I'm thinking of leaving town for the day. Unsure

Or, I could give them a pumpkin spice k cup and they would never come back. Grin
Yep, sounds like a plan.
