I thought this gadget was the biggest waste of money  - UNTIL I received one as a present.  Look for them in big box retailers or online and pick one up.  Whisking by hand works too and is free.

Now comes the easy, hard, cheap, expensive part.  If you have a personal cup coffee maker-brew up a cup of espresso OR Make a cup of coffee at a ratio of 3 coffee to 1 water manually.  Your choice !

I know a "barista" would throw me out for calling this a latte. But it is better than paying $7 for a real latte. This I can make at home WHENEVER the mood suits me. Enjoy w flavored creamers too!
