The Back to Basics company has really got some great ideas! Their Cocoa Latte hot drink maker is a wonderful hot cocoa machine, and so easy to use. Consumers give this cocoa maker high marks for how easy it is to use and clean. Plus, it makes a great cup of cocoa!
This author uses the Cocoa Latte daily and it always delivers the best hot cocoa. I make a pot first thing in the morning. The recipe I use makes about two to three mugs of cocoa and the Cocoa Latte hot drink maker keeps the remaining cocoa perfectly hot and completely mixed until I am ready to drink it. That pot will last an hour or two (I did say it was delicious!) and the last cup is just as good as the first.
One of the best things about this cocoa maker is the dispensing spout on the front. Just like their smoothie makers, the Back to Basics company have added a handy, lever operated dispenser on the front of their Cocoa Latte hot drink maker. This dispensing spout along with the mixing action while the cocoa is being dispensed creates a creamy and frothy cup of cocoa. Your cocoa has a lovely layer of foam on top - not too much, but just enough to add to the creaminess of the drink.
Here is the full product description from Amazon.com:
Sleek and stylish, this sophisticated hot-drink maker quickly creates deliciously soothing cafe-style beverages from the comfort and convenience of home. The unit's generous 32-ounce container features easy-to-read measurement markings and a secure lid that locks with a simple twist. Even more, its spill-free dispensing valve makes it a breeze to portion off perfectly sized mugs of steaming cocoa, flavored coffee, cappuccino, hot cider, and a host of other soul-warming drinks, whipping them to the perfect consistency with its innovative mixing paddle. Equipped with a powerful 600-watt motor, the unit heats beverages to the ideal temperature of 167 degrees F before shutting off automatically, while its foolproof on/off operation serves as a welcome contrast to more complicated and cumbersome equipment. Additional highlights include a nonstick heating surface, a stable base, and two-piece construction that cleans easily. Thirty-five straightforward recipes for concocting a variety of creative and unforgettable spiced, sweet, creamy, frothy, and gourmet hot drinks come included. The hot-drink maker measures approximately 7-1/2 by 9 by 12 inches.
Just a note, this machine is NOT a coffee maker. It will not brew coffee, but it will mix and heat coffee drinks. It will also mix and heat other types of hot beverages. There are recipes included with the Cocoa Latte hot drink maker. The recipe I use is for a simple, yet delicious hot cocoa and I would like to share it with you:
2 cups milk (I use skim to make up for using the half and half!)
1/2 cup half and half
5 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon cocoa (the baking kind)
Put it all in the Cocoa Latte machine and turn it on. I usually put it all in the cocoa machine and then go get ready for the day. When I come back to the kitchen mya piping hot cocoa is waiting for me!
