Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

steamer or frother for breve lattes?


we love our breve lattes around here but sold the 50 lb lavazza espresso maker when the farm sold. 

I do have an insulated Nissan French press and can make my java as strong as needed, but how to steam the cream?

what does a frother do? seems it froths but the cream stays cold?

that won't do--it needs to be HOT!!!

will I need to nuke the cream before frothing? I will if necessary but if there's an easier way i'd like to try that.

thanks latte lovers!

Another alternative to the French Press is an Aero Press for the espresso, we much prefer the flavor. For frothing we bought a very inexpensive frother from IKEA, we nuke the 1/2 & 1/2, use the Aero Press and fulfill our daily latte addiction.

Meh.....

....."froo-froo" coffee just won't cut it with me.  And, I'll certainly never pay the price for Starbucks.

we're not big fans of starbucks--though honest to god I tried like heck to be a good barista when I worked there one holiday season, and some of their offerings are just right some days.

but damn a breve latte is too good to call froo froo--it's espresso with steamed cream--thick and rich and naturally sweet.
one large one is good for breakfast--all the protein and fat I need to keep me going.
I mostly do decaf or dh suffers from my caffeine mania,lol.

We have a Hamilton Beach pump espresso machine that we bought at Wal-Mart for about $80 plus tax. I have frothed the milk a few times and it does work well. Mostly we take the easy way out and make skim milk lattes, but heat the milk in the microwave. They still tastes better than many baristas do, especially in out of the way areas.

Edit: Here is an Amazon link to the machine we own - http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-Beach-40715-Espresso-Maker/dp/B003D66TXA/ref=sr_1_1 .  The reviews are all over the place, but ours has worked well.  We have also seen it at Target.

We don't do fancy coffee but we have the Nissan French Press and really like it because it keeps the coffee hot since it is insulated. It is part of our camping equipment. Otherwise, we use an old fashioned drip coffee maker we got from a retailer that is "non-electric" in Amish country.

The Nepresso Aeroccino is excellent! Makes cold or hot froth.
