My friends and I love hanging out at our local starbucks enjoying a latte or cappuccino over some great conversation.  As much as I like starbucks latte’s, I LOVE to make a latte at home.  It’s not as difficult as you would think, and it always tastes better at home!  Now there are two ways that you can make it if you’ve got a Tassimo Single-Serve Coffee Brewer.  The first way, is to use JUST the Tassimo Single-Serve Coffee Brewer with the two k-discs.  For this method, you’re going to need the Gevalia Espresso, T-Discs and the Tassimo Latte Milk Creamer T-disc.

The other method to make a latte at home is with an Aerolatte Milk Frother. For this we’re going to start the same way.  Make your espresso with the Gevalia Espresso T-Discs,  only in taller glass (or mug). In a separate container, I use a Stainless Steel Milk Frothing Pitcher but any tall glass or container will do, pour about 2.5-3 oz of warm milk and turn the aerolatte milk frother on.  Froth the milk for around 20-30 sec (or until you get the milk frothed to the consistency you like) and remove it from the milk.  Slowly pour the milk into the glass (or mug) with the espresso allowing the milk to pour first with the foam to follow.   There you have it.  The other method to make a latte at home.
