Cocoa Latte Machine (Plow and Hearth) Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors!

Beautiful day here At the Fence! I finished some work around the house and thought I would take a quick trip out At the Fence to visit with my neighbors. I have a really neat product that my daughters love! It is a Cocoa Latte Machine ($39.95) I received from Plow and Hearth. My two older daughters are really enjoying using the machine. See they love iced coffees, so they do up their favorite flavors, use the froth button on the machine and serve it over ice. I am sure when the cold weather returns they will be doing hot drinks!


This Cocoa Latte machine makes cocoa, coffee and tea, and you can add mixes and syrups. You can make up to 32 ounces of your choice of beverage. (Do not fill past the 32 ounce maximum fill line.) To make the 32 ounces, pour in water or milk and 8 tablespoons of your favorite instant mix. Put the lid on making sure that the lid covers the spout. Plug in the machine and press the on switch. The Drink Maker will begin to mix and heat. It will automatically idle when the drink reaches the perfect temperature. When the appliance goes idle you may dispense the beverage into your cup. There is a froth button you may press before dispensing and it will make a rich layer of froth in your cup along with the beverage. Make sure you turn the appliance off when you are done or the container has less than a cup left. The Cocoa Latte machine will keep the left over beverage at the perfect temperature by automatically restarting the motor and mixer when the beverage starts to cool, as long as you leave the switch on. You may at any time hit the switch off.




There are recipes in the instruction manual for all sorts of hot drinks. My daughter made the Cafe Au Lait and added vanilla flavor, and then dispensed it over ice. They also tried the Mochaccino which is made with milk, chocolate syrup, water, instant coffee and whipping cream. Needless to say we are getting a lot of use out of this machine and I know it will be used even more this fall and winter. You can make coffee based beverages, including a coffee float, Espresso style Beverages, Steamed and Flavored Milk, Hot Wassails, Punches, Ciders, Chai Lattes and Hot Teas. And as I stated earlier, my daughters are experimenting with pouring them over ice!


I love to browse the Plow and Hearth website. They have so many nice products! I could seriously re-decorate my home with many of their items! They also have sister stores, Magic Cabin, Problem Solvers, Wind and Weather and Winterthur store. You have seen a couple of them mentioned on my blog. You can also find Plow and Hearth on Facebook.

I dont know if this qualifies as a latte but I do love the white chocolate cocoa, a hit of Baileys and a large dollop of canned light whipping cream. a tiny touch of cinnamon sugar on the top to finish it off! My sisters have a fall weekend to get away for a night with our mom and this is what we have...the latte machine would be SO great to take with us!
