Are you a latte drinker? Prefer coffee? Maybe tea? I switch back and forth depending on the time of day, the season and sometimes my mood.

One thing that doesn’t change, though, is how particular I am about the taste. For me, lattes have to be done just right.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d share a delicious Lavender London Fog Latte I created using my new Milk Cafe from Breville. Don’t you just love its sleek design?!

Earl Grey Latte Topped with Lavender in White Mug

How would I describe this hot milk drink? Creamy, frothy and sweet, with notes of citrus and bergamot that you would expect in an earl grey tea. The lavender is subtle, not like some lavender drinks that can be overpowering.

I love how pretty it looks too. And calming.

It’s one of those simple things that reminds me to slow down and be present. Sip, breathe, sip… Moms need that, right?

That’s how I like to start my morning. At times, the afternoon calls for it too.

Breville Milk Cafe Features

Sometimes it’s life’s little conveniences that do the best job at taking away our stress. I love how easy the Milk Cafe is to operate. Simply add milk, select the temperature, hit start and get ready for beverage perfection. Yes, you can make a great latte at home.

Uncomplicated means I’m more likely to use it. No need to run down to my local coffee shop and spend $5 or more on one single drink. Sometimes I don’t have the willpower to turn down those baked goods behind the counter if you know what I mean!

The automatic shutoff puts my mind at ease too. This is where I could digress and tell you about my hard boiled egg incident, but I won’t. Let’s just say I’m lucky I didn’t burn the house down. Gulp!

And cleanup couldn’t be easier. Honestly, I was shocked at how quickly it went the first time I used it. Induction heating means there’s even heat distribution and no burnt-on milk. I hand wash my jug (nook and cranny-free), but they’re dishwasher safe too. 

So, if you haven’t figured it out by now, the Milk Cafe is approved by this mom. And, if you have a latte lover in your home, it’s definitely gift-worthy. Perfect for Mother’s Day!

    I’ll definitely try this London Fog! I cannot make myself buy crazy expensive drinks from Starbucks and love making them at home! This milk cafe would be a great addiction to the coffee station!
