Introducing the new Keurig Milk Frother
Keurig Milk Frother Buyers’ Guide
Skim or nonfat milk is best for cappuccinos as they produce large foam bubbles when frothed. Because there is no or a very low amount of fat in the milk, the frothing results in a light and airy mixture which tastes slightly less rich compared to other milk types. 2% milk will produce a similar foam but will have a more creamy flavor compared to nonfat milk. The fat in whole milk weighs down the foam and makes the milk harder to froth, but it produces the most rich-tasting cappuccino. Other types of milk, such as soy or almond milk, will be easily frothed but will lose the bubbles easily due to their pasteurization process and protein structure elements.
A milk frother is a device used to froth milk, which is later added to coffee to make cappuccinos, lattes, and so on. The mechanism behind frothed milk is based on milk aeration. This means frothing is basically finding a way to introduce air and trap it into the milk. This is done by quickly agitating air into the milk, and then a thick and heavy foam full of air bubbles is produced. These small bubbles that are formed make the milk consistency lighter and increase the volume. The Keurig milk frother includes a jug where the milk is poured, a lid, a power base, and a whisk for the foam. It runs on electricity and only requires you to push a button to froth the milk.
