I’m in LOVE!
By Bobbie – “Andromeda’s Grandma”
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3CU7PSJVM9U1L Many humans buy this machine to save cash from the highpriced coffee houses.
I purchased it because the nearest emplacement I may buy a Frappe is 25 miles from home …
I likewise purchased it because I like coffee in the afternoon, and I could use decaf …
And then there’s the fact that I’m diabetic and need low carb selections …
So for me, it not only saves money, but it makes the inconceivable possible.
I’ve been using the Gevalia Dark Chocolate Truffle Ground Coffee, Decaffeinated, 8-Ounce Packages (Pack of 3), with 1/2 cup water in the top. Then in the blender I add 2 cups of ice, 3 TBS low Carb chocolate syrup, Equal, and 1/4 cup nonfat milk.
Three minutes later I have a scrumptious frappe, wholly approved by my doctor! Because of the low calorie count and the lack of caffeine, I may have as a good deal of of these as I want at any time of day. Right now I’m whipping one up for breakfast and another one in the evening as a low calorie alternate for ice cream.
Everything on this is easy to use and easy to clean. It made no more noise than the blender I was using to undertake to make my own (unsuccessfully), and not a drop leaked anywhere. Everything locks tightly for a safe and mess-free experience.
I love the recipe book included (which even has a lot of alcoholic options), but the best share for me is being competent to substitute what I like to make my very own perfective frappe. I like mine light (like McDonalds), but if you want a heavier coffee flavor, you plainly add more grounds to make it your way.
I’ve put my coffee maker away for the summer (maybe forever), and moved the blender back underneath the counter. Since this is littler than my blender, it scarcely takes any counter space.
Fortunately, I opened the box before I brought it home and realized it necessitated the 4 cup basket filters, so I was capable to grab them while I was still at the store. I purchased the 2-4 cup size which fit perfectly. But other than wishing the selective information on the filters was included in the details on the outside of the package, it was a fantasti buy for me.
I purchased this locally on sale, and as a result this will more than recompense for itself in in regards to two weeks …
*** NOTE *** The video is “real time” so you may see incisively how long it takes to go from beginning to end. It in truth took me longer to upload the video to Amazon than to make the Frappe – and in the time it takes you to watch the video, you could be sipping yours!
*** Edited Review *** I purchased a second Frappe machine for my daughter which we employed with regards to 5 times a day for a week. She is using ice cubes from her freezer, and even though we were sure her lid was secure, one of the ice cubes caught the lid faulty (or is it right) and loosened it, causing the “kitchen mess” others have reported occurred. This happened once in regarding 35 times of use.
I am using littler crushed ice and ice from an ice machine (small and round) and have not had it occur on my machine yet, even even though I have made more than 70 frappes in my machine – but I have got rid of a star, Mr Coffee actually does need to make sure the lid is secure and locks.
****Second Edit**** This morning (about 10 months after I purchased the Cafe Frappe, my unit would not power up. :’( However, I called client help and they were competent to walk me though a quick fix. I’m back up and running. Since client support is essential to me, I wanted to add this to my review.

Convenient combo machine
This product doesn’t do anything you couldn’t do on your own with a blender and a coffee machine, but the combining of the two makes the frappe-making routine much more convenient. In the few weeks I’ve owned it, I’ve found myself just making my own frappes rather of running to the local coffee shop. The accompanying recipe book offers a lot of outstanding ideas, including tea frappes. As a warning to those who don’t keep paper coffee filters around the house, the package doesn’t even include a sample filter, so you’ll need to buy four-cup size filters before you may undertake out the product.
The routine is simple. Set up the coffee brewer by placing a filter, 3-6 scoops of ground coffee, and water in the machine. In the blending pitcher, add ice cubes and other ingredients (e.g. ice cream, milk, flavor syrup, alcohol, etc.). Turn it on, and the coffee (or tea) brews directly into the pitcher, which then mechanically starts a pulsed blending cycle. There is a distinguished “blend” button that may be employed if you find the drink requires further blending once the automatic cycle is complete.
The machine has worked great for me, but there are a few reasons I’m not giving it a full five stars. The coffee flavor is a bit weak, so I on occasion also add my own shot of espresso in the blending pitcher, which sort of defeats the aim of the product (though I’m somebody who alternatively chooses the darkest straight espresso shots, so I realize others might find the by-the-book frappes fine as is). Ideally, the product would have a built-in coffee grinder so I wouldn’t likewise have a grinder to clean, but that would plainly increase it is cost. In regards to cleaning, it’s worth mentioning that the elements of the machine aren’t dishwasher safe.
If you’re like me and tend to keep a collection of gimmicky little kitchen appliances to inspire you to make things you might not other than as supposed or expected think to make, this is a outstanding item to have around. It operates well, and a heap of of the little details like the automatic pulsed blending as well as the option to carry out extra blending as necessitated render it genuinely functional.

Great Item, Saves Time
By John Anderson
I lately purchased the Mr Coffee Frappe Maker after seeing an ad for it. I thought of the times I have had to stand in the long lines at the local coffee house, how numerous times they have made my Frappe defective because they were in a rush to deal with the long lines and of course the cost they charge. I figured for $[...] it was worth a shot. The Frappe Maker gives you the control of strength of coffee or other goodies you may want in your drink, syrup, sugar, etc. The ad claims in delivers the product in 3 minutes and it does! I was personally delighted with the end product. It will have salaried for itself after a mere 20 visits to the local coffee house. I am pleased with the ease of use and the comfortableness it provides. I may make myself a Frappe in my own home saving time and money, this is a great product for those that do not have a need to impress others by drinking coffee house Frappes. I expect a great deal of other copycat merchandise following suit. Every so ofttimes a product comes along that is lowcost and does incisively what you want it to do…….this is that product and it’s affordable. Try it, if you don’t like it, return it, you will be amazed how commodious it is however.
