Re: Calling All Coffee Addicts

The milk powder used by Starbucks is of questionable origins. Their milk suppliers inject recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in their cows, an artificial growth hormone developed by Monsanto and sold by Eli Lily under the brand-name 'Posilac'. It causes mastitis and injection site reactions in the cows. The pus from the injection site reactions then travels to the udder attachments (that pneumatically extract milk) and end up in the milk powder - dead cells, toxins and all. Posilac is as of now only used in the USA, being banned in about 27 countries.

No wonder the taste of their coffee is unique!

Starbucks utilizes unfair trade practices to weed out competition even from small family-owned stores that take maybe 5 to 10 minutes more than them in making a cup of coffee using unprocessed ingredients. I have heard of a case where such a shop running for decades was surrounded by four Starbucks stores within a 100 meter radius. Then most of the customers in that area started to prefer convenience over variety (or even hygiene) and after a few years, that family business had to shut shop. Over the course of the next few months, three of those four neighbouring Starbucks were closed down.

Just some food for thought for you folks, the next time you visit a Starbucks and find that they are out of donuts!

Re: Calling All Coffee Addicts

Well the first espresso turned out to be a disaster .My cup of instant coffee was way better than the thingie I made today.

Watched tons of video after the incident and will give it a shot again tomorrow.

Have got Arabica Variety from CCD for now.

@TNT

Gave it one more attempt,this time the espresso shot was better than the previous one but again failed to froth the milk.It was thin as water

Any pointers on frothing milk???

Re: Calling All Coffee Addicts

Try using a different variety of milk. Use milk that is at the right temperature. It should be cool enough to take small sips, but not so hot so as to burn your tastebuds. Try using a blender at its lowest speed.
