I bought it because the nearest location I can buy a Frappe is 25 miles from home ...
I also bought 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 choices ...
So for me, it not only saves money, but it makes the impossible 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, fully approved by my doctor! Because of the low calorie count and the lack of caffeine, I can have as many 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 substitute 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 try 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 some alcoholic options), but the best part for me is being able to substitute what I like to make my very own perfect frappe. I like mine light (like McDonalds), but if you want a heavier coffee flavor, you simply 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 under the counter. Since this is smaller than my blender, it hardly takes any counter space.
Fortunately, I opened the box before I brought it home and realized it needed the 4 cup basket filters, so I was able to grab them while I was still at the store. I bought the 2-4 cup size which fit perfectly. But other than wishing the information on the filters was included in the details on the outside of the package, it was a wonderful purchase for me.
I bought this locally on sale, and as a result this will more than pay for itself in about two weeks ...
*** NOTE *** The video is "real time" so you can see exactly how long it takes to go from beginning to end. It actually 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!
Mr. Coffee has recently come out with a latte maker Mr. Coffee BVMC-EL1 Cafe Latte. If you are looking for something similar to use for your winter drinks, it is nearly as awesome as the frappe maker. I have posted a video there as well, and now rotate between them based on season.
*** Edited Review *** I purchased a second Frappe machine for my daughter which we used about 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 wrong (or is it right) and loosened it, causing the "kitchen mess" others have reported occurred. This happened once in about 35 times of use.
I am using smaller crushed ice and ice from an ice machine (small and round) and have not had it happen on my machine yet, even though I have made more than 70 frappes in my machine - but I have removed a star, Mr Coffee really 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 customer support and they were able to walk me though a quick fix. I'm back up and running. Since customer support is important to me, I wanted to add this to my review.
*** Updated Dec 2012. The Frappe maker survived the move to a more civilized location, in easy driving distance, but the ice maker that keeps it supplied did not! After looking at the price of Frappes, I am continuing to make my own.
*** Updated May 2013. It started getting warm again, and I pulled out my Frappe Maker once again. It works just as good as ever! You should know that I am now on my third ice making machine to supply ice to this, my favorite appliance. If it ever gives up the ghost for real, I won't have to even consider whether it is worth replacing, I will buy a new one, with overnight shipping - since I have prime, it costs less to ship overnight than to buy even one frappe.
I followed the Caramel Cappuccino Frappe recipe in the book provided and I was so pleased with the outcome. It calls for butterscotch-caramel dessert topping (pictured above), which I couldn't initially find, so I used Smucker's caramel topping and that worked great too. It also called for dark roast coffee or espresso, but I just used regular Folgers because I'm not a fan of super strong coffee. This was so delicious! I am NEVER going back to Starbucks and paying almost five dollars for a frappe again. I even put the drink in my Starbuck's tumbler (pictured above) that I purchased from the store. This appliance blends the ice even better than Starbucks. It is just amazing. My husband couldn't believe that I made it when he tried it. We are just so very pleased with this machine and I would recommend it to any frappe fan that is tired of paying those ridiculous prices.
*Be careful not to try using this if you have sleeping babies or children because it's really-really loud.
*Towards the end of running the automatic frappe cycle, the machine starts to get an unpleasant burning smell. I'm not sure if this is just mine?
*The only difference between these frappuccinos and the Starbucks frappuccinos is the texture. The texture from this is a little more like a slurpee texture compared to Starbucks.
Overall, this is amazing! I'm pretty much planning on NEVER going to Starbucks again except to purchase more Frappuccino Tumblers to hold my homemade frappes(; Save yourself so much money and just buy this.
I love Starbucks' caramel frappuccinos. You can find Starbucks copycat recipes on Pinterest and even tweek them a little bit to your liking. I use
2 tablespoons medium coffee
1/2 cup water
2 cups ice (fill ice to the "MAX ICE" line)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup caramel syrup
The whole process literally takes 5 minutes to make. And you can even put your homemade frappe in a Starbucks Frappuccino Cold Cup Tumbler!
