Whisk flawless foam


Any cappuccino or latte lover will tell you that good foam is critical to a good cuppa. Little improves your morning more than the sensation of sipping on hot coffee through a creamy cloud of froth.

Trouble is, creating the perfect foam isn't nearly as easy as drinking it, so Nespresso has stepped in to help with its Aeroccino 4 milk frother, which is an advancement on the brand's former foaming appliances.

With versatility being its key draw card, this sleek machine can whisk up two types of hot foam (airy or dense) as well as hot milk and cold foam, depending on your needs, so you can use it to top the perfect cappuccino, mix a heavenly hot chocolate or experiment with more adventurous coffee recipes.

The frother is also very simple to operate - you just pour in the milk and hit the appropriate button - and because it's dishwasher safe, it's just as easy to clean. Plus, in line with Nespresso's commitment to creating beautiful home appliances, the Aeroccino 4 is also a handsome addition to a kitchen.

You can pick the frother up from the Nespresso boutiques at the V&A Waterfront or Canal Walk Shopping Centre in Cape Town, at Sandton City or the Hyde Park Shopping Centre in Johannesburg or at Gateway in Durban.
