As I love coffee, but don't nearly have money for a serious espresso machine, I was recommended the Mypressi twist.  I absolutely love it, and its great.  I was faced with the question: how do you steam milk?  The answer:  go to target, buy the cheapest espresso machine they sell, and use it solely for milk steaming.

While it takes a while to warm up, and spits out wet steam for a few minutes first, once its warmed up it works quite well!  I no have an espresso machine looking thing solely for milk steaming. The real espresso machine as the weird gun looking thing next to it. :)

I'm amazed, but there IS a good use for a super cheap espresso machine.

I agree, I got really nice microfoam from my krupps however now that I have Oscar I realize it took forever to make the milk hot.

Oh it takes forever and a day! :)

I'm pulling my shots on a mypressi twist.  Speed and effeciency aren't really what I'm going for here.  More so quality on a big time budget!
