Posted Sat Jan 5, 2013, 9:45pm Subject: A good use for a $39 espresso machine!
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.
