The milk frother is super easy to use. There’s no need to mess around filling up and attaching a milk tank. Simply place your milk in a jug and insert the frother for instant, barista style results.
The brew unit is really easy to remove and reattach for cleaning.
PRO TIP: For a really intense espresso, try using the strongest flavour setting with the smallest water setting. You can then easily work back until you find your perfect taste.
