Dualit Latteccino Milk Frother

So you’ve bought your new coffee machine, whether it’s a Nespresso machine, Caffitaly machine, Senseo or any traditional ground coffee machine. You’re all happy making your first cup of coffee and then you realize – Oh my gosh! My coffee machine doesn’t have a milk frother nozzle! I can only make espressos…

Ok – That may be a little extreme because I’m sure you’ve made a serious market research before shopping for such a trendy and useful appliance for your kitchen. If you decided to buy an espresso machine without a milk frothing nozzle, you must have meant for that to be so.

But let’s say you didn’t… Hold on to that thought for a second.

Now let’s assume you do like to have cappuccinos as well and you did buy a Nespresso machine with a milk frothing nozzle or any other coffee machine for that matter. I don’t want to be the one to break it to you, but there is a good chance that you may get tired of waiting when switching between coffee mode and milk mode on your machine, and of all the hassle and cleanup.
