Nanofoamer – Microfoam Bliss Or Latte Art Miss

I've said it before...

and I'll say it again, consistently steaming glossy, smooth, microfoam is one of the hardest parts about being a barista. Even I have my off steams, but now there is a new product that claims to help you get that treasured latte art capable foam and it fits in the palm of your hand; the Subminimal Nanofoamer. Fancy name aside it seems like a pretty simple mechanism. Using two small screens, "Fine" and "Super Fine", attached to a small battery powered motor are designed to spin and texture ย your milk into cafe quality microfoam bliss in 20 seconds.

The fact is there are many milk texturing products out there for those who don't have access to a steam wand. Yet, very few of them produce that velvety foam that you'll get from a skilled barista. Having tried a few over the years there doesn't seem to be much consistency to controllability. So if the Nanofoamer can not only produce that foam I crave, but also do it consistently I'd say you've got a winning product. Yet, having reached their Kickstarter goal in the their first day I don't think they really need my help. Regardless, I want to give a try, so hit play on that video above and see if it lives up to its claims and my hefty expectations.
