    Hi all,

    I was looking around for a froth maker and found the below jem!

    http://www.amazon.com/BonJour-Caffe-...4459498&sr=8-5

    TIA

    it looks like a plunger. maybe you could use the plunger you have. (once youve cleaned the coffee out.) its hard to say the description doesnt describe if its unique in any way.

      Hi Silverpearl,
      its called a milk frother and theyre readily available here. Try the 2 dollar shops, the kitchen aisle at the department stores, kitchen shops, etc.

        Or those battery-operated wands. Not the real thing. Like steam. Reminds me of the double-wall baskets which are supposed to produce crema.

          not that i recommend getting anything from amazon but shipping is more like 8 days from USA and with the strong aus $ you can get some cheap stuff at the moment. Its the cost of the shipping that gets you.

            If its despatched by sea, try 3 months.

              In theory if the milk is gently heated to the right temperature, which I do in an ubrick on the stove, and then whiked the right way I reckon you should be able to get microfoam and caramelized flavour.

              I use an Avanti battery whisk which I think is limited by its lack of power. I am going to try and build up a high powered whisk using a motor usually used for remote control helicopters (an electric motor, not two stroke)

              i will try anything if it avoids purchasing more cumbursome kitchen clutter (ie a steam frother or other espresso mach)

                Hehehe ... a few years ago I took a friends lux grinder and a french press/plunger to a conference in Perth. One of the Italian delegates and I met up for breakfast every day to make coffee using more grounds than usual. Then we cleaned out the french press, added some heated milk and "foamed" it up. It wasnt anything like what youd get from an espresso machine, but it was OK.

                Cheers,

                Luca

                  The difference in cost isnt all that different either.

                  Being the impatient type I spend a wee bit more and opt for airmail.
