Aerolatte – Used and Reviewed

13 07 2009

Photo from aerolatte.comWe got our hands on an Aerolatte after seeing it in the Wired $879 Office product review. The short version is we liked it so much, we bought another one from Amazon.

For our review, Aerolatte sent us their top of the line ‘professional’ stainless steel model. It has a bigger motor, but we could not tell the difference between its functionality over the ‘regular’ model. But it is stainless steel – ipso facto it is fancier. It has the same form factor as the other version but is a little heavier and comes with a stand so you can proudly display your air infusing milk mangler to all who come through your kitchen. If stainless and stands do not fit your decor, there have gray, white, black and a spotted black and white one.

Who are we to say it how it works? We are glad we asked. Our primary reviewer of the Aerolatte worked at a coffee shop for a while and used the big machines. His verdict – “the Aerolatte does just as good a job, if not better at frothing milk. The best part is no steam, so no water in the milk – you microwave the milk, then froth. 2% milk froths like whole milk with it.”

As coffee snobs having foregone drip makers for the Aeropress (does not work well as Frisbee), we are always in search of a better brew – and we found it. We say put your beans through the Aeropress and the Aerolatte through your milk to make a $4 cup of coffee without putting on pants (note: both still work if you are wearing pants, but not without two ‘AA’ batteries which are included). When you finish – pick up your cup, extend your pinky and tell the six people that follow you on Twitter how fancy you are.

In closing – Thumbs up! Frothy milky mustaches all around! Next time you class up the kitchen with fancy coffee, do it right…or any other concoction you find or create.

We were going to link to a story about the FCC requiring us to tell you Aerolatte sent us one of these at no cost, but we fell asleep looking at their website.
