There Are 3 Options For How To Make Foam For Coffee At Home

  • Electric Whisk

  • Electric Milk Frother

Electric Whisk

Coffee WhiskA whisk is the quickest and easiest method of making a frothy topping to top your hot beverage.

These are handheld devices shaped like a wand. They are powered by batteries and sometimes have an electric option.

The batteries power a coil whisk that spins at high speed.

It is a very simple gadget to operate with many wands having adjustable speed options.

How to Use Your Electric Whisk Milk Frother

Start off slowly with the wand at the bottom of the jug.

Slowly raise the whisk increasing the speed until it is just under the surface of the milk.

This method increases the amount of froth produced.

Switch off the whisker and pour your freshly foamed milk onto your freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Hand Pump Milk Frother

It takes a bit of time and effort – but it is well worth it.

This manual milk foamer is easy to use and affordable.

These gadgets require a little elbow grease when pumping. 

You will need to pull the “pump” up and then push it down through the milk to create the foam.

It is quite satisfying seeing the fruits of your labor developing as you work.

3 Advantages Of A Hand Pump Frother

They are easily transportable to any destination – whether it be to the office or an outdoor outing or picnic.

They are easily rinsed out after use for no-mess transportation back home.

These are best used for making only one or two cups of coffee at a time as small amounts of froth are easier to make.

How To Use a Hand Pump Foamer

These hand pumps have a plunger that is attached to a fine mesh screen.

When pumping the plunger up and down the milk is forced through the mesh. Thereby aerating the milk and making froth or foam.

Keep pumping until you reach your desired consistency.

By frothing milk manually, without the use of steam, you produce a lighter, longer-lasting topping. This foam won’t disappear off your coffee before you have finished drinking.
