Everyone loves a flat white, cortado or morning cappuccino. Sadly most coffee consumers simply don’t have the wallet for the kind of professional steaming wands needed to make decent frothy milk. There is another way! This attractive looking machine lets you froth warm milk manually using a bit of old-fashioned elbow grease. The plunger-like design is very effective and creates silken frothy milk with plenty of small and foamy bubbles in it.
It’s a much better bet than cheap handheld battery-powered wands and made from hardy borosilicate glass that will last a lifetime. It’s dishwasher safe for easy cleaning too – a winner.Check price at Amazon »

The cork gripper makes it super comfy to hold and looks fantastic. The cup fits into a standard car beverage holder and is microwave-safe in case you want to reheat your coffee later. There are plenty of colour options available for the lids. Remember that most vendors offer a 10% discount for people bringing in reusable cups, so this really is a gift that just keeps giving!Check price at Amazon »
