If you find yourself hitting the coffee shop every day just a little too often, you might want to consider brewing your own espressos. And where would you be without the best Nespresso machine, the Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Forther, to do just that. But of course, a shot of espresso isn’t complete without creamy frothing on top.

Why We Like It – Nespresso Milk Frother

The Nespresso Vertuo is for the coffee lover who wants that premium Nespresso brand, but also loves the added layer of frothy milk over their espresso.

  • Wide variety of beverage sizes
  • Easy to use; one-button interface
  • Very compact design
  • Only accepts Nepresso pods
  • Base model doesn’t include aeroccino


Pop in a Nespresso pod—the only kind it accepts—, turn the dial at the top for your size, and press the button. It’s that easy to start enjoying a cup of coffee or espresso with the Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Forther. And it only takes about 10 to 20 seconds to warm up, which is faster than the Nespresso CitiZ.

The aeroccino itself—an electric milk frother—works well when given the task to make cold milk froth if you prefer cold froth on coffee or froth hot milk for cappuccinos and hot chocolate. For adequate milk temperatures, it only takes but a few seconds to get it ready.


Rather than go for a boring design, like the Mueller Espresso Machine, the Nespresso Vertuo is stylish. Function is obviously worth more than the way it looks, but its aesthetics matter—especially if you’re looking to match your home. It comes with a black, red, chrome (similar to stainless steel), matte black, or titan finish. Plenty of options available to sync with your home’s color scheme. It’s equipped with a 40-ounce water tank, and a maximum capacity of 14 pods, which is 10 ounces smaller than the Nespresso Creatista Plus. It’s also dishwasher safe.


There’s no doubt about it: the Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother has excellent value, given its ability to quickly brew a cup of joe. But in order to have the best espresso, however, is to enjoy it with frothing milk on top. The base model doesn’t include the aeroccino to make it happen. On the brightside, there’s several different packages to choose from such as the Nespresso Aeroccino plus milk frothers and additional coffee pods or the machine plus the coffee pods, but minus the aeroccino.

Nespresso Milk Frother Wrap Up

As long as you buy the full package and only use Nespresso pods, you’ll be in caffeine heaven. It’s a bit restricting, but the Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother are affordable on their own, and the pods themselves come in a wide variety of flavors. And with its compact, one button system, making a cup of coffee every single day is a breeze.
