Milk Brother: Turn Your Moka Machine Into a Milk Steamer


Fri, Jun 29th, 2012 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

The Milk Brother by Po-chih Lai turns any macchinetta for espresso into a milk-frothing machine, allowing you to enjoy both the coffee and the crema in one go.

MILK BROTHER is used to create hot milk foam via an intermediary middle valve. Hot milk foam generally relies on steam pressure which normally requires a pump, this pot employs an additional area where steam is stored under pressure -- ready to be used for frothing milk. The combination of milk frother and moka pot provides a concise concept for a simple, integrated and lightweight solution which continues in the spirit of the original product -- one which has inspired the public for the past 80 years. This project aims to eliminate any unnecessary tooling, design artefacts and functions. There is no pump machine, hand power, electrical requirement or extraneous function.
