Curious if anyone has recommendations for a milk frother/steamer to accompany a manual machine like a Rok GC or a Cafelat Robot on the occasions I'm really craving a milk drink?

Bellman stovetop? Breville milk cafe? Something else entirely?

We love our Breville. Two frothing discs for different textures. Use it on road trips.

Have you used it with milk alternatives as well?

On road trips I'm using a French Press style frother by Ninja. At home I use a La Pavoni just for the frothing because it's fun to have on the counter (but they seem to be harder and harder to come by at a reasonable price!)

That would be fun, but would break the budget a bit ;)

One of these cheap steam espresso machines with the black panariello thingy pulled off of the steam wand. I used to use one like this daily with an EspressoForge at work. Used for the steaming only. Set it to steam into an empty mug and by the time the espresso was ready, it was hissing at full steam. Also got one for my son when I gave him a Robot.

Sorry Michael no I haven't. But let me ask the kids. They have it now as the steamer on their machine broke. I'll post back if I hear anything.

Bellman steamer works well.

Kids say almond milk didn't foam.
