The Aeroccino4 is more versatile and convenient than its predecessors. With two types of hot foam, hot milk and cold foam, the Aeroccino4 offers a wide choice to prepare more coffee and milk recipes at home in a simple way.

With one single whisk, one can now do all the preparations: pour in the milk and select the desired button to obtain a milk froth for a variety of recipes. The Aeroccino4 is also dishwasher proof to ease cleaning.

According to Nespresso, the Aeroccino4 offers the following key benefits and features:

  • The Aeroccino4 provides the user with two types of hot milk froth (airy or dense) for even more incomparable recipes
  • The Aeroccino4 is able to prepare a cold milk froth and hot milk preparation for your hot chocolate or caffé latte
  • It uses a single whisk for all preparations
  • It is dishwasher proof (below 70°C / 158°F)

Max capacities

  • For hot or cold milk froth: 120 ml (for two Nespresso Cappuccino’s or one Latte Macchiato)
  • For hot milk: 240 ml

Preparation times

  • For hot milk froth:  approximately 80 seconds
  • For cold milk froth: approximately 80 seconds
  • For hot milk:  approximately 150 seconds

Nespresso also provided the following two ideal recipes to try out with the frother:

Milk Tart Coffee

Ingredients

  • 1 Vanilio Grand Cru

  • Place the 20ml of vanilla syrup into the Aeroccino4 milk frother using the spring whisk for your cappuccino.
  • Once milk is done, pour it directly into a glass cappuccino cup on top of your mixture.  Wait a few seconds for your froth and milk to separate and prepare the 40ml espresso Vanilio Grand Cru directly into cup.
  • Sprinkle on some of the crushed Marie biscuits on top of the milk froth and sprinkle with cinnamon for decoration and taste.
