One of the best justifications for paying top dollar for quality coffee at a cafe is the love, care, and finesse baristas use when pouring us a hot cup of perfection. They have high-quality tools to perfect their craft and spend hours learning how to make your favorite pour.
If you are a coffee enthusiast and are ready to start making your own gourmet coffee at home you probably already have an electronic frother to make fancy lattes and iced coffees.
But most whisks and frothers just can’t reach the consistent levels of microfoam that high-end coffee shops deliver. There is a fine window where milk or plant-based alternatives reach that perfect foamy texture that makes instagramable pours that most frothers just can’t reach. There needs to be a golden ratio of temperature, air, and whisking.
The coffee nerds at NanoFoamer PRO have created the perfect microfoam maker to get your milk or plant-based alternative to the perfect consistency. In this review, we will see if this is something coffee lovers will invest in or just a glorified whisk.
Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this is a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, combining several features into one or introducing a new feature to an old product is also considered an innovation.
If you make coffee at home you probably already have an electric whisk. You also probably turn it on for a few seconds and let that baby froth until you get something close to what you want. Where the NanoFoamer PRO shines is doing the frothing for you all at the touch of a button.
It has a super intuitive design, from specific attachments for different foam and milk types, and 5 different modes for different consistency and drink sizes. You get consistent results thanks to their flow control attachment with measuring lines and the 5 modes, and it always heats up your milk just the way you like it.
You can also pour your perfected microfoam right into your coffee or drink. The NanoFoamer PRO really has everything in one.
There is a fine science in how much aeration occurs during the foaming process and how those large foam bubbles have to be broken into fine microfoam to deliver that airy consistency you love. The NanoFoamer PRO is fine-tuned to do one thing and do it well, foam your milk or milk alternative.
It isn’t the first of its kind, but we have yet to see something with this much precision and attention to detail.
How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.

The NanoFoamer PRO is one of the few milk frothers that actually heat your milk while the competition only can foam milk that is already hot. The NanoFoamer PRO begins heating at the end of the foaming process and slowly gets hotter over a minute in case you want a hotter drink, while you are in a rush with the other frothers to pour your hot milk in your drink before it gets too cold after being aerated.
The magnetic flow control attachment not only allows for different levels of foaming but also provides exact measurements while pouring your milk beforehand, really saving you cleanup time.
The customization of how frothy you want your milk is unparalleled. While the SMEG has 6 options, the NanoFoamer PRO has two flow control attachments that work for milk and milk alternatives, as well as the amount of foam desired. There is the real science behind NanoFoamer PRO’s consistency.
For most people who are not very enthusiastic about coffee and are just happy to use a regular frother whisk, this level of frothing and micro foaming will not be interesting to them. This review is for those coffee aficionados who want their pour perfect every time.
The only thing you can buy with this level of precision is a coffee shop-grade foamer that will set you back thousands of dollars.
How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.
Subminimal is the team behind the NanoFoamer PRO, and they specialize in one thing – coffee products. They also have a smaller frother, a thermometer as well as a pouring jug for sale on their website that all go into one bundle.
This is their second campaign with their first one being the NanoFoamer, microfoam milk in 20 seconds. It was a success and the comments are overall positive with multiple updates on production and shipping.
These people must really love their coffee. The founder, Dominic, gives an in-depth demonstration of how to best use the NanoFoamer PRO and finishes off with a beautiful pour.
They have delivered once before and I suspect that the finely crafted NanoFoamer Pro will be a hit.
How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Do they engage with their backers? Crowdfunding is all about community, sharing information, and building meaningful relationships with the people who fund your project.
Looking at the comment section of the campaign, we see many coffee lovers and returning backers praise this new device. All technical questions are answered and there is some feedback about some features that would have been nice.
While there are no visible updates, we see no reason to believe that the team isn’t active on the campaign.
What really set this campaign apart for me was the free Latte Art Master Class, taught by two-time champion Lance Hedrick. Not only are you getting the tools to make a beautiful pour, but also getting taught by a professional how to do it.
The NanoFoamer PRO is what enthusiasm is all about, bringing more attention to finer details for those who want to perfect their craft. Life is much better when we can make our own high quality micro foam that is perfectly aerated and heated.
