Actually we were quite surprised by the good quality of the foam from 
this little thing.  Dense, creamy, and long lasting.  I really didn't 
expect it to be that good.
We ran across it at a high-end kitchen store doing demos.  Seur 
LeTable in this case.  You guys might want to check similar places in 
your area and see if you can get a demo.

I think we're all in agreement that doing it right (steam wand) 
produces the best foam, but both the Bodum one I mentioned first and 
this Nespresso one turn out something very close to whipped 
cream.  I've seen people do a *lot* worse with a steam wand.

It's kind of like the AeroPress folks claiming that it makes 
Espresso.  Once you admit that it doesn't, you're free to admire the 
quality of the cup it *does* make.
