Finally! USB-powered latte foamer


When I first saw this, I thought to myself, “Wow, that is wonderfully stupid.” But then after remembering my days working in an actual office, it doesn’t seem quite as insane. I mean, you’ve got a computer right there in your cube. And, what, you’re going to lug a big espresso machine into the office? No! Make this DIY latte foamer with $4 worth of parts.

You’ll need the following, according to Instructables:

  • Cheap foamer
  • USB cable
  • Pliers (or a sharp knife)
  • Soldering gun
  • Drill

Then it’s basically some snipping, soldering, and drilling. It doesn’t sound like rocket science but, of course, let’s all be careful as we’re putting together our foamers this weekend. Of course, you could just by the “cheap foamer” piece and run it on batteries as it’s intended. That takes care of the extra work and the espresso-machine lugging.
