Espro has designed their pitcher in a way that the milk swirls around in a perfect circle. The bottom of the pitcher is raised. This allows the milk to create a vortex when the steam wand is forcing air into the milk. 

There are fill lines on the inside of the pitcher so you can replicate the volume of milk you need every time you make your latte at home.

I’ve had the Espro milk steaming pitcher for about 7 years now. My husband gave it to me for Christmas after I got my Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine. I wasn’t very seasoned at making espresso or frothing milk when he got it for me. I basically just wrote off latte art for years. But after perfecting my espresso game and milk steaming I decided to give latte art another try. I love the latte art I’ve created so far!
