Encapsulated coffee machines have never been hotter, much like the beverages they dispense, and now to make things easier, Nespresso is connecting its Aeroccino milk frother for a more seamless cappuccino experience.

Last year’s Nespresso U managed to grab a bunch of new customers thanks to an entry-level cost and small size, and this year Nespresso is hoping to jump on everyone else who likes a simple cup of joe with an updated unit that connects the frothing unit.

Rather than exist as a separate component, the UMilk’s Aeroccino is now connected with the U, essentially bringing the plug ports down and warming up the milk for your coffee extraction.

Just like the previous U model, the body of the UMilk is partially assembled from recycled materials, and features three lengths of coffee to choose from: short (ristretto), medium (espresso), and long (lungo).

We should be getting a review unit in shortly to see what has changed, but if you’re keen to see it before we get it, the Nespresso UMilk will be hitting stores this month for $299.
