aeralab is the award-winning intelligent milk steamer for world-champ quality milk foam


BARCELONA, Spain – aeralab from Iberital is the only milk foam lab that automatically recognises any milk you’re pouring: from dairy to plant-based milks, even drinking chocolate, juices, etc.. With one glimpse at the pitcher content, aeralab instantly adapts its foaming process to the type of milk or liquid to froth them into the best possible foam.

The promise is simple: you fill the pitcher with any milk. aeralab foams it up to perfection. Done with liters of milk being spilled, in trying to get it right.

Even skilled baristas and barkeepers often struggle with the less-than-average milk foams produced by their steamer or coffee machine. What’s more, changing consumer preferences bring in more complexity. From dairy milks to the avalanche of new plant-based milks: it doesn’t make perfect milk foam easier.

aeralab: From barista to baristas

aeralab is the brainchild of a World Latte Art Champion. Since all milks are different, every milk requires different handling when steaming into foam: different temperature, pressure, steam time, etc. Through liquid recognition and smart logarithms, aēralab works like the brain of a World Champ in Latte Art, automatically turning every milk into a exquisitely creamy micro-foam.

aeralab complements the skills of each staff member and is the care-free solution to prepare delicious, superior and consistent quality foam from all milks. So you can fully focus on the coffee and your guests.

Stop wasting milk

aeralab has been designed and developed for maximum flexibility. From small, individual portions of milk to big serves of 500 ml and more, aēralab steams them into perfect micro-foam, regardless of the skills of who’s behind the bar and the milk you prefer to work with.

Works completely independent – bye-bye connections to coffee machines or boilers

Where traditional milk steamers still need a connection to the boiler of the coffee machine and are dependent on coffee machine brand and type, aeralab operates completely stand-alone and comes plug & play. With its integrated boiler and steam valves, you can start serving perfection from minute one. No complexity. No connections needed (except for water and power). This also allows you to place aēralab in the preferred spot for your workflow. And to consider a cheaper coffee machine without manual steamer

Premiering nano-bubble foam

aeralab uses nano-technology and produces the finest and most stable foam you could imagine. Its ALAL® technology combines calibrated heat and steam through hi-end steam valves to produce a next gen foam from any milk or juice.

Faster than a world champ

aeralab claims to beat any top barista or latte artist, not only in the quality and taste of the milk foam, yet also in speed. It only takes aeralab 26 sec to foam a 250 ml milk pitcher to perfection – which is 15-30% faster than the average steamer. That’s 15-30% more valuable time to spend on great customer service.

Quieter than any coffee steamer

We all love the sound of the coffee shop. But when frothing up milk can sometimes be a source of nuisance and noise for your customers, count on aēralab to work in silence: it only produces 23dB, which sounds like a whisper compared to the 76dB produced by any regular coffee steamer.

aeralab is smartly designed around you & your team’s needs

aeralab is designed to be a compact and humbly present team member, matching every workspace and complementing the talent of your team.

From extra small to extra-large serves

aeralab is literally designed around your key instrument: the pitcher. Yet even the pitcher has been re-invented to yield better milk foam. With its double cone-shape, the pitcher allows for perfect steaming up of small, individual serves of 100 ml to big 250 ml. So no more wasting of milk, yet preparing only the quantity you need. Dosage markings inside the pitcher help you to pour the right quantity of milk.

An intuitive interface to make complexity simple

aeralab is here to unburden you. In full automatic mode, it functions autonomously, and just informs you about its status. In the interactive mode, the interface allows you to customise or personalise your recipes as easy as one-two-three.

Materials to last and to respect our planet

The housing of aēralab is made to last and to do something back for our planet. Front and side panels are made of long-lasting stainless steel – enabling perfect cleaning and maintenance.
