Tips for making a perfect ELLA cappuccino mélange to your taste…

EXTRA SWEET – Add sugar or sweetener to your cup first before introducing Ella
EXTRA FROTH – Shake vigorously up and down (not sideways) to produce a ‘finer’  textured froth
EXTRA HOT – Add extra boiling water or after breaking seal, you can preheat Ella in microwave
EXTRA COLD – Add ice blocks or crushed ice (in place of boiling water). Add sugar or sweetener to taste
ELLA AT ALTITUDE – Add a little extra boiling water at altitude, to compensate for a lower boiling temperature. (Great advice if you live in Johannesburg, Mexico City, Tibet or flying on a plane.)


An extraordinary journey… Meet Neil the adventurer, come inventor.

The spirited inventor of the Ella cappuccino mélange is a passionate, yet wild adventurer.

Neil leads an adrenaline-filled life; his adventures take him across the globe from flying missions into the African Savanna, to climbing the highest mountains, rafting wild rivers through towering gorges, to HALO jumping out of aeroplanes at 30 000 ft. While Neil is an adventurer at heart, he also enjoys being entertained at some of the world’s finest establishments, sometimes with presidents, philanthropists or fellow adventurers and good friends.

Every day might be different for Neil, but one thing stays the same: he starts each day and wraps up every evening with a cappuccino of the finest quality.

Neil’s adventures, though, often take him far away from the conveniences of modern life. One night while lying under the stars, Neil was determined to invent a cappuccino of premium quality that could be enjoyed wherever his travels and adventures took him. And so the story of Ella commenced.

Three years on and many hurdles later, Neil’s vision of creating a premium cappuccino mélange, one that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, became a reality. It was of prime importance to Neil that the invention is as environmentally friendly as possible and as a result of this the cappuccino capsule, lid and frothing device are fully recyclable. Today he never has to adventure alone; he always has the perfect partner with him.
