I have an espresso without a steam wand and am trying to figure out how to aerate milk for a latte. I tried one of the handheld frothers, but it just makes bubbles and foam (what would be in a cappuccino). I need the microfoam and aeration you find in a latte. Is this possible?

Yes you can do it with a frothing wand.  You need good batteries and good technique.

Go to YouTube and search for 'cappuccinable'

This had been discussed many times before.
