Even semi skimmed milk with froth if hot enough. Check the steam temperature, you may need to blow steam through the milk for longer.

Hi, I bought my kitchenaid artisan coffee machine on ebay. I can't get the steaming of the milk right. It froths too much so can't make just a latte or flat white. It looks to me that the nozzle...


there is an art to working a foamer ... hence the "artisan" in the coffee-maker's name. There are several aspects to a good foam:

1. If you have been using regular milk to make your foam, try half-and-half ... the thicker consistency will give you a different result.
2. If you have been jamming the foamer head all the way to the bottom of the milk while you are foaming it, try submerging less of the foamer ... this will cause the steam to have a slightly different effect on the milk. If you have been submerging it only about half way (or not at all) try different depths. If one consistent depth is not right, try swirling it around while you foam the milk.
3. Try a different amount of steam (if your steam release valve is adjustable). Pushing a lot of pressure into the milk will give you a different result than barely turning it on.
4. Are you using a cold container or a warm one to hold the milk you are steaming? If you are still not getting the results you are looking for by playing with the other aspects of your foaming process ... try a different container (it sounds silly, but it can really help).
Before you go out and spend a bunch of money on different replacement parts for your machine, spend a while playing with these aspects of your foaming process. If none of these ideas help, then you should consider replacing pieces. Foaming milk is not as easy as it sounds ... it took me a few months of (once daily) use to really get my technique down so I could make a reliably decent foam. Don't give up! and good luck!

It froth's milk beautifully but won't do soy milk.


We bought a Nespresso Milk Frother in 2010 for $100. The frother is the same one that comes with the Citiz machine but is a stand alone model. It froths soy milk very well. The less soy you put in it, the more froth you get but even if we fill it to the max line we still get a reasonable amount of foam. We use Silk brand soy milk. I have no idea if foaming is impacted by atmospheric pressure but it may be a factor to consider if you are using all the same factors as us but not getting great results. We live at a higher elevation Calgary, Canada in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Frothing


You should try to hold the steam end half a centimeter lower the top surface of the milk and try to have it with a slight angle in the pot with milk and near to side of the milk pot about 1 centimeter. If the steam end goes very near to the top surface of milk and for seconds goes above and then back into milk this can create the bigger bubles foam milk.. So with a very steady hand you can create very nice smooth foam. Also remeber that should stop heating anymore the milk after 72 degrees selcius the point at which you can not leave your hand out on the pot for more one second this point you must stop. After the 72 to 75 degress you could burn the milk protein and any foam already created will desapear just like that.
Try also in youtube "milk frothing" and you find many videos on how to do it.
Good luck.

I just need to know how to make a cappuccino useing my DeLonghi Cafe Sorrento. Thanking you


Cappuccino is a mixture of espresso, a little steamed milk and a little milk foam. The milk/foam ratio is up to you what you enjoy most. Some like a thick layer of foam while others just want foam as a garnish on top. Mix as you please.

Breville Cafe roma milk does not foam


You need practice !

Rules of thumb :
1 - Use COLD MILK, did you ever try to make whipped cream with warm cream ? It's the same.
2 - Use a COLD RECIPIENT to put your milk in.
3 - Foam your milk AT LAST, extract your expresso before, so if you do a not so good foam it doesn't have time to deflate.
4 - If you put any condiment on the foam, it will drop fast, like nutmeg, cocoa or cinamon.
Technique :
a. Put whole milk in a cold stainless steel recipient.
b. Start the machine and let it go for couple of seconds, just to let the first dropplet of water to spat out. When you have a clean and steady jet of steam, it's ready.
c. Swiftly, insert the vapor tube in the milk, if you go too slow, the steam will blow milk everywhere.
d. Go deep in the milk, but don't touch the botttom.
e. Within 5 seconds go toward the surface of the milk carefully, avoiding the big bubbles sound, you are looking for a steady "pcchhhhhh" no grunting, no bubbles, no ear piercing sound. Everytime you loose it, plunge and come back to the surface, eventually you will find the sweet spot.
f. When you are in the sweet spot, keep in mind that the milk surface rise during the process and you have to follow it, so rise slowly, following the path of the foam/milk.
g. If you feel the pot becomming to hot for your finger, you have to stop, milk doesn't like to be heated that much.
h If you succeed you will have a whole pot of foam, the milk wont separate from the foam and when you pour it, it will be like a deep creamy soap foam.

Good luck,

JF

Jura capressa F7 steam milk problem


You should decalcify, when you steam the milk some what gets through to the steam and the build up of these minerals causes the issue

First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.
