Question about Breville Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
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.
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.
