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.

Here is the owner's manual. Also, by filling the filter with espresso grounds and using water, you are making espresso. It only becomes cappuccino by adding milk.

My nespresso Larissa only drips a small amount when I press the large cup button?

After starting the machine press all 4 lit buttons on the top of the machine simultaneously for a few seconds. That will reset the volumes to factory settings. Decalcify your machine according to the manual provided with the decalcifying kit and the special nozzle for the milk steamer.

If if that does not work fill the water tank and the (clean) milk frother container with the 50/50 decalcifying solution + water and install as usual for making cappuccino (without a coffee capsule). Turn on machine and when the buttons light up press the large cappuccino button. Instead of cappucino you will get hopefully any of the residue from the entire system flushed out. Repeat until you used up the decalcifying solution in both containers. Discard and rinse a couple of times with clear water in both containers. Good luck - worked for my machine.

Delonghi problems

Try filling both water and the milk container with the correct decalcifying solution - just slit the 500 ml that results from the 1:1 mixture and - without the coffee capsule - press the cappucino button. Instead of cappucino you will get the decalcifying solution running through the entire system including the connector for the milk container (unlike the recommended decalcification method where you use the extra nozzle). Good luck - worked for my machine which only produced steam but no milkfoam...

My mukka is shooting steam out of the small valve/washer thing on the bottom pot part. As it gets hots the valve pops up (but not with gusto like it used to do) and then I get a little coffee mixed in with...

I had the same problem and saw this solution in another bialetti mukka problem report, which made sense: "the safety valve on the lower boiler chamber is there to release pressue in case too much prssure builds up in the pot when brewing. If youy have an 11 mm wrench you can take it out and clean it by pulling on the outsidepart, there is a little knob that may be grabbed by a tweezer, gently pull it out, it is spring tensioned, and run water in the opposite end, Chances are some coffee grounds particles got in it and it is not seating good. after cleaning put a few drops of olive oil in it , the inside part. Should seal better and still funtion as a safety valve. Or you can leave it in place in the pot and just pull on the outside , flush with water and then put a few drops of olive oil in it. While you are at it, put olive oul on the threads, olive oil film and the the rubber seal and add a little to the rubber button on the top valve."

I cannot unscrew the top of the Mukka Express machine from the bottom!

If the bottom is screwed too tight on the top, you could try to warm the with hot water and cool the bottom with cold. This could help to expand the top and make it easier to unscrew.

Lost the measuring cup! Does anyone know how much

There is a line inside the water compartment, look for the rectangles that go from the bottom up in the walls, there is a line above them... that is the level for gas stoves, for electric ones just put a little more.

I have an Impressa Z5 and it won't **** milk up the tube as either part of the cappucino program or the stand alone milk program. I've checked and nothing in the nozzle is blocked and the plastic pipe...

There are three possible causes to milk not frothing: 1. The frothing tap is blocked: to unblock either use the cappuccino cleaner from Jura, or in 400ml of luke warm water dissolve a teaspoon of vinegar or 1/2 teaspoon of bicarb and run this liquid through the frother until completely finished (or run the cleaning program). The run about 600-800ml of water through the system. While passing the liquid through let the tap rest at froth, and milk setting for 5 seconds at a time. Repeat if necessary. To prevent this in future clean frother after 5 minute of none use. 2. The breathing nozzle is blocked, you can use the Jura Maintenance guide to see how to disassemble and clean and reassemble, but most Juras come with a spare, so replace it. 3. The machine needs to be descaled, since there is lime or scale in it.

it did that to me too, so I reduced the amount of milk to the indicated level inside. No more mess after that.
