    Steaming milk


    I've been in the coffee business for about a year now.... I went to CoffeeFest in Seattle, and watching the Latte Art Competition, was amazed at how quietly they steamed their milk?? What's the secret to doing that?? We are getting ready to make some changes to the way we've been pulling shots, etc, and are going to be retraining our employees, and that's one thing I'd like to be able to pass on to them....

    Thanks for your help!! You all are GREAT in getting the information out there to those of us that are fairly new to the business.

    This is not very helpful sorry, but one of our ads is " If you walk into a cafe and the espresso machine is making a screaming noise...order a tea"

    When you begin to steam the milk you need to make a little foam by mixing air into the milk. The foam dampens the noise. You don't just want hot want to add texture. Bring the steam wand just to the top of the milk until you hear a slight spitting noise. Get the milk moving in a whirlpool motion then lower the steam tip below the surface of the milk. If you are getting big bubbles lower the should end up with silky textured milk.
