  • Page 22: Milk Frothing

    Milk frothing The steam can be used for texturing/ frothing milk or for heating liquids. As the temperature for generating steam must be higher than for making coffee, the espresso machine is equipped with an additional steam mode. Important: There is risk of scalding when the steam nozzle is in use.

    Milk frothing (continued) • Swing the steam nozzle out to the side of the machine and hold the jug under the steam nozzle so that the nozzle opening is completely immersed in the milk. Turn the ‘steam/hot water’ switch up to activate the steam and commence frothing the milk.
