Frothing tips
• Cold milk is the easiest to froth. Luke warm milk may be used, however,
there will be about half the amount of froth produced.
• Frothing is easier with smaller quantities of milk – usually no more than
½ cup.
• Skim milk is easiest to froth, although whole milk will provide the best taste.
• When frothing whole milk, frothing may take longer; for easier frothing, use
smaller quantities.
Coffee drinks
• A variety of delicious coffee drinks can be made using frothed milk by
combining with espresso.
• Traditionally, cappuccino is ⅓ espresso, ⅓ steamed milk and ⅓ foam.
• A café latte is cappuccino with two to three times as much frothed milk.
• To make café mocha, add 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup to the milk and froth
or simply add the chocolate syrup to the coffee.
• Regular brewed coffee may also be used in place of espresso, if desired.
• Sprinkle shaved chocolate, ground cinnamon, nutmeg or cocoa powder on
top of cappuccino.
• Serve cinnamon sticks as stirrers to add a new flavor.
