of the appliance, e.g. a trim, it will condense
and produce water droplets. This is quite
normal and not caused by a fault with the
machine. To prevent discolouration, regularly
wipe away condensation from surfaces.
This is a normal espresso coffee with steam-heated
milk that gives the coffee a milder flavour and a
rich, frothy topping. Serve in a large cup.
Pour cold milk into a tall jug and heat it using the
steam spout if your machine has one. Add only the
froth to the espresso coffee, to do this either tilt the
jug slightly rocking it backwards and forwards
while you pour or use a spoon to scoop off the
