• Clean the frothing arm and nozzle immediately after
use. See the "Care and cleaning" section.
• Lower fat milks are generally easier to froth. Skim milk
can be tricky because it froths very easily, with a tendency
to form large bubbles and dry peaks that mar its texture.

Preparing cappuccino

To prepare cappuccino, froth and steam the milk before
brewing the espresso. This allows the froth to jell slightly
and fully separate from the milk. Once the milk is prepared,
brew one cup (30 ml) of espresso into a cappuccino cup,

Dispensing hot water

Hot water can also be dispensed from the frothing arm. This
provides a convenient way to make Americanos, tea, or hot
chocolate. Filling a demitasse with hot water is also a great
way to warm it before brewing espresso.
NotE: Always dispense hot water into an empty container –
dispensing into a cup or jug containing other ingredients may
cause splattering.
1. Press the "
" button to turn the Espresso Machine on.
2. Wait until the Espresso Machine has reached operating
temperature; this will take about 6 minutes. When the
frothing boiler temperature gauge needle climbs into the
" zone, the Espresso Machine is ready to dispense
hot water.
3. With the frothing arm pointed into an empty cup, open the
" dial by turning it slowly counterclockwise. Then press

Keeping the Artisan Espresso Machine clean is vital to brewing the best espresso possible. Stale coffee oils on the filter holder,
filter baskets, and shower screen will ruin the flavor of the most expertly prepared coffee, and any milk left on the frothing arm
should be removed.

Ultimately, the choice of milk is a matter of experimentation
and taste. The most important factors in producing a superior
froth are experience and good refrigeration: the colder the
milk you use, the better.
then pour the frothed and steamed milk into the cup with
a gentle shaking motion. For a show-stopping flourish, top
your cappuccino with chocolate shavings.
