IMPORTANT FACTORS WHEN BUYING A MILK JUGA milk frothing jug should be easy to clean and dishwasher safe, so that you have as little cleaning effort as possible. Once you've heated your chosen milk in the milk jug and frothed it using a steam lance, you can get started right away and put your latte art and general barista skills to the test, for example by creating different designs. Most barista milk jugs for frothing milk are made of stainless steel, as this material is strong, durable and easy to clean. Barista milk jugs made of stainless steel may also be put in the dishwasher for cleaning. As for the shape, stainless steel milk jugs should be round and slightly bulbous with a pointed spout. This is so that the milk can circulate well inside the jug during frothing and thus heat up evenly. For optimal handling, the milk jugs are equipped with a sturdy handle. The color or even a fancy pattern on the milk jug is just a matter of taste and can give your kitchen an individual touch. Discover the Aromatico range of beautiful Motta milk jugs, as well as the jugs of the brands Barista Space and Rhinowares. Whether fancy colorful with different patterns or rather simple and elegant monochrome or stainless steel color, there is a suitable barista milk jug for every taste!
THE FILLING VOLUME IS CRUCIAL
Real baristas usually have several stainless steel milk jugs in different sizes, with the most common size having a capacity of 350 ml. The 350 ml size of a milk frothing jug is easily enough to prepare one cappuccino or two espressi macchiato. For those who want to prepare smaller or larger quantities of milk foam at once, Aromatico also offers barista milk jugs with a capacity of 90, 590 or 950 ml. Thus, of course, there is also the possibility of using a larger amount of milk and prepare more milk foam at once! In particular, the coffee accessories manufacturers Motta and Barista Space offer a wide range of different jugs for all tastes in the Aromatico range. With a beautiful milk jug, pouring the milk foam is much more fun!
Aromatico tip: For best milk frothing results and even latte art, you should use a cow's milk with a fat content of 3.5% for frothing. Also, place the milk jug in the refrigerator before use so that the frothing process lasts longer and the milk does not heat up too quickly. One rule is to grasp the milk jug with your left hand from the bottom and froth the milk until it gets too hot for your left hand. Feel free to check out our tutorial for the perfect milk froth.
You may not get the perfect milk foam on the first try, but with a little practice on the steam lance and the right barista milk jug, you'll soon get the hang of it and surprise your coffee guests with great latte art.
