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.
