  • An authentic latte is made using 1/3 espresso, 1/3 hot steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk
  • 1. Make espresso as per instructions
  • 2. Fill a deep, metal or ceramic pitcher half full with fresh, cold skim milk.
  • 3. Hold the pitcher by the handle and bring up to the steam jet. Insert the “Perfect Froth” tip just under the surface of the milk. Turn the function knob gradually to (steam). Move the pitcher in a slightly circular motion, and continue to froth the milk.
  • 4. Once the milk begins to increase in volume, lift the pitcher higher so the steam wand is immersed farther into milk. Move the pitcher up and down a couple of times to achieve a nice foam. IMPORTANT: When frothing milk, the volume of milk will double. The top half will be frothed, the bottom half will be milk.
  • 5. After frothing, turn the function knob back to OFF.
  • 6. Fill a cappuccino cup 1/3 full of freshly brewed espresso. Pour in an equal amount of warm milk and spoon frothed milk on top.
  • 7. Dust froth with cocoa powder, fresh grated nutmeg or cinnamon and enjoy a delicious, freshly brewed cappuccino.

Making Cappuccino

Follow the instruction for making Lattes with the following proportions: 2/3 frothed milk and 1/3 espresso.
