Having recently purchased a beautiful Rancilio Silvia espresso machine, I’ve started getting into espresso in a big way.
One of the biggest things i’m trying to master is the art of milk frothing, and how to create latte art.
For anyone else wanting to get into this pursuit, i will say look no further than the CoffeeGeek milk frothing guide.
It’s an excellent resource that covers the main points of steaming and frothing milk, as well as a bit of the science of milk, and what chemical reactions are involved in getting that velvety smooth microfoam that makes espresso taste so good.
It also covers how to use various grades of espresso machines (basic home machines to full commerical machines) in order to get the desired result.
Now if only i can put some of it into practice.
