    Hi All We are willing but newbies to the coffee business world and we use a Fracino Contempo 2 Group Electronic Dual Fuel machine for our beverages. I know this is a coffee forum, but I'm hoping somebody else might have experienced the same problem that we are having when it comes to a tea...
  2. Milk techniques, troubleshooting & how to's
    Has anyone tried milk from The Estate Dairy? They were ostensibly set up to produce the best possible milk for coffee and focused originally on supplying cafes, but you can now get their milk - both whole and semi-skimmed - online. It seems to be a blend of 80% Jersey and 20% Holstein milk...

    On my caffeo barista TS, the cappuccino function has stopped working since a couple of days ago. When I select the function it spews hot vapor instead of the milk for the cappuccino. I've cleaned the tube, we've dismantled the front to make sure nothing was clogging it up, and nothing, it's...

    Hello all! So, I'm off to Glastonbury on Saturday and my machine is going with me for the first time. It's going to be easiest to take UHT milk to use which I've not tried steaming before. After having a dig around the forum it seems to be entirely plausible, but I haven't got time to try...

    hey, let me just clear up that this isn't a skimmed milk hate post, more a question. Ive worked in the industry for about 6 years in varied roles and sectors. I drink my coffee black unless there has been a terrible mistake or im feeling like treating myself with a whole milk cortado or...

  8. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, hoping someone can help me. I've got a machine that produces little or no milk, the coffee side seems to be fine just no milk. It makes a few noises but that's all. I managed to get into a service menu that had an error log, this showed "boiler steam overheating", not sure if this is what...

    I've not tried it myself, but has anyone poured hot milk over a Hario V60? I've only used water but curious if milk is something to be tried. Obviously nothing wrong with water, just curious.

    Hi, I have just bought a Delonghi scultura ECZ351 coffee machine, up to now it's not been going too bad with limited knowledge of using these machines, i had a tassimo prior. I have 2 different coffees for it at the moment which is starbucks house blend and Illy coffee medium ground. A...

    Hi all, I am looking into buying my first low-range espresso machine, but a big factor for me is the steam wand as I love a good milky coffee. Any recommendations?

    I tend to only drink espresso during the week, but treat myself to the occasional flat white at the weekends, particularly when friends are over. One milk brand that is very popular in many speciality coffee shops in London is the Estate Dairy. It has a really creamy, rich texture and really...

    Is there a minimum amount of milk you can get away with and still get a good microfoam? For a Cortado or Macchiato for example. I am failing to get any foamy milk, just floating froth and I wondered if you need enough milk for the foam to form without the milk overheating. I'm using a La...

    Ordered some Guatemalan decaf from Redber this morning and when I said I drink milky coffee I got 'you'll want a dark roast, definitely not medium'. So I ordered a dark and a medium dark roast to see if I could tell the difference. Maybe I should have ordered a medium to see if this is myth or...

    I was wondering what the ratio of milk to espresso was in a flat white, I weighed mine and it was approx 90g of milk to 30g espresso. so on my reckoning a 3to1 ratio . I thought this was quite high , I may have to take another measurement later tonight . is this the ratio that the rest of...
  17. Rancilio Forum
    OK - just a quick question about the V5 when milk foaming. I usually run two double shots into pre-heated double walled glass espresso cups and leave them on top of the machine whilst it heats up to steam temp. I have a milk temp gauge and smallish metal jug for the milk. When I'm steaming the...

    I've always found Cravendale a very reliable milk. However over the past month or so it's become so thin it's a bit like the proverbial 'knats' I found it disappointing all over the festive season. Time of year does play it's part but I 've never found it as poor to pour as current. I shall...

    So this is probably a stupid question, but can we talk about jugs? Do the size and shape have any bearing on the product they can produce? (in the hands of a novice) For example, I find the standard sage jug a bit on the small side in the hand, but its advertised as 480ml, and although i can...
