  • Latte Lesson please

    Would someone be kind enough to tell me how to make a nice latte, step by step, please?
    Also, I have been going through the forums and found a topic on changing the settings (+10 degrees temp and -.2 wetness). How do you do this please? :-[ Also step by step, please.

    Regards.

    Dippy,

    A Cafe Latte is simply a shot of coffee, that is 25-30ml and steamed milk, usually served in a glass of about 170ml - 220ml. Depending on what you like, you can either have a lot of foam or just a little. I usually serve mine with about a centimetre, give or take, of foam. Of course, if using skim milk, I often stuff up and make it too foamy! LOL!

    Other than that, I am not so sure about what you mean by step by step?? Are you saying youre a complete newbie and dont know how to make a shot of coffee and steam milk or are you just after instruction on how to put a cafe latte together? I ask only to ensure that I cant give you better help or not.

    As to your other question, I dont know what you are talking about? Is it a specific machine you refer to? If so, would you like to tell us what it is? (Id be guessing its a Sunbeam!)

      Those settings refer to the Sunbeam 6910.

        its really not something you can teach by writing a few words. Best bet is to take a lesson.

          Well scoota gal, I am a complete and total novice :-[. But wanting to learn it all yesterday lol.
          I thought you had to add water to make a latte (my fave) but I read somewhere in a forum that you dont. Sooooo, I thought it would be easier to ask everyone for some help. But I suppose it is mostly trial and error. I have spent 2 days going thru a lot of the forums and I am having a ball, getting so much info !!!!
          I have the sunbeam EM6910 and I have managed to change the settings to the ones that I found here, not too bad for a novice. Well, it was quite easy when I actually did it, lol.
          Anyway, enough rambling, I will continue to read everything I can and I am going to do the sunbeam appreciation class (that should help) and I will perfect my latte yet !!!!

          Cheers Lynn.

            Thats all okay! We were all complete newbies once!

            I think that you will be surprised at finding out how you dont add any water to any of the usual drinks on the coffee menu. In fact, even a long black you dont add water! Rather, you add coffee to the water!

            I know, confusing and all that. But your course will go a long way to putting you on the right path, I am sure. In fact, youll be left wanting to know more, I know it! So, keep reading here and keep an eye out for any snob get together as well. Nothing like a bunch of like minded people to help you out!
