  • Cafe Con Leche and preventing cheesy wand

    Hello guys, fwi Cafe Con Levhe is a drink that includes scalded milk.....

    Not 150-160f but higher than 160f......

    Anyways, how do you guys prevent cheesy wands.....

    Nah.... don't worry. Just let it build up til you can pare it off with a knife.

    Serve with olives on toothpicks.

      Wipe the wand down with a damp cloth immediately after every use and open the steam valve for a couple of seconds to expel any milk remnants.

          Seen a few in cafe's over the years that look to be competing for the Aussie fromagerie award.

            Was going to offer something along these lines, however, I'm not that sort of person.

              Not where i have had it !...just another variety of Latte.
              but like many coffee versions , it varies depending on the local culture.

              Odd for a "coffeepro" to be asking how to clean a steam wand ?

                Umm guys,

                I purge then steam the milk and i wipe the wand and purge it again as usual

                but thats for steaming now its for scalding with all those worrying curds so i thought maybe some precautions here should be done.....

                Spaniards live their milk hot like hotter than 160f

                (Edit: *live* -> love)

                      Me thinks Ray may well be playing games.
