  • Bubbles?

    Hi All,

    Tried searching but couldn't find anything on the topic, if I've missed a thread if someone can kindly point me in the right direction

    Getting [what I believe to be] great microfoam with whole milk/gs3 for steaming, even managing to get some decent art half the time. However after a minute or so the microfoam goes very bubbly especially around the crema, I can't get my head around whats causing it.

    Using cold milk, tried testing the temperature, different brands of milk, couple of different beans + some "older" beans to reduce the amount of crema but no luck so far. Any tips on what I might be doing wrong?

    Coffee tastes great, but it's disheartening (excuse the pun) to see the art turn into a bubbly mess!

    Probably to do with the your coffee, rather than milk. Could be relatively acidic beans or roast depth. Does it taste ok? If so, leave it. If not, maybe grind coarser and up the dose a touch.

      I had the same a while back. And I'm sorry I have no idea what the issue was.I ended up pouring a small amount of milk into the shot and mixing that first, and then finish pouring the textured milk in as per normal. This helped it but didn't fix that actual issue.

      Normal order was resumed after a short while, which bugged me as I didn't find the real reason.
