    double jugging?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    when making two drinks from the same jug, the first is quite textured, the second is quite flat.
    i once heard of a technique "double jugging" i thought it was called, where the top 25% is poured into a second jug, the next 50% is used in a pour, and then the remaining 25%s are recombined to pour the second drink. the idea being that you can produce two lattes (rather than a cap, and a flat white)
    does this technique work? does it have a name? googling for double jugging returns no results [pertaining to coffee]

    with thanks

    hey lisa
    try "splitting jugs" or "splitting milk" and see what that comes up with. im pretty sure thats what most ppl refer to that process as.

    Re: double jugging?

    i find that with splitting foam between jugs it was something that i learned more from with experience and looking at the milk and swirling it around than something learnt from reading .

    the way i do it is with a using a one litre jug i would split the foam to just under the groove of a 600ml jug and use that and then top the 600 ml jug up to the groove again for the second cup

    hope it helps

    Hi, youre on the right track. Look at this link, reply #5 by Luca, starting half-way down. Full details from an experienced barista on how to do it.

    There are also some excellent links to videos in his previous reply on the same thread.

    Hi there,
    splitting the jug is a grate technic to get the right amount of micro-foam in each cup when doing more than one drink, the results are perfect.

    Another technic that I like do use if I dont want to bother with splitting jugs is to:
    -Stretch enough milk for the desired drinks, say for 2 lattes?
    -Swirl the jug to incorporate the milk and to visualize how far its textured
    -Pour 1/3 of the stretched milk into the first drink
    -Swirl the jug again, this stops the micro-foam from settling further
    -Then pour out the second drink
    -Quick swirl, pour and finish of the first drink.
    -Serve one and drink the other ;D
    For a good finish, try and pour them out in quick secessions of each other, both will end up with shiny&creamy tops.mmmmm

    I like using this technic if I want to get the drinks out promptly, however when doing latte art for two, splitting the jug will give you more artistic control on your rosettas and a better finish too. both will enable you to do similar drinks from a single jug of stretched milk.

    sweet,
    Rancho
