    No problem
    The KK microfoam method is easy to learn and use, and produces great results ( see post 1 page 1 )
    At home I use no fat milk and still achieving perfect results
    Give it a go with “No Hands “ and post back your results and impressions

    Thanks for the write up. I have recently purchased a Boema A1 single group, which has the old turbo wand.
    After following your advice, I had some nice microfoam to play with.

    Cheers!

    Just wanted to drop in and say; I had a lot of problems getting the milk textured correctly after upgrading from a Breville Infuser to an Expobar Office Control. My machine came with a 3 hole tip which I then swapped to a 1 hole tip. Even then, the ol' "vortex / 3 oclock position" technique just never worked, ending up with soap suds milk every single time. So frustrating and disappointed.

    Until I found this thread.

    Now I'm back to texturing milk *almost* like a pro even with a 300ml jug thanks to this technique

    Made a short video for the missus awhile back : https://photos.app.goo.gl/Ej22AeSU1xhByrBeA (tricky to vid + steam at the same time)

    Someone mentioned this in this thread, I start with the wand/tip almost 90 degrees from the middle, close to the surface. Steam goes off , air gets sucked in. Once milk starts to get warm, plunge wand in by pushing it to the side.

    Perfect milk every single time.

    Thank you.

    The issue is that i'm still getting really stiff foam after steaming. Should i just cut down on the aeration phase? Thank you!

    I would say yes - to much aeration will result in stiffer foam

    So experiment with no aeration at first and add a little at a time on subsequent coffees till you get the right mix for your machines sweet zone

    Another trick is
    You can also add a little more milk in the jug

    Thanks KK for the original post and others for all the follow up info. So useful.

    I'd like to suggest that there could be a section/heading/link somewhere for beginners articles. Eg on frothing/setting grind/extraction etc. There is so much good info on CS but you can spend days looking for the basics.

    I have just seen a video of a micro foam steamer by La Marzocco

    Is it me that has noticed that this is a very close copy of the method I developed and posted about back in 2008
    They say copying is the greatest form of flattery
