Help! New breville bes870 won't foam milk!
Hello! Just brought a bes870 and the milk wand seems to be working, and I'm adding heaps of air yet when you go to pour it it's really flat! If I wanted to do cap it would be impossible! I can't even seem to do a late.. Anyone else have this problem with this machine? Or is this a fault??
Hi! If your machine is new and there's decent steam issuing from the wand you need to: 1) are you using good milk, e.g., whole milk as opposed to skim? 2) technique - sip the wand just under the surface so you hear a "ssssssstttt" noise and the milk swirls in a clockwise direction. There are many videos on texturing milk. YouTube has lots!
may be fault with your machine or technique. Go to 4mins onwards in this vid
they dont seem to have any dramas in frothing and texturing milk, so I doubt there are generic issues with the bes870

Got my bse870 a few days before Christmas. Mine works just as it does in the video.
