    Why your cappuccino could be looking more like a flat white over summer

    We hear a similar mantra every year, guess we have to keep chanting it to newcomers to espresso and milk, it's seasonal, your machine has not been invaded by no froth fairies, things will return to normal in a few months.

    "The hot weather has created headaches for some dairy farmers and milk processors, affecting the structure of milk froth.
    Tiffany Weyman, Ross Hopper, Brian Tessman, Sean McGowan and Prof Bhesh Bhandari discuss milk froth.

    At Maleny Dairies' milk bar, barista Tiffany Weyman has noticed the quality drop in the past couple of weeks.

    We've lost a lot of texture in the milk, so we're not getting as much froth out of it at the moment as we would like to," she said.

    The heat gets to the girls [cows] a fair bit and it affects the different type of milk they give us."



    A link and explanation below.

    Iím terrible at milk texturing ( well compared to the better half) so I love this time of year. It makes me shift the blame to the cows.

    Been having milk problems for a fortnight with my usual milk. Figured it must be that time of year again. The Wife mentioned the above mentioned article which addresses the issue.
    Miss my microfoam and that special texture you get when the milk is performing at optimum.

    I have been known to add a little bit of cream to the milk to improve the texturing at this time of the year

    Wonder if a teaspoon of powdered milk help to add the protein and fat thatís missing in the summer milk?
