It is the only milk that froths at 60 deg C
Pre heated milk left out at room temperature
A mixture of milk and water in the frothing jug

When steam is actually coming out of the steam arm
When you have finished steaming
When water is flushed out of the steam arm
When the steam pipe is aimed toward the drip tray
When the tip of the steam pipe is just below surface of milk prior to steaming
When the machine is positioned in front of you and you are standing to one side of the steaming arm.

A Cappuccino made with decaffeinated coffee
A Caffe Latte in a cup with highly “polished” foam
A Lungo with a lot of semi skimmed milk
An Americano with a dash of hot milk
Taste the milk to check it is fresh
Heat the cup with a blast of steam
Fill the water tank to at least half way.
Clean the steam pipe with a cloth and blast of steam.
