How To Steam Milk For Latte
Steaming and frothing milk for latte art, cappuccinos and many other milk-based espresso drinks is achieved in two key stages.
Aerating is the first of these stages. Aerating (also known as "stretching") is the process of adding air to milk. This increases the volume of the milk and creates the micro-foam used to make latte art or cappuccino froth.
The second stage is emulsification, also known as 'texturing.' This micro-foam is emulsified to produce a smoother, richer, and thicker end product.
The time you spend aerating your milk is determined by the type of drink you're making.

- Purge group head
- Dose coffee into the portafilter
