Perfect milk foam

I just love a good cappuccino. It’s quite difficult to make one: you need a good coffee, milk foam and technique. Today I will focus on how to make the perfect milk foam.

First of all, you’ll need a milk frother, which is something cheap (under $/€ 10).

Milk frother
Then you should take cold milk from the refrigerator and pour it inside a cup or a jug. You don’t need much milk, because it “grows” quite well.

Stick the milk frother inside the jug and turn it on for a while.

It should start as this


And end up like this


Are you following me? Quite simple, hein? Well, now you need to put it in the microwave. Heat it using full power for a minute (or so).

It will become thicker:

Et voilà! There you have it. Perfect foam.

You can then use it to create your “perfect” cappucino.
