The Koffee Kosmo Method, to Creating Great Microfoam

Great & easy Method for creating great micro-foam

This micro-foam method is repeatable
It is Particularly suited for machines with ample available steam with 2 to 4 steam hole tips

Stretching milk with a 2 or 4 hole steam tip  

There is a technique to using a 2 or 4 hole steam tip  
So please follow these easy steps  

  • Purge water from steam wand  
  • Use a loose hand not stiff  
  • At first use 450 ml jug and fill with cold milk to just under the lower part of pour spout  
  • Place wand just under milk in the middle of jug at 90 deg (no angle) and only give it air in the first second no more and then just keep wand under the surface
  • Important - turn on steam knob to "full steam strength”  
  • Allow steam to do the work and when milk starts to foam keep wand at 90 deg but move jug to one side until the steam wand hits the side of jug  
  • This all happens in about 10 to 15seconds and before you know it you have micro-foam  
This easy method is for high steam power machines with multiple steam holes in the wand 

However good feedback of great results has been received from users of smaller espresso machines

When you get the hang of it you can progress to larger milk jugs  

Once mastered small changes can be made to suit your machine

Happy Micro-foaming

The beauty of it all is he did it with one hand and filmed with the other
