Tips for frothy cappuccino creaminess

TrishUntrapped | Aug 18, 2012 04:42 AM

My husband gave me an espresso/cappuccino maker. I don't drink coffee regularly, but will indulge on an occasional espresso or cappuccino. He on the other hand loves coffee and uses a French Press every morning for his own brew. So he's having fun with the new machine.

The problem is he hasn't mastered the art of steaming the milk. The froth is coming out too thin. He looked at a website Talk About Coffee:

He knows he needs to make some adjusments, like not frothing too much milk at a time. But he's not sure what else to do. But he is having fun playing with his... I mean my.... new toy.

Comments on Talk About Coffee are across the board as to what type of milk to use.... whole, skim, 2 %.... all have their proponents. Does that matter?

Do you have any tips for frothy cappuccino creaminess?
