What you need to make frothed milk

It is quite possible to prepare frothed milk using a coffee machine, however, you can only do this if it has a special tube designed to release steam. In addition, you will need a clean milk pitcher and a cappuccino maker. We attach it to the coffee machine tube, which produces steam.

Today on the modern market you can find a wide selection of cappuccino makers of various shapes, sizes, serving methods and the functions they perform. The most popular model of this nozzle for a long time has been and remains the Panarello cappuccino maker.

All cappuccino makers can be divided into two main types:

  • steam – works on the principle of a spray; the principle of a spray;
  • mechanical - operates on the principle of rotation of the beaters.

The pitcher is a container made of metal in which milk is directly frothed. In addition to metal, ceramics, plastic or glass can be used to make this container. The main thing is that the material used has good thermal conductivity and has a neutral chemical composition - otherwise, the taste of the drink you prepare will be far from what you expected.

The instructions for the Delonghi Cappuccino coffee machine include a detailed description of the technical parameters specific to specific models and types of appliances.

Principle of operation

Making coffee in automatic coffee machines requires almost no human intervention. The coffee maker needs to select a program and type of drink. Next, the process occurs in stages:

  • grain crushing;
  • pressing the ground powder into the filter;
  • passing hot water and steam through the filter;
  • collecting milk from the container through special tubes;
  • filling a cup with the finished drink.

The operating principle is slightly different depending on the model and type.

Installation and connection tips

The instructions for the Delonghi carob coffee maker with cappuccino maker will help you install and connect the device while observing safety precautions.

The operation of the device is associated with the generation of heat; it must be placed on a surface where there is at least 3 cm of free space on each side, and at least 15 cm on top. It is not recommended to leave the device near water taps and other sources of water, in rooms where the temperature falls below 0 °C.

Before connecting to the network, you must check that the voltage in the network matches the parameters specified in the manual. The socket must be in good working order, the minimum current is 10 A. If the plug does not fit into the socket, a special adapter must be installed.

What kind of milk should I use for frothing?

To get a real latte or cappuccino, it is recommended to use only high-quality milk, since the thickness of the resulting foam and the time of its formation depend on it. Milk used for churning should:

  • be pasteurized;
  • have a temperature of approximately +3 or + 4 degrees;
  • contain 2.8–3.8% protein; have a fat content of three percent or higher.

The percentage of proteins and fats present in milk is responsible for the thickness and viscousness of the foam obtained from it - the higher it is, the thicker it will be.

Caring for your Delongi coffee machine with cappuccino maker

If you strictly follow the instructions for the Delonghi Cappuccino coffee machine, the device will work properly and serve the user for a long time. An important condition is regular cleaning of the components. Do not use alcohol solutions or detergents with an abrasive texture for this purpose.

Care instructions:

  • The coffee grounds container must be emptied when the corresponding message appears on the display.
  • It is recommended to empty the condensate tray when the indicator goes behind the cup tray.
  • Clean the inside of the machine, the water tank and the funnel for pouring coffee monthly, and the infuser - 2 times a month.
  • Residues from milk in the container should be removed after each use.

Do not wash the device under the tap or immerse it entirely in water. Maintenance is carried out when it is unplugged.

To clean the cappuccino maker in the Delonghi coffee machine, you need to disconnect it from the nut and remove it from the water or steam supply tube. The hinge part must be disassembled, the tube and pin removed. Rinse the components under running water, reassemble in reverse order, reinstall and connect the tube.

The need to clean the cappuccino maker in a Delonghi coffee machine arises regularly.

Cleaning the filter

After preparing 250-300 cups of coffee, it is worth cleaning the filter in the Delonghi Cappuccino coffee machine. It is removed, the inside is cleaned by hand, and washed under hot water. If necessary, a brush can be used. The filter openings must be clean. Contaminants are removed with a sharp object.


The length of time the coffee maker can operate without descaling depends on the hardness of the water. A notification will appear on the coffee machine display. To clean, use a DeLonghi decalcifier; vinegar-based products are not suitable. Regular decalcification helps extend the life of the machine.

To clean, you need to turn on the device and select the descaling program in the menu. Pour the decalcifier solution in the required proportion into a water container and place it under the supply tube. Start the process.

After the procedure, the device must be additionally rinsed with clean water.

Step-by-step instructions for frothing milk

The procedure for frothing milk can be divided into a number of sequential actions:

  • We fill the pitcher with milk, not filling it to the place where its spout begins, about a centimeter.
  • We install the cappuccino maker at a forty-five degree angle relative to the pitcher wall. The tube should be placed so that it “looks” slightly away from the center of the vessel and is located approximately at a centimeter depth.
  • We immerse the free end of the device in milk and set the device to steam generation mode. The vessel itself should be held by the bottom to control the temperature of the whipped mixture.
  • We hold the cappuccino maker, using it to rotate the liquid so that its hissing can be heard.
  • Gradually move the device deeper into the vessel, making sure that the hissing does not stop.
  • As soon as you feel that the bottom of the pitcher has warmed up, you can move on to the next stage of cooking.
  • We immerse the cappuccino maker more deeply. When immersed in depth, the hissing will stop, but the milk should continue to rotate. As a rule, this effect is achieved at approximately a centimeter height from the bottom.
  • We heat the milk with steam until you can safely hold the vessel by the handle - to a temperature of approximately +75 degrees or slightly higher.
  • Stop the steam supply and remove the tube.

In order for the foam in the cappuccino maker to be homogeneous, you should periodically lightly shake the pitcher, tapping it on the table surface.

Cappuccino at home

Don't be upset if you don't have a coffee machine or regular coffee maker with which you can make your own cappuccino.

Anyone can make cappuccino at home and without a special device.

To do this you will need the following ingredients per serving:

  • Finely ground black coffee (1 tsp);
  • Milk (150 ml.);
  • Dark chocolate (1/2 tsp);
  • Sugar (2 tsp);
  • Water (40 ml.).

Read about the difference between granulated instant coffee and freeze-dried coffee here.

We pour the coffee into a coffee pot, fill it with cold water and cook the drink until it is ready, then pour it into a cappuccino container and add sugar to taste. Separately, boil the milk and beat it into foam in a blender or French press.

The final stage: carefully pour the finished milk into the coffee, and use a spoon to transfer the whipped foam into the drink. Sprinkle finely grated chocolate on top.

Based on personal preferences, you can add cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom to the cappuccino, and replace the milk with cream.

By the way, the latter option is more preferable, since thanks to the cream the milk foam will be as thick as possible.

Differences between frothed milk for cappuccino and latte

The main difference between the milk frothed for these coffee drinks is its quantity. To prepare a latte, use 3/5 milk and 1/5 foam. Cappuccino is made with the addition of a third of milk and a third of milk foam, which is much denser in consistency than that used for latte. To obtain such foam, you should hold the cappuccino maker lowered to a depth a little longer and raise the heating temperature to a higher level. In addition, milk for cappuccino should be chosen with a higher percentage of fat content than for latte.

In general, the preparation of any coffee drink with the addition of whipped or plain milk must be approached thoroughly and the result of your labors will definitely please you.
