How to create milk foam for a cappuccino using your Dedica Pump Coffee Maker EC680 and EC685


Prepare the espresso coffees
as described in our video ‘How to make an espresso’,
using sufficiently large cups. To use tall glasses,
remove the drip tray and stand the glass on the tray. Press the steam button
and the light flashes; In the meantime, fill a jug
with a capacity of around 400mls with 100mls of milk
for each cappuccino to be prepared. For a denser more even froth,
you must use skimmed or partially skimmed milk
at refrigerator temperature. Make sure the cappuccino maker selection
ring is in the “cappuccino” position. Wait for the light corresponding to the
steam button to come on steadily, indicating that the boiler has reached
the ideal temperature to produce steam. Position an empty container
under the cappuccino maker and open the dial for a few seconds
to eliminate any air left in the circuit,
this is known as purging. Close the dial again. Place the jug containing the milk
under the cappuccino maker. Immerse the cappuccino maker
in the milk container. Never immerse the black ring.
Turn the dial to the steam position. Steam is delivered
from the cappuccino maker, giving the milk
a creamy frothy appearance. To obtain a creamier froth,
immerse the cappuccino maker in the milk and rotate the container
with slow upward movements. When the required temperature
and froth density is reached, interrupt steam delivery by turning the steam dial clockwise. Pour the frothed milk into the cups containing the espresso
coffee prepared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and if desired, sprinkle the froth
with a little cocoa powder. Hints & Tips To prepare more than one cappuccino,
first prepare all the espresso coffees then at the end prepare the frothed milk
for all the cappuccinos. To exit the steam function,
press any button. The one and two cup lights
will flash to indicate that the temperature
is too high to make coffee. You should not deliver steam
for more than 60 seconds. In choosing the size of the jug,
bear in mind that the milk doubles or triples in volume. You are recommended to use semi-skimmed
milk at refrigerator temperature.
