How to Steam Milk

Espresso + milk is one of life’s great pairings. Learning to perfect a shot of espresso is one part of the equation, but mastering the art of steaming milk is equally as important when crafting espresso drinks. Like all La Marzocco machines, the Linea Micra boasts powerful steam and a wand that will heat a small pitcher of milk in just a few seconds. At first, this can be a bit surprising—but with a few quick tweaks, some positioning, and practice, steaming on the Linea Micra is as good as it gets.
