Subject: How to get silky froth with Bezzera BZ07?
 

I recently purchased a Bezzera BZ07 fully auto.  I make lattes.  I used to have a Silvia and was able to get silkily smooth milk in my frothing.

But all I can ever get with the BZ07 is sudsy milk.  It doesn't seem to have a powerful wand.  The Silvia seems to have had a more powerful wand than the BZ07.  I'm not sure if that is the issue though.

Unlike the Silvia, I'm not waiting some period of time after pulling a shot.  From what I understand, you don't have to wait with the BZ07.

Are there any tips for working with the BZ07 to get non sudsy frothing?

You're right, you don't have to wait for steaming, because the Bezzera BZ07 is an HX machine, i.e. the boiler is already on steaming temperature. I guess your issues are just a matter of getting used to your new machines? How many holes does the tip of your steam wand have?

It has two holes.  I've been trying a number of things to avoid the suds but nothing so far.

I would say you need to change how you froth milk. Two holes wand should be enough to make the silky smooth milk. I've done many latte art with single hole wand, but it took some practices.

If you still think the steaming power is not enough, try to start frothing from the side of the jar. It would help rotate the milk while you are adding the microform into the milk. As long as you feel it is warm enough simply submerge the tip so that it can rotate faster. In my opinion, the texture of milk is heavily depend on how fast you rotate the milk to stretch out evenly. I hope this can help.

Have you read the Milk Frothing Guide yet?
