Posted Sun Apr 8, 2012, 9:09am Subject: Re: Gaggia Classic to Quick Mil Vetrano - Now I Can't get Microfoam
So for kicks I removed the toothpick from one of the 2 holes on the Vetrano. I will state fact, not opinion, that it is impossible to produce microfoam with both holes exposed. It just blows a stupidly redicilous amount of steam into the milk and makes a huge mess! And this happens no matter where / how you place the tip. Kind of like trying to fill an 8oz glass of water from a firehose cranked to the max. I am now comvinced this is impossible, not my poor technique.
Any other Vetrano owners have the same experience (not other HX owners)?
The only way I can even get close to producing microfoam is with one hole clogged.
Obviously I am not a Vetrano owner, so I'll no longer comment on producing microfoam, other than to point out the obvious: seen any other threads from Vetrano owners about the difficult in making microfoam?
That said, there are several posts in multiple threads about people who use the toothpick-in-the-hole technique.
