Water Freshness 98% of the liquid in the cup is made of water, as a consequence, the water used in the coffee machine must clearly be fresh, as well as flavourless, odourless and colourless.
Water Hardness The other factor that influences the quality of water is the water hardness (due to the presence of calcium and magnesium mineral). The ideal water hardness is approximately 9 French degrees (or 90 mg/l).
Milk To create high-quality milk froth, make sure the milk is fresh, used straight from the refrigerator at a temperature of approx. 5Â°C. This will ensure to reach the ideal temperature when heat is added to it to create the foam. With LatteCrema System, we recommend using semi-skim milk in order to obtain the best results in terms of foam texture, volume and taste. Don't forget to clean the milk container after each use, with the Automatic Cleaning Function.
