Automatic milk heating and frothing carafes designed by De’Longhi will heat the milk to a temperature that optimally preserves the flavour and aroma of the milk and therefore the entire coffee drink. When milk is over-heated it degrades the “fresh” properties of the natural fats and proteins. This results in a UHT-milk flavour and aroma that is considered undesirable when fresh milk is used.
The milk heating and frothing is created by accurately channelling steam from the machine and air being mixed with refrigerated (4-5°C) milk. As coffee is delivered at a higher temperature to the frothed milk you can change the temperature of your coffee in the following manner:
- Increase the coffee temperature in the menu setting (see your instruction manual)
- Increase the amount of coffee delivered to your cup and reduce the amount of milk (see programming your milk drink in your instructions)
Pre-heating your coffee cup also limits your coffee drink dropping in temperature.
