Which milk jug?

Which milk jug will help me with latte art and free pouring is a common question we get asked, and realistically as much as the correct jug can help, a lot does come down to the barista, experience and choice of milk. Firstly it is important to choose the correct jug size for the amount of milk based coffees being produced taking into account cup size. it is also important to remember it is easier to free pour from smaller jugs, generally 400ml in size, so if you need to do larger volumes of milk you may use a larger jug and then split the milk into smaller jugs for pouring. Also note, if using a domestic machine it is not recommended to go over 600ml is size as the steam capacity of the machine will be limited. This is generally not too much of an issue in domestic machines as porcelain latte cups are generally 180-220ml so a 600ml jug will pour two lattes easily... Now that the correct jug is choosen, wall thickness may be a consideration, with jugs with thicker stainless steel generally allowing the barista slightly more time to stretch the milk as the jug will absorb some of the temperature as the milk is heating up... Once wall thickness is determined, you may consider using a teflon coated jug to allow for less friction between the jug and milk when stretching the milk. Finally, the spout, and this is a topic of many forum debates... Borrow and pointy for wide and rolled... Ultimately it all becomes a matter of personal preference!
