WHY USE MILK THERMOMETERS? KNOW WHAT YOUR MILK NEEDS

The two main reasons for using a barista milk frothing thermometer is consistency and safety. Milk reaches its burning point at 72 degrees celsius, which means it is important to serve milk based espresso coffees at just under this temperature to avoid burning the mouths of consumers. Milk changes its properties dramatically after 72 degrees celsius, losing its natural sweetness, which makes milk temperature crucial.

As we know, there is tonnes of alternative milks on the market now, all with different heating needs. By keeping monitoring milk temperature for coffees you can create the creamiest microfoam for your latte art.

A milk thermometer can be used to check the temperature of the hot water at both the group head and hot water tap. Generally, a common water temperature here is 91 degrees which is considered the optimum water temperature for coffee extraction.

They generally come in three styles: analogue with probe, digital with probe and milk jug thermometer stickers. All have their place within the cafe and barista setup.

Most baristas thermometers have a temperature range of 0 - 100 degrees celsius with marking at 60 degrees celsius as an indicator of the milk frothing temperature where you should start cutting your streaming.

Digital coffee thermometers can be used both as a milk thermometer and to check the hot water at both the group head and hot water tap. A digital thermometer will react faster and tend to have a very accurate readings yet are not dishwasher safe. And they do cost a little more and you will need to replace batteries.
