Tips on milk foam:

Obviously, the best would be to use an espresso machine to create a nice velvety foam. However, if you don’t have an espresso machine the best way to make nice foam at home would be the French press. The issue here is that you’ll get a good quality foam with cold milk rather than hot milk. Hot milk does work in a French press but not nearly as good. It’s fine when you’re making ice beverages, but with hot beverages….you need to make a judgment call. Anyways, refer to my ice caramel macchiato video on how to use the French press
