milk steaming problem

I give up for the milk ! BTW I made one much closer to ones on videos today after doing what you said exactly , its brighter and snaller foam ! The milk was good but once i started heating it got bubbles !that made Me think its not machine its me! But I don't know what's problem with me ;) but about the grinder thing I will buy it if you say its good ;) + my father said I'm 100% sure the coffee is 14days old but its closed and it won't go bad !

:o i got a blade one which is horrible, some are so big and some are so small !

btw i saw the Delonghi Burr grinder, is that good?:O it has an low and awesome price :)

i will also ask the vendor for how old the coffee is, and order a cappuccino using same coffee just with he's machine and ask him to show me the crema !

milk steaming problem

i always buy my coffee from same store, he has a grinder himself so he grinds it for me ! i told him to grind for machine, and im sure its espresso, its boncafe coffee ! i had lavaza too ! also the lavaza ones was compressed like a brick ! but once i opened it it got soft:)

as i told you, i dont think i can get a real fresh coffee ! btw its packet !:)

the guy i buy my coffee from told me he's going to take a class in some other country , then he will teach me for free ! i guess im just doing it wrong ! , what i learned from video is to start on the surface of milk after it gets warm start heating the center !!!

milk steaming problem

i dont know what i changed but this time, it took 21 seconds to pour ! but it was drops not a full stream (sometimes drops got connected) anyway it gave me a almost 1mm thick good color crema , but im starting to think its the coffee, in my country there's no coffee maker's so they ship it from far other countries ! (and i guess they got them by shipping themselves :D) so it might be that the coffee is old !

but still there's steaming problem ! my milk gets like spider web and not bright + part watery and part milk !

if nobody has any idea or is sure its my machine i can post a video somehow ! (maybe dropbox or youtube!)

milk steaming problem

Pretty much the same ! Also this time on a transparent glass, second after pouring the bottom part is almost only water !

Also I feel my machine doesn't have good amount of steam ! + I think my machine takes longer than 20 sec to fill a espresso shot ! Even when empty

milk steaming problem

i cleaned my machine, it just gives steam good ! not as powerful as the ones on videos but it keeps almost the same ! i can post pictures !

when i moved to texturing part, it made my foam a little bubbly (guess i made an mistake there ! suddenly made the tip almost out of milk )

but the foam tasted good and still, the foam was bubbly and too thick ( it didn't really get mixed with coffee, couldn't do latte art ! just wherever i pour milk gets a little white !

anyway im not gonna mix it by hands (moving my pitcher clockwise on table :) ) it made my steamed milk a little bad and big in middle !

it looks to me that some part gets too thick and some part is just not steamed enough !

milk steaming problem

I cleaned it ! It still didn't make good foam ! It was warm milk with bubble foam top! I did everything ! Letting water come out , putting it in middle of milk , after it gets a little warm move the steam tip to bottom!

milk steaming problem

I have been trying for a year ! I can't steam mill ! Watched and read tons of guides! Anyway

This time , in middle of steaming a huge bouble poped !!!
When I was about to pour it was part plain milk and part heavy foam !!!! Nothing like ones in video ! I do everything ! Start with tip in middle and after it gets foamy I go down to make it warm (it doesn't get warm;( )

BTW also my espresso doesn't make rich cream ! Just a very thin small cream when I press hard !
