My Saeco Espresso Machine is not frothing the milk well

To get the best possible milk froth quality with your Saeco Espresso Machine, try the following tips and see the types of milk you can use below.The milk temperature is not cold enoughThe milk temperature can affect the frothing quality. We advise that you always use cold, refrigerated milk to produce the best milk foam.Enough amount of milkTo prevent air from being drawn and to ensure a perfect frothing result, it is important to use enough milk. Try increasing the amount of milk to improve the milk foam.Recommended type of milkDifferent types of dairy or plant-based milk can result in different amounts and quality of foam. To enjoy a dense, silky milk foam, we recommend that you use one of the following types of milk:
  • Semi-skimmed cow's milk
  • Full-fat cow's milk
  • Lactose-free milk
  • Plant-based milk Note: Using a plant-based milk that has the right amount of fat and protein will get you the best possible dense foam. To ensure this, see if your favourite brand has a "Professional" or "Barista" edition formulated to produce great milk froth.
The milk system is dirtyAlways make sure that all parts are clean when using the milk system (please follow the indications in the user manual or our FAQs to clean them). 

Always pay special attention when cleaning the milk circuit system in your coffee machine. Try to prevent milk from drying up in it, as dried-up milk is difficult to remove.

For a thorough clean, you can use the Philips Milk Circuit Cleaner CA6705

If you have tried all these tips but your Saeco Coffee Machine still does not froth the milk as expected, please contact us for further assistance.
