My Philips/Saeco espresso machine does not froth the milk well

The frothing quality of your milk system from your Philips/Saeco espresso machine can sometimes be less than expected. Use these possible causes and solutions to solve this issue.

Milk temperature

Milk temperature can affect the frothing quality. We advise to always use cold refrigerated milk to ensure great milk foam.

Amount of milk

To prevent air from being drawn in and to ensure a perfect frothing result, it is important that you use enough milk. Try increasing the amount of milk to improve the milk foam.

Milk type

Different types of milk can result in a different amount and quality of 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

The milk system is dirty

Always make sure that all parts are clean when using the milk system. Clean the parts according to the information in the user manual.

Note: Only the LatteGo milk system is dishwasher safe. Other milks systems, such as milk carafes, are not dishwasher safe.
