Looking to swap my 600ml Espro Toroid Jug for a Red Motta (Teflon lined) 350ml or 750ml. The toroid is the original one not the one with the levels marked inside. Since I got my Londinium R I find that I can make decent microfoam without the assistance that the toroid gives, so I thought I'd get a matching set of Red Motta's instead!
Having a bit of a clearout and got the following available: 600ml Toroid jug - bought from dfk41 last March and just too big for my purposes so gathering dust. Has the little bobble thing in the base to aid steaming, which I think is better for single hole wands but there's loads of stuff on their website. Shows signs of use inside (I couldn't get the pictures to show anything) - there's a ring where the usual milk line is but nothing that would impair flavour or kill you. You could probably clean it off with some vinegar if you put in the effort. £10 forum donation. 15g ridgeless VST. Not much to say, it's a VST basket. I bought an 18g one so this is surplus to requirements. Also £10 forum donation. I'll pay postage to mainland UK. I also don't mind if you want to donate more Cheers Anton [ATTACH=CONFIG]19434[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]19435[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]19436[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]19437[/ATTACH]
With my milk! About twice I've got milk perfect, but then I can never do it again, even if I do exactly the same thing. Ive got temp tags, a thermometer and a 20 oz jug and I've just also bought an espro toroid 20 oz jug to see if that helped but I still can't get it right. The main problem is I don't get any proper microfoam until the very last few ml of milk at the end of the jug, by which time the cup is full and there isn't enough milk foam to even attempt latte art, I just end up with a dribble of white foam on top. With the toroid, I tried just sticking the wand in the middle about half way down.. That didn't work, so I tried the usual way with the tip just above the surface for a while and then in the centre, that didn't work.. I tried the usual tip above the surface for the whole process and that didn't work... I'm using whole milk and the rancilio wand, and I know I can do it, as I have before, just why can't I do it consistently?
For sale ESPRO Toroid milk pitchers minus original box. I have one 12oz and one 20oz pitcher that have been barely used and are in excellent condition. These pitchers are beautifully designed and solidly constructed with a fantastic feel in your hand. Pictures attached, sorry if they appear sideways .. :/ I believe most of you will know about these pitchers and how ridiculously easy it is to produce good quality microfoam, but if not please check out the link: http://espro.ca/toroid/ Its main advantages being: READY - AIM - FIRE - Perfected milk flows are created by the unique shape, which includes a simple bump in the centre and the unique wall shape. Aim at it for a perfect toroidal (donut-shaped) milk flow. Aim beside it for a perfect vortex. Steaming as easy as ready - aim - fire. FEEDBACK THAT IS EASY TO SEE - Looking down into the steaming pitcher, you can see an even flow of milk coming up all sides of the pitcher. Easy to see. Easy to teach. Easy to achieve consistent microfoam! HARNESS ALL THE STEAM YOU HAVE - Not all machines have a ton of steam! The pitcher's patent pending shape amplifies your steam, efficiently directing the milk flow along the walls and back to the steam tip. Perfect milk flow is achieved by design, not by chance. Prices including postage to UK: 12oz: £16 [sOLD to Deejaysuave] 20oz: £20 [sOLD to Gadgetz] Any questions, fire away. Christos
