I have just joined - getting fed up of trying to steam properly with my Gaggia Classic...

 

Welcome, have you changed the standard wand to the Rancilio Silvia wand, makes one of the best improvements you can do to the Classic. I get great microfoam with mine.

I found the forum by Googling 'coffee forum'. I already knew about TMC, CG and H-B, but they seemed pretty quiet as far as UK posting traffic, so guessed there must be somewhere new :)

I bumped into Glenn at a party and half an hour later, when we were still talking about the best coffee grinders, he suggested I join.

I arrived at this site because Claudette from Bella Barista advised me to take a look following a lengthy and very helpful guidance session with her on the phone. This 'Barista' hobby is a captivating pastime that becomes intimidating the more you learn!

Thankfully 'coffee forums' provides a library of helpful information donated by like minded coffee drinkers, I will be asking lots of questions for quite some time. A basic cappuccino formula would be a very good place to start.

A cappuccino is a third espresso to a third milk to a third microfoam. So, 2 ounces gives a 6 ounce drink but you can vary this formula

As per your taste. I usually use a 6 ounce cup with a ristretto of 1 ounce to 2 of milk

What do you want to know then clown? By brewing, do you mean a specific coffee type?
