Right, so I'm just starting off in this home espresso thing, and I'm loving it so far! I know the basics of tamping the espresso and what the crema is, frothing and the temperature of milk, how to get a cappucino right but that's really it.

 

I've been very ... incorrect? In terms of some things so far, I've been using a mug to froth milk in! (It does the job, but I'd rather a stainless steel pitcher!) I'm wondering on where's the best place to get a small stainless steel pitcher, a milk thermometer in Fahrenheit, proper espresso cups and the likes.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

12oz and 20oz pitchers from CoffeeHit are ideal for steaming milk

You don't need to spend a fortune on these as they are consumables

 

That link also contains details of milk thermometers

Make sure you get one that fits your jug - go small rather than large for these sizes of pitchers

I would recommend either the Motta or the Espro Toroid jug to give great resultes. Make sure you get a milk therometer as well.

Thanks for all the help and links everyone, it's just a case of making a decision now! (And spend an hour or two browsing Coffee Hit by the looks of it ...)
