Stainless Steel Milk Jugs for Steaming & Latte Art
The need to purchase this accessory for automatic coffee machinery equipped with a built-in cappuccino maker usually depends on individual preference and barista skills. However, lever and semi-automatic machines with steam wands were quite another matter. This professional equipment allows preparing froth separately and use it for creating coffee cocktails manually.
The process of whipping milk with steam has its nuances and requires experience. However, regular training teaches you how to handle the steam wand better and produce latte art masterpieces. Professional metal milk jugs play an essential role in this case. The containers help to maintain the correct liquid temperature and allow beginners to adjust the product's volume using the measuring scales printed on the sides.
Features of Coffee Milk Jugs for Latte Art
Spout shape and the sizes of milk jugs are critical when choosing the right accessory as these parameters allow baristas to control the flow of milk froth and create stunning patterns on the drink surface. Latte art experts favour jugs with pointed and tapered noses to help create a thin milk channel. Depending on the desired result, some specialists usually only need one milk jug 600ml or 350 ml. Well-trained professionals, in turn, use an additional set of special tools and spoons to work with details.
The Blue Star Coffee assortment offers a definitive collection of different milk jugs for sale, among which we focus on first-class latte art products from Joe Frex, Motta, and other well-known manufacturers. You can also find additional tools and gift sets in the Spoons and Barista Accessories sections, which will be a pleasant surprise for latte and cappuccino fans.
Large and Small Milk Jugs from Blue Star Coffee
The variety of types and sizes of milk jugs defies the imagination and is a bit overwhelming for beginners who don't know how to make the right choice. Experienced professionals usually use 350 ml, 500-600 ml, or 0.75-litre milk jugs. Other container sizes are somewhat less standard. Notably, milk jugs' sizes define a few additional working nuances that baristas need to consider when whipping milk directly.
Please note that the optimal filling of coffee milk jugs is 2/3, i.e., milk jug 600ml is suitable for whipping from 200 to 300 ml of milk required for 2 cups of cappuccino.
Small milk jugs hold less liquid, complicating the frothing process and increasing the risk of milk overheating. For this reason, many coffee drinkers prefer to use more liquid at first and make more froth.
Large milk jugs require specific barista skills to lower the steam wand and whip the liquid entirely correctly.
The type of coffee machine used also influences milk jugs' choice – make sure the steam spout can reach the jug's bottom at an angle. If necessary, take measurements of steam wands in advance and select a container of the appropriate height.
Walls thickness – the thicker they are, the better because the surface of coffee milk jugs accumulates some heat and allows the milk to be whipped longer. This option is not critical for beginners but is vital for professionals seeking a more delicate and fluffy coffee froth.
Either way, don't worry if your first impression of working with milk froth is unfortunate. Experience comes with regular training, and original stainless steel milk jugs from Blue Star Coffee will make the learning process as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!
Pay Attention to the Material of Barista Milk Jugs
In addition to the spout shape and the sizes of milk jugs, several other nuances significantly impact these accessories' functionality. Primary, it is the material from which the containers are made. Plastic jugs usually come with espresso machines, but they don't boast a long service life and can't maintain temperature. Ceramic milk jugs look original, but they hold a little product, which is why they are suitable for home use mainly. Metal containers are versatile, offering excellent thermal conductivity and wear resistance.

Best Milk Frothing Jugs
To get the best froth when steaming for Cappuccino or Latte art, your milk must always be cold, taken directly from the fridge 4°C and fresh! Cold milk will give you microbubbles, allowing you to stretch the milk for frothy cappuccinos.
In a commercial setting for the café or bar, you should have different frothing jugs:
The ideal size of commercial milk frothing jug should be 1 litre or 1.5 litres and smaller — 5-litre milk jug for flat white coffees.
Teflon coated jug is ideal for soya milk or Italian chocolate, so the milk won't stick after frothing and is easily cleaned after.
Coloured jugs will allow you to distinguish between full-fat milk and skimmed kinds of milk.
Latte art milk steaming jugs are best for latte art as they have a pouring spout and a shape that aids microbubbles.
Handle free milk steaming jugs are perfect for latte art and flat white coffees. They are well insulated so that they won't burn your hands.
For the home, the ideal milk jug should be from 400ml to 600ml.
A more miniature 0.4l jug is ideal for 1-2 cups as you have just enough room and is quicker than a larger jug.
The 0.6-litre jugs are best suited for larger 58mm groups and will give 2-3 cups at a time.
The handle-free milk jugs are in smaller sizes. 4.5 litres and will make 1-2 cups at a time. They have silicon insulation to protect your hands.
These jugs are perfectly designed and shaped to enable you to create smooth milk foam for cappuccinos and latte macchiato. The spouts are ideal for latte art on cappuccinos.
Home milk frothing jug: 0.4 or 0.6 litres (Ideal for Ascaso, Rancilio and Gaggia coffee machines).
HOW TO STEAM MILK?
Stretching the milk, which introduces air, and the rolling phase, which blends the air with the milk to achieve the fine micro-foam. Make sure to never heat up the milk foam beyond 160°F, other wise you can burn the milk and the customers taste buds, which can take a day to recover.
