BARISTA MILK FROTHING THERMOMETER – CAPPERFECTION

Sector:  FOOD SAFETY

LCR Hallcrest is able to provide a solution for baristas who want to create the perfect coffee, with an innovative Barista Milk Frothing Thermometer.

PROJECT – BARISTA MILK FROTHING THERMOMETER

Perfect froth forms between 62°C and 68°C depending on the type of milk you are frothing, foaming or steaming. So LCR has been tasked to come up with an innovative design for a thermometer for frothing milk for coffee.

Frothing allows airs to be pushed into the milk for your coffee, which improves and sweetens the taste compared to flat milk. In addition, there is a perfect temperature for perfect froth depending on the milk you use and once you find it you can keep on making light smooth rich froth every time.

AIM – MILK FROTHING THERMOMETER

To develop a thermometer which could be used to measure the temperature of frothed milk for Coffee. The client wants a measuring device which could be easily read, but would also be hygienic.

SOLUTION

As a global leader in liquid crystal thermometry we were readily able to develop a product which could be applied to the outside of a stainless steel jug, holding the steamed frothed milk.

The CapperfectionTM Froth Meter is a Liquid Crystal 3 Event Thermometer Strip combining critical temperatures 60°C, 65°C , 70°C. It perfectly adheres to the frothing jug and changes colour progressively as the temperature of the milk rises. Therefore, this allows the barista to judge the perfect temperature, precisely, every time!

Simple to apply, simple to use, reliable and long lasting.
