Gaggia Accademia: No Froth When Steaming and Milk Burning

Learn what to do if your milk looks like it is burning or boiling, or the steam wand is producing too much steam, on the Gaggia Accademia.

Too Much Steam/Milk Boiling

If your Gaggia Accademia's steam wand is producing too much steam, or your milk looks like it is boiling, then you may need to adjust your frothing technique. Boiling milk, or milk that is getting too hot before frothing is completed is an indication that an incorrect frothing technique is being used.

Review the section of this article that addresses frothing difficulties for more information.

If you have tried adjusting your technique and the wand still appears to be producing too much steam, then a steam test should be completed. Follow the steps outlined in the steam test document attached at the bottom of this article.

If the machine is within the specified steam test range, then the machine is producing the correct amount of steam and an adjustment to the frothing technique is necessary. Using a carafe that is chilled in a freezer before frothing helps keep the milk cooler for longer, allowing for more time to froth before the milk begins to scald.
