I tried both milks from traditional wet and the slayer dry steam and again like others found it was definitely sweeter, I didn’t get a chance to taste it in coffee.
The milk they were using is what I use in the shop everyday, and I was really surprised by how sweet it was tbh, however I rarely if ever just taste the steamed milk on its own.
I wasn’t however mind blown by it. I was more mind blown by the fact that it was completely clear coming out of the steam wand haha
I was intrigued by the texture, it seemed to be a lot dryer then usual, texture wise. The exhibitor was quite busy when I was there do I completely missed the science explanation so I’m sorry if that’s common sense obvious ( wet foam = wetter, vice versa) this led me to thinking of day to day use. I think the milk, by looking at it ( in my opinion) looked a little bit tricky to pour nice latte art. I know it’s not the most important thing but I still believe quality presentation is very important… Does anybody know if my assumption is correct, is it harder to pour nice latte art ?
The machine did look beatiful … Nowhere near as sexy as the new spirit by Kees van westen. It is gorgeous and unlike the slayer I got to play around with it at the world of coffee and it was a great machine to use… An absolute pleasure ( added points for looking like a spaceship) it may just win my heart over from la marzocco.
