Subject: ? for Mullka Express owners
I own a Mullka Express unit that makes something similar to a
cappuccino or latte, but not the actual thing. However, it is quick
and fast for someone who wants that and pretty much tastes better than
just a cup of coffee. The only problem I have with it is that the
drink, when done, is not very hot. In fact, it is quite mild. Am I
doing something wrong? You expierence the same thing? If so, how did
you remedy the situation?

Thanks.

You're not doing anything particularly wrong - it's just that the little
bit of steam that is sent through the coffee and milk in the upper pot
is hardly enough to really heat things up very much.

Two things you could try that might help are

1) heat the pot up at a lower flame or heat level so that the whole pot
gets warmer before the coffee starts running into the upper pot, and

2) pour the milk into the upper part of the pot, or set it out in
another container, well ahead of time to give it a bit of time to lose
some of its chill. It's not going to spoil if it's out of the
refrigerator for a while before you use it.

Thanks Bob,
You know, for a fast cup of coffee, it really is not bad. True
cappuccino would be better, but sometimes one just does not have the
time or energy involved.
I will try your ideas. I made the milky coffee drink the last time
and let it stay on the burner until the nose was completely gone. That
did help.
