An extremely hot temperature is required to produce the foam. But, too hot temperature can hurt your tongue. Starbucks baristas steam milk to a temperature between 150°F and 170°F for a perfect cappuccino.


Espresso is a strong black coffee made by forcing by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso is thicker than any other coffee brewing method. It also contains more caffeine per unit volume than most coffee beverages. It is characterized by a crème on its top. It is known as the base of other brewing methods. The optimal temperature for espresso is 190 to 196 degrees Fahrenheit.
