Oh, I so find milk foam useless and annoying also... Ughhh
"Hot milk greatly improves the taste of coffee, but I find milk foam useless and annoying. My mother (who makes the most delicious coffee in the world), is obsessed with a particularly potent mechanical foam maker. The result is a layer of impenetrable foam, a kind of lacto-stucco. I have to gnaw my way through it before being able to get to the actual coffee. Apart from that she really makes the best coffee in the world."
