Half-fat or whole milk will be the best choice because low-fat like 2% fat or skim milk might not give you the desired results. The foam will also taste sweeter when you use whole milk. But, you will still get the froth you want and using the right type of milk is a mere matter of preference however, the taste of the froth will be better with whole milk.

The taste of the coffee does not entirely depend upon the froth you have, the major component is still your coffee. Make sure that you use good quality coffee and make it strong. Froth is only there to enhance the flavor, the main role is still held by the good quality and strong coffee. Prepare the coffee before you began frothing your milk.
Step #1 Pour milk into saucepan
To begin with, pour some milk into saucepan or in a cup that can be used with microwave oven. You can also heat your saucepan or cup on stove, this completely depends upon your preference. For every cup of coffee ou will be needing approximately half cup of milk.
Step #2 Put the milk on high heat
If you are using stove to heat the milk then preheat the burner with medium heat and leave it until the steam starts to come out of the milk and if you are using microwave oven for the same purpose then place the saucepan or the cup in the microwave oven on high heat for at least 30 seconds and you will see the steam rising up from the milk.

If you are using a glass jar then it should be one with a tight lid, then pour the same amount of milk as in the previous procedure (approximately half cup) into the glass jar and make sure that the level of milk should not rise above the half way point because you need to have enough room for the froth to rise.
Step #2 Place the lid and shake the jar
After pouring in the milk of required amount tighten up the lid and shake the jar well for 30 seconds or until the milk has become double in size (which will take about 30 seconds).
Step #3 Microwave the milk after removing the lid
Next step is to get the lid off and place the glass jar in the microwave oven and heat it on the high for about 30 seconds or until the steam starts to come out of the milk (same as the previous procedure). This will stabilize the foam on the top of the milk in the microwave.
Step #4 Tap the bottom of the saucepan or cup
You need to tap the cup or saucepan with foamed milk to remove any large air bubbles and this will compress you froth.
