Methods and systems to deliver foamed beverages from liquid concentrate(s) through a dispenser machine are presented. In an embodiment, the method and system for improving foam quality by generating foam with the desired texture, stability and bubble size distribution comprises use of a low viscous liquid(s) to generate a primary foam, which is then stabilized by mixing it with liquid(s) of higher viscosity. To create high quality foam, different dosing protocols including two approaches such as delivery of foaming liquid concentrates at different concen...


The invention is claimed as follows: 1. A method for producing a foamed beverage, the method comprising: dosing at least one product component at a first concentration; dosing a diluent; combining the product component and diluent together to form a mixture; and mixing the mixture to form the foamed beverage, wherein the dosing of the product component and diluent is controlled so that the product component concentration in the diluent increases during at least one cycle of combining and mixing, wherein the product component concentration is increased b...
