    Awesome! I feel an Ode coming on in tribute, except Id face an Ode-ous escalation from Java “He of many sobriquets” Phile, and my brain still hasn’t recovered from the last one.

    Ya - me also, 13 years by my reckoning. Oddly enough the last session was also with a citizen of the United States - it went for three hours, but degraded over that time under the influence of vodka into rolling puns. It was Russia, it was cold and there was nothing to do but drink and talk.

    You say that like being punny is a bad thing! Any sentence is a good time to have some pun! Ive often been accused of making pun of everything. And ya know what? Theyre right! I find puns to be utterly mooving! Not to mention punny! ::) ;D 8-)

    And yes, some have put forth the opinion that even with all the beans I have, my hoppers not full! :D ;D :o

    Its not the quantity of beans in the hopper but the quality which matters ;)

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    This is the story of that cup

    For that one i was planning on doing a normal single rosetta, so when i started pouring i wasnt shaking enough so it was really skinny, i thought why *not try a triple since there is room on both sides so i tried... i pulled the middle one and started pouring the one on the left after that i tried to pour another on the right but ended up with not enough foam :( just came out as a blob. I got my themometer out and started drawing :)

    oh and thanks for comments :)

    There is soo much truth in that statement Belinda! I find that when I dont try too hard and just let it pour, I can get some art happening but when I try to do it, it just doesnt happen at all! Someone said here somewhere that latte art should practically pour itself. Theres a whole lot of truth to that statement too. ;)

    Doubles?! Thats pretty damned good, but Im surprised that Luke lets you near his steam wand ;P Or is he out of the picture at the airport branch?

    Personally, I like the single the best. They always seem to come out the nicest.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Hhhmmm....I should post some pics of some of the more interesting moka type brewers I have. One of my favorites is an old 4-spout unit with a built-in alcohol burner. Ive never used it but it sure looks neat! ;D

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    Luca, Ive sent Luke on a Zen type journey. To master his skill he must suffer by using aged, dying espresso machines, take-away cups, and airport customers (no patience). Only once he does this can he truly appreciate my Reneka and learn not to abuse it.

    But what can I say, if you work around somebody that serves triple and quad rosettas on a regular basis you learn to lift your game to avoid embarrasment. Although still unwilling to degrade myself to etching :p

    Today i got a chocolate shaker with mesh, so i decided to sprinkle some on top and seems like it has a better contrast
    It sorta isnt symetrical but like the contrast :)

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    Well, its just like pouring foam and the milk is all gone so it doesnt pull down the foam with the milk so the foam is light and fluffy so it stands out. If that is what you mean? :-?

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    Sorry - no pics posted here yet, but an update on my plight for a rosetta...

    My Giotto is now 3 weeks old (thanks Chris) and Ive discovered that if her steam apparatus is not handled correctly, she behaves just like a baby - howling and spewing milk everywhere. I was beginning o think that her "great set of lungs" might be too much for me to master.

    Thanks to one of Greg Ps comments, I now start of gently and softly before doing the full immersion and speeding things up - have finally got the texture right...its wonderful...now all I have to do is get the wiggle right and woo hoo...ehh, hmm, sounds like Im describing sex.

    Excuse me while I go back to my machine.....!

    Cant find the thread, but when Andy made a comment something like "...looks like you ran out of cup", it got me thinking...

    thats exactly what happens to me...

    maybe the cups Im using are just too small...

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    Hey, as i have NO latte art skill and couldnt find it on the net , i decided to present a challenge to my fellow CSs - to pour a double rosetta with a heart.

    What i am imagining is two rounded rosettas up the sides meeting at the top with a heart in the middle of the cup.

    Sound complicated? Well its worth MAJOR kudos to whomever can post a pic of it.


    Have fun.
