    Nice pics all through here! Thought I would post a soy latté i did, as not many people seem to have pics of soy ones. Its a bit harder to work with I guess too... This is with Bon Soy premium milk. Freepoured, off course!

    Wow.... too good Ozi 8-)

    Is that your very own LM there peeking out from the corner? If it is youll have to give us a pictorial expose of all its wondrous delights in the near future.... Not many LM owners around the traps here ;)

    They are normally fairly wierd, but with Bon Soy (a japanese Soy milk and damned expensive) they are actually quite nice. Quite an earthy taste to the milk which takes some acclimatisation, but good none the less. Although, one of my customers has a soy decay mocha with 1 equal to take away. I mean really, why bother?! Thats not coffee... :P

    EDIT: fixed quote formatting for multiple quotes.

    I work at Cafe Beelzebub in Smith st Fitzroy, had a better double rosetta on a soy today but no camera handy.

    I should add that Nathan who started this thread has helped me with my art over the last year and that my sisters rosettas are better than mine on a good day, more defined and even.

    I thought Id add a post to the coffee art love that goes on here. I do apologise for the relatively crappy phone camera picture.

    The cup is actually a tall mug that we use at work.

    Re: Great Latte Art Pics

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys.

    Ive been in Perth for most of this week and I havent had internet access.

    As for the coffee, Im always roasting and blending different beans so it would be hard to pinpoint what coffee was used in each of the pictures. Most of my pours are fairly restricted.

    Id like to pour rosettas with fewer but larger ribbon like leaves. I just cant seem to pour the milk slowly enough *:-/

    you need to pour a little faster, with a slower hand action.

    The young bloke actually asked if I wanted a Jester, a Viking or a Clown. I went the Jester! Its a crappy camera phone picture but you get the idea!

    one of my favs

    EDIT: pic is bit larger than i thought sorry

    Welcome kaiis...... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Generally, we prefer that images are kept to a maximum size of 640x480 pixels (W x H).

    If you are unsure about how to easily resize your images,
    this link will hopefully assist :).

    Thanks,
    Mal.

    Good ones, guys!

    This also is not great art, but it is one I did a few minutes ago and
    tasted great!

    Keep up the good work, all...

    Cyril, it takes a lot of patience and practice...once you get the mechanics right, it becomes like second nature....like riding a bike. Latte art is something any self respecting barista can do without thinking twice about it....but that is only because we make hundreds of coffees per day, steaming litres upon litres of milk. Making coffee at home is different. You dont make 500 plus coffees a day....most people who make coffee at home probably dont even make 5 a day.

    Here are some tips you should keep in mind:

    1) have patience, it takes time
    2) learn the mechanics, do a course if you need to learn the mechanics, watch youtube videos...the internet is a great source of latte art videos.
    3) practice with every milk base coffee you make!


    Youll be pouring rosettas with the best of em in no time.

    Best of luck....David.

    here is a photo by Sydney Low, mid pour on my first rosetta of my designer coffee for the 2009 Vic Latte Art Champs.

    Single espresso in to a really shallow noodle bowl, dusted with choc.
