    Re: Rate my rosetta

    These are nowhere near neat or cymetrical, but! while i was looking at it earlier, I realised if you look at the two rosettas in the middle, and the attempted love heart underneath, you could actualy turn that into a reindeer from its back end! With enough sketching involved.. it could be really effective! will post it in when i perfect it! What do yous reckon?

    I think youd be better off trying to make it a reindeer from the front view.

    Thanks mate.

    I have been learning coffee for 2 years.

    The hardest thing for me is to achieve more consistent results espeically when stretching milk.

    Right click the pic and choose "copy image location"
    then paste that (using the insert image botton, 3rd from the left in the post formatting bar above.)
    Hope that helps.

    P.s Nice rosetta :)

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    My favourite so far is jezzahs. Great contrast between crema and foam, heart on top to finish, well patterned, nice wrap around.
    My only concern is i presume youre left handed.
    If youre serving the coffee to a right handed person, you might want to do the rosetta with handle on right, but otherwise, I rate yours the best so far.

    Gary :)

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    No prizes for what bean i used... ;)

    Got a technique for frothing milk on the EM6910 which i hope to share with you and others in the near future using photos which is a important factor for artwork Yash.

    To be continued ... ;)

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    Took a pic today arvo.

    I struggled with this one. Base of rosetta was washed out and tried to keep pouring the milk as close as possible from the jug to the crema to get definition but to no avail.
    At least i kept my hand steady to achieve a straight pull through.
    Can anyone help me how to improve the base as i always have problems with this.

    Much appreciated.

    Heh, Im starting to get a pour technique that suits me! slowly but surely turning from miscellaneous blobs to rosettas! Using a Breville BES860, Ive only had the machine for a week* ;D

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    I rate yours as very good Boos.
    Great to know people are knocking out some nice rosettas on humble machinery.

    With decent maintenance and technique, cant see how anyone cannot have a go at putting up their best shot.

    Even if you think its not a par with anyone else, at least youre giving it your best shot, and the advice you will receive should help you along as you get more experience/practice.

    Anyone else care to show their rosettas?
    Youuuucandooooit. ;)

    Here are a couple of mine, my problem is that I can never consistently get good milk and shots with my rocky and silvia. I really would love to watch a video of someone who has mastered their techniques with these machines!

    timmyc, there are heaps of Youtube videos on steaming and latte art. They can help you get your technique correct on the Silvia too.

    My tip would be that youve made sure youve bled the steam wand and that it is producing that great dry steam that Silvia can before plunging it into the milk jug!

    I always make sure to do that :/ I try to do everything consistently and still end up with varying results :(

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    Timmyc,

    Your microfoam looks good, and thats a start.

    I found the best way to do it is to let the milk push the leaves out when you do the wiggle.
    Pour into the center, slight wiggle, and let the flow of the milk widen the leaves, then slowly and steady move back while wiggling to the top, then lift and pour straight through.

    Keep practising, practising, practising.

    We look forwards to more pics of yours in the future. :)

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    Just an idea for a bit extra. Once youre done with the main game, just drip a few drops of foam from a teaspoon into the cup, then use your thermometer stem to make hearts.

    I find it really easy to do the rosetta to one side, then have two matching hearts on the other side. Thats my standard one for the missus, and I get it looking good every time. Doing the rosetta on the side, takes the pressure off to get it symmetrical - its really hard to go wrong (assuming you can do rosettas).

    I did the centre one, with hearts on each side last night for the first time. Result was quite symmetrical, but doesnt seem to have the artistic virtue of the other way. Anyway, posted here as an idea.

    Cheers, TB

    Re: Rate my rosetta

    Nice contrast and symmetry Jasonlew,

    Do you have a video?* Do you thoroughly mix the crema in before the art, ie pour textured milk around in the cup then concentrate in the middle until it marks and start the wiggle or do you concentrate right from the start on one spot then wiggle?* Hope that made sense to you.

    Gary S,

    been following your videos.* I noticed you used to do a thorough mix in the first 5 sets of your videos but lately youve been concentrating mostly in the middle pretty much straight away (unless youve edited that out, but definitely noticed a smaller mix-in from the 6th video onwards.

    Thanks for the kind words guys,

    Saoye - Unfortunately I dont have a video just yet, will definitely try to get one done though!
    I do pour textured milk around the cup first rather than going straight into the centre. Im not sure exactly how it helps, but I think it might help prevent the crema from breaking and causing washed out bases.
