    The Twins!

    Looking at the two coffees I just made (and yes, always one for my wife as well), it occurred to me they were quite similar - twins, I thought!

    The main problem for me is that my machine is very slow, so the first one tends to go off by the time the second one is made.

    Anyway, anyone who can do latte art, can pull a really good one off sometimes, but how consistent and repeatable are you?

    And thus, The Twins competition is born!

    No photoshopping allowed!

    Re: The Twins!

    Very well done TB. If only Id thought to capture them with my camera I could have entered this comp with my early morning cuppa from the last two days. Yesterday I pulled off a perfect tulip in a heatwave. Quite appropriate as the temp both days has been 40+. And today, another perfect specimen. Maybe tomorrow...


    Cheers

    As a former barista extraordinaire with my own cafe, my considered professional perception of your art-work from a domestic machine is praise-worthy - but give me something gutsy other than a frkkin rosetta mate.!

    As a former barista extraordinaire, ;) I trust youll notice the self-deprecation in the post ... wish I could micro-foam the same with a domestic.

    Were all baristas - just in different formats/styles.

    Nice work bud

    Re: The Twins!

    Wow... looks like this competition is dead in its tracks.

    GrindOn Demand (GOD?), I agree about the rosettas - theres only so many you can do before the boredom sets in. Im working on the one I like where you pour into the side of the cup (creating a zig-zag around the circumference of the cup), and finishing with a heart. Try getting TWO of those in a row identical! After I mess a few of those up, I resort to doing a few rosettas for the feel-good effect.

    giggled like a schoolgirl!!! My wife says my latte art is best saved for her ladies doctor and after we have had friends recoil in horror... without even tasting the coffee, I am inclined to agree. I will leave the artwork to you fine people for now! Well done!

    Re: The Twins!

    Here is my set of septuplets. Theyre not identical really but I got my machine recently and have just been making some coffee for fun with some older beans I had around.

    Normally itd be inappropriate to have a favourite child but the tulip in the middle right is my fav :P

    Tomorrow I am going to try for identical twins. In the coffee cup of course :D

    Re: The Twins!

    Hi everyone, i mentioned i was going to produce a set of twins but it;s going to take some time before i do.
    A member of family is in a hospital for medical reasons.
    Likewise i will be in one in 8 hours time to have my varicose vein pulled out.
    Bear with me, hopefully this week i will produce a set with one attempt only.

    Back soon. Gary at G

    Re: The Twins!

    Heh, thanks! i probably could have gone one more in the tulip but i was scared of ruining it. I can rarely go over 4, but i had heaps of room on the 5th, hence why its a huge blob ;D.
