    Nice work there! Your foam looks a little stiff...perhaps a little overheated? Not sure...try and get the pure velvet looking...liquid chrome milk...and the rosettas will pour so much more easily. You already have the technique in the wrist....it can only improve.

    Re: My latte art ...

    my art has gone downhill lately, I went from good milk to crap milk and im not sure what Im doing differently.
    On the other hand Im getting near perfect shots everytime and its tasting really good.

    OK, I know it wont win any prizes, but this is a first for me so found it pretty exciting - yesterdays course must have helped in more ways than I knew at the time!

    How do we know that china-barista wasnt the person who originally posted it on geek?

    I wish someone would think my latte art had been plagiarised...but I guess Ill be safe from that accusation for quite some time :D ;D

    This is the best one for quite some time and finally some fine leaves.

    Perhaps I need to work on my photography more than my pour? Heres a successful failure ;)

    and as soon as I figure out how to do it deliberately Ill call it just that :) In the mean time, its just something else to work towards :) I wonder how my gf would feel about me keeping the DSLR next to the machine. I already take up enough space on the kitchen bench.

    Re: Scott Callaghan Latte Art Workshop in Sydney

    Ok, I know this is no rembrandt, but believe me, a week ago this would have looked like a potato.

    Its no rosetta, but might pass for a fern ;D

    Anyway, its a start....

    Haha thats a good start! Certainly definable leaves, and you probably are using a home machine which would make things much harder too. Just keep working on "silkifying" your milk, and you will see massive improvements.

    If the images are hosted somewhere, you can put the urls in and post multiple pics within one post.

    If you host the pics at somewhere like imageshack.us or flickr, you can then link to that image.

    You can only upload one pic per post so that the Coffeesnob servers arent overly burdened with pics you upload, instead only needing to grab images from elsewhere on the net. It decreases serer loads and normally means that hiring is cheaper too. :)

    Re: My latte art ...

    Hi this is my first post, and my first piece of latte art ever acheved!

    I had some friends over and one is a newly discovered fellow coffeesnob. After tea I made him a coffee and naturally he wanted to watch my form. He wanted to see my rosettas, but I said "you wont get any rosettas out of me!" as I had never done one before. I poured the milk in gently (as you do) onto his Kenyan double ristretto, but as I got near the top he told me to shake the jug. So I shook, and finished up with a run through the middle as I knew was required (but had never done), and hey presto, a rosetta! (of sorts, anyway). Its not super duper but I was stoked. He had to wait for me to snap it before he could drink it.

    The jug is a 450ml Sunbeam job (EM0200) that I got (brand new) from a trash & treasure for $2. The spout is fairly fine, and we agreed that this helped. We tried again with the larger 800ml jug that comes with the machine and ended up with a mess. There was likely a number of factors at play but one was it was a larger radius on the spout.

    how do you get a double ristretto out of a single basket?

    Re: My latte art ...

    At the Sunbeam coffee training course they called it a double ristretto when you catch the stream from both outlets of the PF in a single cup. However I take your point that if using a single cup filter basket its probably not double any more. I edited that bit out later as it wasnt relevant to the story. IMHO the single basket holds about 3/4 of the content of the double basket.

    Re: My latte art ...

    that would be correct if it was a double basket.....but they are right...if you cut the shot short or slow down the pour using whatever technique you like.

    I read a David Schomer article that luca mentioned in his last blog post, and its definitely improving my consistency. Now I actually know what it was I was doing to get something decent in the past and can replicate it.
    Heres yesterdays effort. I can feel them getting better each day, so Ive moved the DSLR downstairs to be in closer reach ;)

    Something from this afternoon that shows how much of a difference the glass makes. My gf insists on a double shot in her giant "latte" glass. I poured myself a cap (& I never drink milk-based coffees, but I was determined to show her how much she was harming my art I had a laugh) in an ACF tulip cup. Shes as yet unconvinced.

    Looking good ray... I like having something visual for my guests to enjoy before they even take their first sip. My partners a chef & always says that we eat with our eyes. It just shows that youre putting love into what youre serving & sets the scene for the great textures & flavours theyre about to enjoy.

    Keep it up :)
