  • One take latte art challenge!

    Saw this over at HB and thought it would be a good idea for here. Basically, you go out, pull your shot, steam your milk, start filming, pour your art, stop filming, post the video. It doesnt matter how crap your pour is, you post the video 

    On mine you can kind of see on the follow through, my portafilter handle got in the way  >. Still came out really good. I must confess, i poured an attempt before this one and filmed it, only to find out that my camera didnt have an SD card in it. Popped one in and took a photo for fairness.

    first attempt:

    Not very proud of it but I thought id upload my honest first attempt rather than recording until I got a good one :P

        You dont split your milk? Pouring with a full jug is hard!

          Hee hee.
          If i had to pour with a full jug for two coffees, id suggest pour a heart or apple for the first one, as it seems to work out well coming out first, then after that, the choice is yours.

              Thanks for starting the thread Zaneus, great idea. I like the angle you used so we can all see your technique, not just the end product.

              Unfortunately I put our camera through the washing machine last weekend (was looking a bit dirty....seriously though it was an accident of course!).

                  I guess I do and I dont.. That was why I went for the tulip up first then the rosetta.

                  The tulip was ok but the rosetta was where I failed bad. I am still practising with latte art so I guess I will always split my milk from now on to try and get better results

                  Warming up my machine now after a day at work so I guess I will record another.

                        Great idea for a thread. I really hope it takes off and if it does it is going to be my new favourite thread me thinks.....

                          Guess ill upload another video. This time a heart. Everything was bad about this coffee. Fast espresso thin milk bad pour. Plus doctor who in the background! heh.

                          for others who cant be bothered making a video and waiting for it to upload, photos are quite fine, video prefered sure, but its not a big deal. As long as you take a photo of your first attempt

                          edit: just noticed the strange angle my wrist is at there. Woohoo learning something new!
