  • Learning Latte Art

    Hi all, I thought if nobody minds, I would create a thread of my latte art? Kinda to see how it develops with more practice.

    This is all with my trusty Sunbeam EM3600 machine.

    The large one on the left in coffee4.JPG is on soy milk.
    I kinda like how "messy" coffee5 is.
    And I am quite happy with how coffee8 turned out. Best so far.

    Im getting up to scratch slowly. =)

    Any advice/constructive criticism is welcome. =)

    I hope the photos arent too large?

      I used to have one of those machines! They can give some good coffee with fresh beans and unpressurised baskets. Keep up with it... youll only get better with practice, and that means drinking more coffee!

        It surely is addictive.

            I dont even know how that happened... I deleted a 4 from the date. But its fixed now.

            New shot of a 150mL doppio piccolo latte, milk was a little overstretched I think, but it still looks good.

              Hi Java, with the size issue, is it more of a dimension issue or the actual size of the image. Cause I believe I can resize the dimensions using BB code? [img=640x480]... This will help??

                The bottom line is the size of the file. Yabb will resize the picture automatically to fit the viewers browser window. So its not about the displayed size but rather the size of the uploaded picture/file. Ideally the uploaded pic should be around 640x480/800x600 pixels. That gives a high enough resolution for most pics to show the necessary details while keeping the file size down so those on slow connections arent sitting there forever waiting for a page to load.

                With the original size of your pictures and the number of them somebody on dialup would have been sitting there for over 15 minutes waiting for this one page to load.

                  New favourite latte. I almost dont want to drink it. Its just sitting there next to my computer looking pretty.

                  Ah. It tastes great.

                      Keep practising. Also watch plenty of latte art videos on youtube to see what works and what doesnt for other people

                          Close to latte art? Youll get there!

                          Only one photo today. The others didnt work out at all. I suppose, in all fairness, I should be posting them as well, shouldnt I?

                            A decaf latte from this evening. Unfortunately its not a great photo, and I kind of drank it all... Ah well.

                              Did you get around to recording any pouring? would be good to see your technique so we could offer some advice along the way! My latest video is up.. do you check out a lot of latte art videos on youtube?
