Cool to see people trying these out. My experience with them was pretty much the same as yours - it seemed to make texturing the milk slightly easier and pouring latte art slightly harder. However, by fluke I think that I stumbled upon the answer ... and I hope that I can explain it in text ... so much easier in person! Basically, the angle at which spouts come out on normal jugs means that you have to tilt them less to get the angle of the jug closer to parallel with the table. So with the espro jug I needed to adjust my technique by holding the jug lower down and lifting the bottom of the jug up more ... in other words, making the line that the edge of the spout makes more parallel with the table ... or tilting the jug further forward. I hope that makes sense. Using the ordinary technique of frothing and splitting for two drinks resulted in relatively good results for me when pouring like this. However, I have probably tried this technique out less than a dozen times, so any feedback that you had on it would be appreciated. It seems to make sense to me that a different jug and spout shape requires a bit of a change to technique.
