So the big question on everyones lips is:
Could a barista teach a doppio espresso drinking roaster to pour milk?
Well my latte art sucks, it always has as I only ever pour milk for testing coffee flavours so I dont get much practical time to play.
Sometimes in the past when I have poured milk a pattern appeared, sometimes nothing and while I knew my espresso shots were good and the milk texture was ok I was missing some key technical aspects that meant that no end of practice was ever going to make me better.
What I learnt tonight was a whole lot of tips and techniques that will allow me to practice better ...and better practice should result in better results.
Now while the below pictures from tonight will make many of you laugh, I can see improvement and certainly have a far better understanding of what I should be doing to make my latte art better.
