    The more I think about this the more the idea is awful...

    How can a Jug make Latte art over any other pitcher if you can't heat milk properly? Why is it plastic? How much is it going to cost? If it's $5 then sure! I'll try one.. If it's $30 then no.

    $248HK is around $44 here.. By the time you add bullshit tax, we're looking at a $50 plastic pitcher :|

    I think the point is to steam your milk in your stainless one and then split into this jug for the pour. I don't get it myself. Just another opportunity for a coffee company to make money from a winner of a competition. Don't waste your money.

    I pour all my art from the cheap jug from coffee parts and hate using anything else!

    But you have skills! Depressingly I realised a long time ago that no jug would provide latte art ability, it was going to take practice.
