    Help - frothing and latte art

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone! Need some help with frothing and latte art. The milk volume doubles after frothing, and it looks smooth after pouring, but somehow it doesn't seem 'thick' enough for latte art. There's only a slight bit of staining at the end which looks like a very thin layer of froth. What happened? Any pointers? Thanks!

    Hi coffeerookie,

    Are you familiar with pouring technique for latte art? If the milk volume has increased you should get enough microfoam for latte art. I have seen barista making latte art for flat white, which has very thin microfoam.

    Anyway this vid might be helpful for you vid https://youtu.be/yOl1skOl7C8

    As an experiment, just try pouring reasonably quickly and very close to the surface. You should get a large white blob, enough to convince yourself that art is possible. The rest is fine tuning.

    Just looked at the video. Yeah, covers it pretty well :-)
