Simon if you want a tulip with a really good wrap around you need the milk the flow really well. The type of milk you use and the amount you stretch it will control this. I was using a non homogenised organic milk last week that tasted absolutely beautiful but boy was it ‘sticky’ and it made for terrible latte art no matter how little I textured it. With the right milk you need a very minimal amount of stretching to get that good flow for these type of patterns.
Cheers Leroy appreciate that mate. Yeah I usually use Pura full cream milk, or Coles brand, and they seem to texture well enough. May experiment with different milk types.

And yeah perhaps even less texturing, but I reckon if I did do any less it would definitely be more flat white than latte. But then perhaps maybe that's what they do in the comps, and that "latte art" just refers to the art and not the beverage (ie 1cm foam). Have poured into a variety of cups, and have settled on a very wide-lipped cup as I can get in really close.

My Profitec Pro 500 definitely has good steam power so this wouldn't be the issue. Have also considered jug type too, I think mine is just a cheapo 400ml jug, can't remember where I got it..

Recently bought a 300ml Cafelat jug just cos.. just a gift to myself. Totally deserve it right..? I mean.. it's better to have an extra jug anyway.. just in case! One might break... XD

Anyway! Am excited to use it, lots of people seem to like the Cafelat brand ones

4oz cups are definitely a bit trickier.

I love coffee. It's as simple as that.

Hi Simon,
I got one of these recently as well.  I am still adjusting to it, as my Bosco is a steam demon.

Ah nice, yeah I've only used it twice and I'm a big fan, seems to pour much better than my old one!

Nice Leroy! Here's one with my new jug, pours well, still haven't given rosettas a fair go apart from one or two, but am keen to work with this jug to nail them

Cheers KK

Not exactly a heart, but am very happy with this Cafelat jug! Still really wanna work on nailing these, am comfortable with double rosettas and swans, but the single rosetta has always eluded me and has always been hit and miss... it must be because of the need for detail, symmetry, balance etc

You’re doing better than me Simon. Here’s my last sorry excuse for a rosetta-

The definition is ok I guess. Shape is terrible though.

Here’s a piccolo latte from yesterday-


It’s much harder working in such a small cup.

Ah nice one, yeah piccolos definitely require a bit of focus.. I find that slowing down my pour as much as possible and not dumping it in too quick helps. But still, it fills up fast!
