Latte Art " Photo Gallery"
« on: 12/09/2011, 09:47 PM »
Just thought I would start a latte art photo gallery

I am personally not that great at latte art but occasionally get one right every now and then

I know that some Crema members are fantastic at it  :o
This thread is for all that try  ;D

As I just fitted a new steam wand on my BZ40 I decided to try and pour a realistic tulip

What do you think

ROFL you'll be waiting a long long time for mine  ;D  really really hoping the second photo comp isn't latte art (hint hint).

In saying that I haven't even tried, maybe when I go and do the Sunbeam course they'll teach me there...

Don't worry Nic, my latte art looks like people's bottoms.  So much that I've stopped trying becasue friends thought I was going out of my way to be crude  :'(  I'm not saying that my efforts won't win a prize.... just not on this or any other PG rated site!  ;)

took this one recently - let me just say that my latte art is officially crap and I'm quite happy to keep it that way - as I'm more interested in whats in the cup than what's on top of it...

oh yeah and its in black and white coz I'm a renaissance man

Art is secondary or thirdly to taste for me. I still play around a bit and even in takeaways still make an effort for a rough heart fern or tulip. Being single Hearts for the ladies of course  ;). Had a really good coffee in Melbourne a while back at a place where on purpose no art attempt was made (The Little Mule).

Poor Art follows  ;D

I suffer from the same affliction Brett. Attempting to make a lovely heart for the Little One each morning, alas by the time the cup arrives at her beside, it's a busted-ass and she just gives me "that look" followed by "is that supposed to be funny ?".

Is the pic the maximum size allowable? It's 840 by 480

Maximum is judged in KB
-  Max attachment size per post: 1000KB,
- Max size per attachment: 300KB,
- Max number of attachments per post: 4
- Multiple files must be under 300kb each  

However these sizes suit our forum the best
640 X 480 or 800 X 600

And thanks for the question Gary as it prompted me to update the instruction post to include photo size limits ect  ;D

Hello again.

The reason i ask is that the pics i sent here looks a smaller result compared to the other forum, therefore it's difficult to see the latte art.

I'll remember to try the 800x600 next time.

Reminds me to make an appointment with the optometrist  ::)

Also due to a different layout this forum has a wider look to others. You can also link in images from outside if you like using the image tags above.

I'm not very good at latte art, but I managed to pull off a wonky rosetta like pour on my EM6910.

It was a cap for someone so the cocoa helped with the definition!!!

I've been trying my latte art for ages.  I always seem to get half of my coffee on the floor when I fill the cup too much.

Today the best heart I've ever had.  Took me ages to get the camera working to get the photo, so it's settled a bit, but this is the best I've done yet.  What do you guys think?  Any good?

Looks Good.
I would be very happy if my hearts looked anything like that. Must change the steam tip on my machine, the Boema still has the original one. It is a real skill to get the silky smooth milk each time.

I did a great design today by luck
I however took a minute or 2 to find the camera  ::)
It looked amazing when first poured but lost its sheen waiting for me to take the photo
