Good vid Michael,

I like the way you move the cup/glass rather than move the jug back. I should try that.

Thanks for the comments guys.  :thumb:

It's been a while since I took latte art photos. Pouring art in these glasses is a B, but slowly getting there.

Very silky milk there Sam.

I get silkier milk on my two hole tip with the Oscar compared to the Strada at work.

Thanks for the compliments.  :D

I find that it is easier to steam on lesser holes too. I'm currently using a 4 holes steamer at my work, and the single hole at home. It's both possible to get bubbleless microfoam (after plenty of practising on the 4 holes). But in my experience, they may all look the same but the texture is another thing. And I suspect hole size makes a big difference there. Even though I'm getting such silky-looking foam on the 1 hole, they're still not as silky/integrated (in mouth texture)as compared to the Crossland CC1 machine I used previously. That machine/steamtip produced the best microfoam so far in my journey(including the one I get in cafes). The foam & milk really does not seem to have a separation for a very long time. I supposed even microfoam has different level of microfoam-iness,and latte art is not the best indicator.

Here're two more. One on chocolate base (no coffee), another a swan attempt.   :P

And in a tulip cup to boot.

The choc boosted espresso base makes it photogenic and with the well executed pour, is a winner.

Well, I was dragged back into the workforce for a couple of weekends recently. (Completely willing. Not every day you get to play with a Strada EP). Latte art was back up to par by my third full day!

My free pour effort this morning. First coffee of the day before heading off to the gym. It's a half baked Rosetta.

A little macchiato free pour



Some basic etching. Don't mind the mess - I had free beans to churn through.

Great work GeekKopi, I love looking at latte art but have no hope of doing it, I can't even draw a stick man  ^-^.

What kind of cup is the purple one?

The purple one is one of my set of 6
Bialetti colorati espresso cups and saucers. They are great for a single or double shot

Thank you GeekKopi, I do believe I have seen them on the bay of evil before :).

Edited; I just had a look and there are some there. I was kind of hoping they came in cappuccino size but it wasn't to be.
No matter how hard I try I can not do espresso  :P.

Not really latte art but I think it's art nonetheless. Result from this mornings grinder maintenance with Grindz.
