    In a few months. The key for me was understanding the science and then trying to nail the variables like heat, air and texture.

    Just try to understand every element and keep practising each one.

    Good luck.
    I just want to drink that after seeing it - looks great!!

    Bitter irony (literally).
    You know how everyone posts bad latte art and says "but it tasted great"? (Guilty!) Well this time I'm doing the opposite. This 'ere pour probably counts as fairly good by my standards, but was a total hash except for the pour. Last few beans in the hopper so it came out too coarse, but I tried to compensate with a harder tamp. Then when I started the shot the machine ran out of water after 1 second. I refilled the machine with Volvic and restarted the shot. Got the worst spritzer ever, all over me and the floor! 18>48 in 20" -I thought to myself "that's a sink shot" but thought what the hell, I'll stick some milk in it and drink it. I'm not sure which part of the whole process deserves to go in the Muppetry thread, but as the pour was the only redeeming feature I thought I'd put it here. It didn't taste great, actually. But not as bad as it ought to have done - I was half expecting the milk to curdle given the inauspicious beginning.

    Thanks for the honesty i think that's what we all want to hear more of as we all experience the pain but we only see the good ones people want to show 😀

    Managed to get a heart shape on top, even moderately central but still lacking any definition. Milk is silky smooth. Any ideas?

    Espresso: Ceado E92 (modified for single dose); Vesuvius; VST baskets and refractometer.
    Other: Aeropress, Sowden and Alessi Moka Pot; Mazzer Robur doser with Auber timer; Mazzer Mini E; Expobar Leva Dual Boiler
