I'm not sure yet. I was on Rwandan before before Honduras and now I'm back again. Do you have anywhere to get a small bag to try?

Spend weeks trying. Give up. Realise that it's not as hard as it seems. Try again. Give up as it actually is that hard. Watch countless vids on hollow bloody hearts. Try again. Throw milk jug at wall. Clean up mess. Try again. Throw cup at wall. Clean up mess. Try again. Throw espresso machine at wall. Purchase new machine. Realise that zen is key. Try again. Sell soul to Satan. Try again. Receive soul from Satan as it's not worth his hassle. Try again. Fail. Try again.

A little bit on the small side.

Well, at least it was on the right day. I think I need to really concentrate on it rather than see what happens every time I fancy a coffee. ...c61eeea20c352ea56b9f4319337823f8.jpg

Looks good regardless, and nicely lined up with the handle (something I have to try and reverse as a leftie)

 

I think if you are left handed it's fair enough to have the handle as you'd want it. All that matters is that it's aligned one way or the other rather than randomly because it wasn't considered! Left handed latte art is still art

Yeah this. Just align it either way for you. Unless you're serving in a commercial environment where it's 80% likely that you'll be serving to a right-hander, so always handle on the right.

I'm trying to learn both ways as I'm the only leftie in the house.

In reality it doesn't make that much difference when my pours are suitably wobbly anyway!

Got the wife to record today's effort, which is usually a recipe for disaster. This turned out ok though! I'll get her to turn the camera round next time :D

Nice one Anton! I'm on the tulips also, hard to do a good rosette. What does your wife think about filming you pouring? Mine had a wry smile on her face lol.

To be honest Mrs anton is very good. She had realised that every time I've spent a stupid amount of money, the quality of her morning coffee has improved. Filming is just part of the good coffee tax.

Try the normal Oatly if you want a real challenge (which happens regularly as I can only find the 'barista' Oatly in Waitrose)!
