It's the Square Mile Kenyan Ngararinga. It's absolutely gorgeous. Jam and more bubbling jam!

I have no idea haha. There's a YouTube clip that's pretty good. Search hollow heart latte art and it's 17 seconds long I think. Pure magic lol

[ATTACH=CONFIG]28889[/ATTACH]

 

Aw yeah it's getting it to sink at the end... I'm not sure how or what I'm doing at that point. Looks great though. Did you find that YouTube vid I mentioned?

@joey24dirt yeah I saw it, it's quite a tricky little one! Have your dark arts beans arrived yet? I've still got no idea what those are.

No not yet. I think they are just a darker roasted bean. I think the idea is we don't know anything about them so then we can discuss different flavours, which im totally useless at. I'll either like them or not haha

Haha I wish, no it's my first attempt that's been semi decent not my first attempt overall :p

 

Quite a few months of struggling until this point!

Practice makes perfect... although the same can't be said for latte art I've found haha. Some days you've got it and some days you don't. They key is to always enjoy it

Ha! That's my motto. If it comes out better than expected, post it. If not, drink it before anyone notices. Either way you get a nice cup of coffee so it's win-win (unless you're in the latte art comp, which I've never dared enter even when Glenn put a prize up!)

I`m loving this thread.

 

The weekend still days away, I can't wait that long, Wednesday free pour...

 

Coffee roasting? That I can do. Latte art skills? I`m not too sure... A picture paints a thousand words
