I dare you to show that to your work mates Joey :-)

 

Haha I will. I've got contractors with me tomorrow who don't know me that well, so it should freak them out plenty

Free pour face swap yo!

 

Is that what's known as a mug shot ?

Either way Joey, foaming at the mouth is not a good look !!

Day 2 Espresso Journey

 

26515d48f2e429c3abd3dbc03e8f115a.jpg

 

It’s only taken me an hour, half a bag of coffee, a pint of milk, RSI due to hand grinding and 5 cups thrown away as undrinkable...and it looks more like a toddler’s finger painting than latte art...

First time I’ve poured anything that resembles a pattern without overfilling the cup and ruining it...

 

It’s only taken me 3 years of practicing.

That looks lovely.

 

Very early days for me. A month or so in and I think I have the right notes, just not necessarily in the right order...

Never seem to get any length in my rosettas, tips?

That looks good though. Finer foam, slower pour, pull back as you wiggle.

For over three years now I’ve been struggling with texturing milk consistently. It’s either too thick, too thin, and the times I get it just right, I start my wiggle too late that I end up over filling the cup and lose the pattern completely.

 

So today I was in my local supermarket picking up some bread and milk for my stepchildren’s breakfast and they were completely out of skimmed milk, in fact, they didn’t have much milk in at all. I didn’t have time to travel to another shop so I ended up picking up the only carton of milk they had to offer, blue top whole milk. I’ve never tried it before, we have only ever bought skimmed.

I’ve just steamed my first pitcher of whole milk and my oh my, how easy. I had a perfect glossy finish on my first try. No big bubbles or water like consistency, I can only describe it as wet paint.

Better still, I started pouring and I had art forming before I the cup was half way full.

 

So here you go, my first ever flat white using whole milk.

 

Needless to say, I am rather chuffed with myself. Albeit, it’s no where near as good as most of the art on this thread.

Excellent news. Yeah it's all about fat content I think. You'll be flying with it now

Oh I hope so, I’m looking forward to getting home from work in the morning. I’ll be having hours and hours of enjoyment pulling shot after shot. My 1kg a week habit may increase tenfold.

Haha it definitely will. Expensive practice that's for sure.

 

It will be nice to see progression photos too if you remember.

 

Normally when I nail it I get so giddy I knock it over or spill it

I’ll be sure to post some photos as I progress.

 

I’m normally heard shouting “Yes, yes, YES!”... (as pattern is forming)

...

“BALLS!” (This is at the time where I end up with a huge spillage all over my hands and countertop and turn around to find the other half with her head in her hands giggling away knowing exactly what I’ve done).
