Never mind the cups, do we need one of these?!
Nah, had one once about ten years ago. Totally pointless... Unless you sit with your coffee at your elbow and never touch it... Anyway haven't you got a fancy keep it warm cup thing now?

Did someone say coffee?

What's the difference between these and the ones you can pick up on Amazon for £15 or so?
One of them has been priced for the tourist market.

Is that 56.90 Euro or SEK? No cup is worth 57 euro unless made from precious metals!

The stars aligned this morning

 

I always thought it was the shape of the cup that encouraged star alignment....but apparently I just suck and doing milk stuff :)

 

Love that mazza though, I need to do that doserless mod, and out of interest, what dosing funnel is that ?

The dosing funnel came from Ebay.....

It's pretty much spot on size wise so a little bit of fettling will make it fit.

Day 43 Espresso Journey

This may be the best thing that’s ever happened to me lol

 

When I realised I was actually going to get a heart I started panicking but just about held it together...quite an adrenaline rush

I've definitely concluded that some beans are better than others for latte art! Using Antigua and Sumatran beans just gives too thick a crema for the milk to push through - these Honduras Santa Rosa beans produce a lovely espresso but the crema breaks nice and quickly.

My milk skills were all over the place recently, so quite chuffed to have something half decent again.

I had a sip just as my little lad brought me a cake over. Thought it rude not to take a photo of his baking skills

Would you like to give me some one-on-one training? :rolleyes::p

Staffordshire is a bit far to go, although my family tree shows we did originate around there.

 

I suppose there's the option of FaceTime and things like that. I'm certainly no expert though, I keep my failures to myself

I was going to call this splodge 2.1, but i feel a more artistic name would be 'heart of the apple' :)

 

What size cups do you use for latte art? I am finding that the loveramics flat white and cappucino cups fill up before anything can be attempted....of course it could also just be that i suck :)
