I probably should have swirled the crema :) but it's the closest I've come to a shape so far :)

I am finding that the loveramics flat white and cappucino cups fill up before anything can be attempted...

I found exactly the same with the Loveramics cappa cups. Too shallow and wide, it all happens so quickly and the next thing you know you've got latte art on your fingers. The Acme equivalents are a bit more forgiving. To be fair though, I do suck at latte art, must up my game!

ACME's prove difficult to get unless you want 6 or a trip in to london. I bought some 400ml le creuset tulip-esque cups which are great for the bucket-o-latte, but i need something around 300 to fill the gap.

Yeah I know. I went to caravan kings x to pick mine up. PITA unless you're going there anyway.

Who likes bubbles?

 

I had to run and grab my phone from another room, but there were bubbles to begin with any way.

 

I think I put too much air in the milk.

 

Is there any way to practice this without using milk and coffee? Or atleast without using coffee?

 

Maybe I need to buy some cheap beans so I can just try over and over without worrying about wasting precious coffee haha. f1ccc61ccba6696a20c8813a83f5f631.jpg

I don't think there's any way to effectively practice without wasting coffee, buying cheap beans would be a good solution but milk would be wasted too. Can take quite a while to learn because of this, especially if you don't drink milk drinks.
