Someone free pour a Poirot moustache please! The best I can do looks at best like Sherlock Holmes pipe.

Practice. 2 - 3 cups a day with the DTP has given me a great start. Slow and steady has probably helped.

So I'm still practicing this swan thing and haven't quite gotten the hang of it - I always run out of space when I'm doing the head bit! ): any and all comments on technique, or lack thereof, gladly welcomed ◡̈

In other news, I have just picked up sourdough baking, and my goodness does it remind me of my early days of coffee making and milk steaming, slowly discovering the 1001 ways that anything can and will go wrong...

Day 127 espresso journey

 

Straight into a flat white this morning after a few days awayd788e996aaec6bdc4875e6071edbb042.jpg

 

Buoyed by my early morning success I thought I’d make another and film it this time. Probably shouldn’t have bothered - I’d obviously peaked early...

Probably the best tasting drink I've made on the Oscar so far. Design wise I'm not sure what happened. Ran out of milk though

This week I gambled on pausing my usual coffee subscriptions and supporting a small stall in Bath market... just to see.

 

They have been around for a long time but they don’t do deliveries and don’t exactly roast to order - it’s roast and sell out of big storage jars.

 

The other half chose Vietnamese fair trade, which is a bit darker than Pact. I really had to tighten the grinder to get there, but it’s okay. No redeeming features. I might go for a lighter roast next time.

 

The good news is that it is far better for pouring milk.

I know where I’m going wrong each time I steam milk, but struggle to rectify it!

 

Anyway, some progress is better than no progress. At least the coffee tasted amazing!
