Hi guys, not been on here awhile but Im looking to update my 350ml pitcher as I've notice the spout is not inline with the handle, it was probable a cheep as it came with the setup.

 

Ive logged into amazon.co.uk and there's loads, so looking for some pointers as to a good one or make please.

 

I am looking to improve my latte art skills, whether that makes any difference to the choice.

Barista Hustle pitcher might be a good shout for you as they’re meant to be better aligned.

 

I’ve only used mine for half a dozen pours so far as I’ve been away, but been pretty impressed.

Look at some of the forum advertisers - HasBean always has a good, curated selection:

Espresso Gear pitchers are also a good shout.

I use a battered old Olympia one that's been knocked, bashed, dented and twisted to buggery and still manage to knock out the odd thing resembling art...

 

If you get to know how fluid flows from a spout and reacts to pouring techniques that's more important than any super aligned jug.

Are you saying that spending money on shiny stuff doesn’t improve the coffee? Bollocks!

 

But yeah, my pours with a BH pitcher are just as wonky as with misaligned Motta .

I have a couple of mottas 350ml. Looking for next level to get some better definition. Any recommendations or is the jug not really rate limiting?

I find I get more definition with a Joe Frex. Had to learn how to steam all over again due to the straighter walls but the tighter spout was a revelation.
