Post your coffee shots (pun intended)

Very cool - far better than my efforts!
 
That's a sweet looking coffee. Did you do the decoration? I recently got an espresso machine at home and would love to learn how to make those patterns.
 
nope, that was at a shop. which machine did you get? I got a gaggia classic pro :)

Latte art is hard. You really have to practice it often until you get the flow. I tend to stop and when I try to get back into it at a later time, I have to restart the process of figuring it out. And this machine is hard to steam, it's very inconsistence and you have to play around with it.

I have a very serious verbal agreement with my wife that if we ever separate, I keep the espresso machine.

For a few months I worked on tulips, ferns, hearts, etc, but now I just pour, wiggle, and hope something decent happens 🤪

I'm convinced latte art is something you need to be doing multiples times per day for months to be any good at it. I have maybe a 30% keeper rate with anything besides a basic heart. The other part is steaming the milk just right. Too much or not enough air and the artwork is a lost cause.

The entire process of making espresso alone is such a rabbit hole. I try not to obsess too much over the details and just enjoy the coffee...but it's easy to get sucked in.

Yes it is, I agree. I've not practice continuously and when I do get somewhere, I'd get lazy and take a break. When I come back to practicing.. I have to start over. And yes, even when the art fails, sitting down and sipping the cup is rewarding. until I gotta go clean up.. lol

This was from the other day

The other coffee is called Es Yen - A Thailand styled coffee which is a soft power brew beverage and made with a combination of espresso and condensed milk, resulting in a creamy indulgence that plays well with ingredients like fresh milk and locally sourced coconut sugar.
 
too right...a bit of shortbread with coffee from the moka pot is the way!
