Attempts at Rosettas 1


We finally bought a stainless steel jug to froth milk on the weekend. This is one of my first coffees with milk frothed in it. How nice is that microfoam? It is so much easierand quicker to froth the milk, let alone pouring. I think I need to go practise, I will post more photos as my technique hopefully improves.

That looks great, Clare. The closest I've ever gotten is making a rather ugly heart, and that was when I worked in a coffee shop and made drinks all day.

Hi Cara

My Homeroasted coffee does taste very good! I can't wait til I can make the coffee look really pretty!

Hi Stephanie
How about a hot chocolate then?

Hi Nic
Thanks, I think I still have a long way to go, but the texture is much better than the heart up the top! I thought it might be nice to chronicle my *hopeful* improvements :)

Hi Clare, im sure of it that in no time you will have figured out how to make an exact likeness of Kiri in your cup. It will be scary, but cool :)

Well, if you're doing an all-about-coffee post, we need one for tea as well, please. It's only fair. :)

That looks great!! I usually end up making hearts of weird patterns and once I tried making smileys because we were bored ;)

Hey clare,
I do have an espresso machine, but I never use it (hides head in shame). It has the frothing spout, but I can't use it to make cool designs like this one, right?

Hi Kritsti

Stay tuned I am planning a coffee serial extravaganza ;)
What sort of machine and grinder do you have?
What sort of coffee do you buy?
