Latte Art - All the Pieces of the Puzzle?
by Aaron De Lazzer

Learning to pour latte art is hard enough as it is without your espresso machine working against you.  Check out some Latte Art "Tips."

Great article, but I'm waiting for part two, where you talk about why these make a difference!

Would love to hear your comments on successful (or not)
experience with non-commercial machines & Latte Art. Do you
feel home machines like Silvia are up to the task? Will the stock  
steam tip work or do you need a mod?

I don't think that the Silvia is up to the task.  I would group all
single boiler home machines under this "Latte Art N/A" title.  
There just isn't enough steam pressure to drive the milk...at
least in ALL the home machines I have ever seen.  I anxiously
await to hear from someone that has consistently and
successfully poured latte art with their single boiler home
machine.  The prep. and priming etc. of this style machine is so
labourious that it might be easier to move to Seattle to get
latte art in your daily drink.  ;)

Hi Aaron!

Thank you for a most informative article! I recently upgraded to a Breville Barista Express BES860 (yes, also a single boiler machine), and have enjoyed the wonderful espresso this machine delivers.  My boys (12 and 13 yrs) and I have been going out of our minds trying to create Latte Art! We just can't seem to crack it.

Your epiphany with the steam tips really got me going! I'm quite handy with the lathe, and was wondering if trying to copy the steam tip in your picture would make it possible to steam the milk properly?

I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

Regards,

Mike
