Posted Wed Feb 23, 2005, 8:19pm Subject: Making a Rosetta
What a great forum first of all :)
Well I have been away from the game for a while but am itching to get back in after I purchased one of the best espressos I have ever drunk the other day. This has rekindled my interest in espresso and made me wonder why I ever left!!(It was the long hours and late nights, but I hated leaving because I love and live my coffee. One thing I dislike about office life is that instant coffee YUK leaves a disgusting taste in your mouth, also the lack of atmosphere associated with working in a Cafe. Designing Excel spreadsheets doesn't really float my boat quite like creating a perfect shot of espresso :)
Anyway I used to have quite a knack for pouring out heart and apple and Tomato shaped art into my coffees, but have recently been seeing this Rosetta pattern and am wondering how its pulled off?
I have seen a few pics of almost completed rosettas so I kind of know whats involved with wiggling the jug to make the leaves, but is there any MPEGs or AVI files floating around that anyone has some links to that I could have a look at?
If not is anyone here keen enough to record themselves making one of these patterns and posting it up on the net? I know that this would require quite a bit of effort.....but it is for a good cause ;)
I am passionate about my coffee and love meeting people who are equally as passionate. Thats what I love about these forums, it brings like minded espresso lovers together!!
