Mark you're becoming quite the latte artist :) I've been watching sammy's video in CG over and over to isolate his technique, but I guess there's nothing quite like being there! One day I'm goin to come to Canada ( and Seattle too ). I bet I'll learn more standing there, then I could after 10 hours of practice back home. Ohh I'm going to master latte art if it kills me :0
Rob: That is the best latte art I've seen you post, it is ever so delicate and perfect, and also one of my favorites. Congrats!!! I particularly like how clean and detailed the top of the rosette is.
Mark: Incredible detail in such a compact pkg. I still wish i bought the alien cups back when they were out for sale. Also, your camera and picture taking abilities has vastly improved lately (along with your latte art).
Dom: I'm sure your chances will be better when you upgrade, but silvia is a capable tool for latte art with plenty of practice.
Last but not least, since I've been talking about Sammy's work in this thread, and I don't have the time to get the images online this weekend like I originally wanted, here's one (of many!) examples of Sammy's work. I put him "under the gun" as it were, and made him perform under semi-difficult conditions (it was like he was in a Barista Competition, but he had to bend in various ways to allow me to get clean photographing lines of sight), yet almost everything he poured was as perfect as this... a one two punch (a normal double, with each shot going into a cappuccino cup, then a heart / rosetta freepour from the same pitcher).
Rob, What an amazing rosetta, beautiful work. And Mark... damn man, those machiattos look awesome, and I'm sure they tasted the same. Sammy's work is out of this world, as always. He really is the master in my book. Anyways, I'll post my rosetta from today, but it's nowhere near the caliber of stuff you guys have posted in this thread. Keep up the great work!
