perrys! goddamn son! i swear if that latte tastes HALF as good as it looks, I would probably die from the flavour explosion! (i'm not saying that it doesn't taste good...i've never had it. I bet it tastes BETTER than it looks, which is amazing).
I have a question for ya: I do rosettas, hearts, etc (usual latte art stuff) on a regular basis at work (besides the consumer drinks, I do probably 25 drinks per shift at least of practice). I wanted to ask you, how much foam are you pulling? To me, it looks like you're doing quite a bit more than I, or most of the people I see do for lattes (about a 20% increase in the milk volume in the pitcher). Also, does that cup help factor in the pour? I realized the other day the cups here might not be quite as "helpful" as yours, as the walls on your cup seem to be a more gentle slope.
