"Make do with what you have". I'm sure someone famous said that once.

So I don't have a frothing pitcher. I don't have a tamper even! But I can still have some tasty and nice looking macchiatos. Here's two this morning, thanks to a mod'ed soup can - a short and stubby one that held premade tomato soup, "ready to serve". It went down the drain. :)

Sorry for the picture quality. I only have my cell phone camera here with me.

I'd like to toss out a challenge - let's see your example of soup can latte art or macchiato art. :)

You're always pushing the boundaries Mark :) What are you using for a tamper, a salt and pepper shaker?

Looking good!

I was on a training a while ago, and the customer wanted me to show him some latte art. The only pitchers we had were the bell shaped cappuccino pitchers. So I scrounged around and found a 2 cup metal measuring cup. it had a VERY small spout...It might as well have not been there. Anyway, I managed to steam some milk without spilling any and pour a wonderful rosetta with the measuring cup. I surprised myself and the customer. I wish I had a picture.

Hi,

  Here is my second attempt at latte art out of a can.  I used a 14 oz. pineapple can and had good results.  It was a pull off lid so I had to crimp the spout area so as not to hold up the milk flow.

Steve-o,

Nice soup-can latte art!  I hope when I pay a visit to your cafe, you will be using the regular steam pitcher, and not this Dole crushed pineapple can. : )

Thanks Steve,

I like to break the cans out for only my most prefered cutomers!  We rinse every can out for each drink and only use the best aluminum!  We like to keep the label on for looks until it falls off after several rinses.  I like to use the little cans you buy green chili's in for demitasse cups.  I think I'm getting carried away.  I have one waiting for your visit.  See you then!!

Wow latt3rt.... impressive!

okay.. I have to raise the bar now...

For the next challenge, we'll have to see who can pour latte art using the weirdest pitcher substitute..

I'm going to either try a pringles can,  or a shoe..


C'mon people.. experiment...  who knows, we might come up with a new texture, or pattern..... or flavour..(thinks of shoe)...

Hey Steve-O.....

I'll be looking forward to a macchiato soon....   As a challenge, I think I'll bring along a sardine can!
