My first successful attempt at the Tulip!! Rosettas all day long, but the Tulip has escaped me for some time. I found if I tilt the cup and bring the espresso close to the edge of the cup I have a much better success rate. Totally different then the rosetta.

I used a 8oz take out cup as it was what we were sampling out at the 2013 CRFA show in Toronto and that's where the Tulip action took place.

I've also struggled with the tulip, but I think I just figured it out in the last few days.  Here's my best effort to date (Intelligentsia Black Cat, 6 oz. cup).  What I realized is that I wasn't doing enough to push the design toward the back of the cup as I poured, and therefore wasn't successfully opening up the lower leaves (and creating room for more at the top).  With the rosetta, you are pulling toward the front of the cup as you pour to create leaf separation; with the tulip, you are pushing toward the back.  Elementary, I suppose, but it took a while for that to click with me.

Well done! That's so cool - how long did it take you to learn? I'd love to serve after-dinner coffees like this to my friends. They'd be so impressed!
