Hi everyone,

I got an espresso/cappucino machine about a month ago, and have been quietly lurking these forums for a while. I already had a Capresso Infinity grinder and a Bunn VPR to make awesome drip coffee, and when my sister-in-law asked me about lattes I quickly craigslisted a used Saeco Aroma to play with, modified it to an unpressurized portafilter, and was originally going to give it to her once I figured out how to get decent lattes. Well, I got hooked and bought a used Starbucks Barista as well and did the same depressurized portafilter mod. She gets to choose one to keep lol

I've gotten many tips from all the users here (thank you for sharing!!), which has helped me improve my shots, foaming, and I have finally gotten to the point where I'm getting reasonable latte art. I thought I'd contribute something interesting that I photographed today: the deterioration of latte art/foam when left sitting. Most mornings I make a latte for my wife before heading to work, and now I see how it quickly changes after I've left for work. Oh well, I least I try!
