So when I pour into my shot the crema immediately breaks but once I have added a good volume of milk I can pour a good rosseta but the definition is not great as the crema has mostly dissipated. I don't think it is the shot because when I drink it straight it is delicious and the crema is thick. Am not adding enough air to the milk ? or is it something else.

A video of what you are doing might help, but it could be that when you are initially pouring the milk from the jug, you are pouring too fast, or from too high a distance from the cup, thus causing enough force to break apart the crema. Try making sure that when you first introduce the milk into the cup, you make sure that initial milk goes 'gently' into the cup. Then, once you establish the entry point, you can sort of speed up the flow a little until you are ready to bring the jug down low to begin the design. Good luck!

The guys at Verve are really on the ball, I get 90% of my coffee from them, I have it mailed every two weeks to me. I get it 2 days after roasting. Yes they make it look easy, I'm waiting for them to set up shop here in LA.
