The first picture looks the best of any you've posted by far. Texture looks fantastic, as well. I have not made any coffee yet today - time to warm up the machine :)

Some constructive feedback,  so please don't take this the wrong way.

Your rosettas are so-so.  Too much haloing, not enough definition and contrast.  The one pour that has negative space is more interesting,  although it has too much of it.

Also all the our pours are rather anemic. You need a positive facing surface. That means a convex profile on the crema with a luscious bead of crema hugging the lip of the cup with surface tension . This gives the drink a decadent, inviting, must-drink-now appeal that coats the upper lip.

On the positive side,  I would gladly drink any of them. They are by all means not bad at all.

I didn't answer cuz i was away from town for week and after a week break of making coffe i had some new pictures but not to many. Thanks for advice and others opinion  , here's a picture number one  and there was  a lot of  answer about espresso machiatto and here's a picture of it on the right Hope to  hearing from you soon .

Really lovely coffee there in the first picture. I think you can see the improvements in the espresso alone.


Something I will say is that the foam looks quite dry in a few of your pictures; remember never to compromise on the quality of the milk for the patterns. If you're finding the milk is going like that even when your texturing is perfect, check the cups themselves. Sometimes if they haven't sat on the coffee machine long enough they'll be cold, meaning you lose control of the espresso temperature. You can shoot a bit of steam into the cups or run them under the hot water to keep them warm - it might help you maintain the crema better.


With regards to the macchiato debate above...  it means stained, and traditionally it's very dry milk dollopped on top with a tea spoon or side poured for more advanced baristas. The premise is that the milk is going to tip as you drink the espresso and negate the bitter taste hitting the back of your tongue where you're most sensitive to it.


But you can decorate that milk with a needle/ etch if you wish. A simple smiley face with even a tea spoon isn't hard to do. The modern market for coffee demands presentation over mechanical function in the cup.

These are really good, I've tried doing some but I'm terrible! Not the greatest in the art department

Very nice. I would recommend starting your design a touch earlier, and focus less on the back and forth "wigggles". Slow the motions and I think that could help you substantially.
