There really ought to be a separate area in the forums for latte art.  Would creating said area have a negative effect on the site?  

For the many newbies searching for info, I assume a separate area would make information gathering significantly easier, additionally, it would allow those searching for espresso-specific info, a lot, lot easier.  

I ask you then, why not?  *pleeeeeease?*

Here's the first thing I cranked out this morning (at 7:50 am). The guy who does the cleaning in the building I work is doing his thing around the coffee bar while I'm setting up shop, so he gets his latte after I've got the grinder set up :)

This last week I've gotten very consistent and can get a rosetta in basically 9/10 drinks (counting cappas, lattes and mochas). This was in a tall takeaway cup.

Excuse the quality, it's my camera phone :)

It looks like a drawn together bag of sorts :)

This is from my morning cappuccino on monday (it was delicious!)

Today was kind of an off day. I only made about 10 really nice ones (and one superb).

Chris,

Very nice!  The milk we have in the Midwest is kinda watery lately, but I managed to get one decent rosetta yesterday, which I'll try to post it later.  I guess the cows aren't happy with the season changing.  Happy cows = latte happy art.   Depressed cows = latte crappy art...  : (

Robin,

Nice recovery! Is that a Bodum espresso cup?

Cheers,

Steve
