At CoffeeGeek, many of our regular members and forum participants are regular maestros at the whole latte art thing. We put out a notice some months back asking for these latte art virtuosos to post their best examples of their work.

As you can see below, the skill levels are high. Some of the machines used are some of the cheapest espresso machines on the market today; others are full prosumer machines.

Enjoy this pictorial of some of our CG members' best work

Jim Schulman (CoffeeGeek Forums Modererator)

Jim has his hot and cold days when banging out latte art (as he says himself), but lately, he's been on a roll!

Tight macchiato
Macchiatos are often the most difficult latte art to pour.

A very delicate, full leaf rosetta.

Jim seems to have a nack for doing very slender leaf designs.

Bobby Ellis

Bobby recently got the hang of latte art, but he's been showing off some great examples of etching as well.

Etching
Etching is something that folks stymied by latte art can do - use a needle therm to drag patterns in the latte.
Etching, part 2
Etching can also be done with chocolate syrup, giving some interesting contrasts.
Rosetta
Wow - great, delicate, and beautifully formed.

Avi Zaks

Avi is another newcomer to latte art, but he sure is making up for lost time!

Avi pounds out the apple!
Heart
All of these were done on a budget consumer machine - not bad!

Robert Hall, MD

CoffeeGeek's resident "amateur" latte art super expert and Forums Doctor, Rob has been setting the standard on our website for what is possible in latte art. Maybe it's the steady hands...

Another well defined rosetta build by Chris

Another great rosetta. Darker flecks in crema come from chocolate powder.
