Here's a nicer view of it, but it's a little bright. Try tilting your monitor back or looking up at the image from down low.

I've been trying something i conceive as being new (given I have not seen anywhere else). I have based it around my hero Luigi Lupi's style of the sideways swirl art (see video on http://gauperaa.blogspot.com/ ) Instead of waiting for the centre to develop I wiggle earlier then turn the pour to the centre to finish with a heart.  I have only tried this about 5 time now and all but one have been successful.  (one overfilled the cup and went everywhere).  This is not the best photo of one either but i will get the better ones off my friends digicam soon.

I'm liking other art besides rosettas at the moment, anyone doing anything else as well (either trying something "new" or doing tulip/hearts) as beautiful as rosettas are, i think there are a lot of them.  Practice makes perfect but too much practice breeds destruction, well not destruction but really you can only improve so much at a time.

Happy pouring
Scott

I've been feeling the same way about rosettas lately.  I haven't gotten any pictures worth posting yet, but I've been playing with 2 techniques in an attempt to produce different results...

  1. Stopping the pour altogether, rotating the cup, restarting pour.  

  2. REALLY getting a swirl going as I pour to fill the entire cup with a swirling rosetta, etc.

I'll make some attempts that are photo worthy tomorrow.

hey guys,

i'm feeling the same way about rossetta's. they're great but i feel it's getting to the stage now where latte art (free pours) need to go the next level. i've only been doing coffee for justover 3 years but now i'm trying anthything and everyhting now like milk etching, chocolate etching( up to 40 designs now) and have started pouring blindfolded a couple of days ago.

i remembered pouring 2 rossettas at once( a milk jug in each hand,2 seperate cups) so that's what i'm perfecting at the moment.

i've got some pics on our blog coffeeroastery.blogspot.com. check them out, it might give u some ideas.
cheers,

Should I be looking at a needle nosed frothing pitcher for latte art?  It seems it might give me better control.

i've never seen a needle nosed one; I think you just need one with a sort of sharp spout. it doesn't need to be at a bent angle, just thin. As long as you aren't using one of those bell pitchers with a lip instead of a spout, you should be fine.
