Rick,
  Thanks for the explanation. Makes much more sense now. Impressive looking machine too!  I'll have to try the organic milk sometime. Good point too about pouring in the middle of the cup. When I pour to close to the far edge I get turbulence that can mess up the rest of the pour.

Hi

I'm having some troubles to create latte art. I'v been succeed to create microfoam, but when I try to pour latter art the foam doesn't want to come out from the pitcher . Usually the foam comes out when almost all of the milk has been poured and that way can't anymore get any shape with it.
I'm using 1,5% milk. Any suggestions what I'm doing wrong?

After you have steamed your milk, do you let it sit in the pitcher? The foam and milk will separate quickly and when you pour the milk will go first with the foam coming out last.  If you have to wait for your shots to finish after you've steamed, keep swirling the milk in the pitcher to keep the foam and milk mixed.   Also, the lower in fat your milk is the quicker it will separate (that's been my experience).

I'll keep that in mind.
With last few times the foam wasn't good enough. It looked pretty good to me, but when poured the milk there wasn't any foam at all. Maybe I should try next time with non UHT milk.

From this evening...  wish the left side were more symmetrical with the right.  Had a little 'milk turbulence" that pushed the left side in.  Over all I'm pleased with the detail in the leaves.

Any advice for 6oz lattes?

My latest:

I feel like my pour is way too quick and maybe too much wrist action, advice?
