Hi guys!

Managed a few more patterns. Saw some other posts where folks said the best approach is to name the design after the pour! So, meet "Heart-2-heart" and "Heart-balloon-on-a-string".

Pleased that the machine is delivering - but I need a LOT more practice!

Mike

The following two posts are just close-ups. Sorry if this is not the right forum.

Hi, HWP! Thanks for the kind words! I'm still new to this game, so I don't know what ACF is. Help me out here!

Pitcher is straight-walled SS, standard issue with the machine. Just using what I have.

Regards,

Mike

ACF is a company that produces I think porcelain cups that recently went out of business. I believe they were situated in Italy.

As far as your latte art goes, looking great! I think my machine is very capable of microfoam, but I think I'm just using too much milk.

Hi Guys!

Was playing with the Breville this morning, and this apple was the result!

Enjoy.

Mike
