I’d been thinking about finding an affordable way to improve my home gear to make better coffee. For me, ‘affordable’ would not mean splashing out north of $1,700 for a Rocket Appartamento, even if it’s gorgeous and Gail from Seattle Coffee and my buddy Dillon each have one.
I was browsing through the Fellow Products website with that idea in the back of my mind when I came across the Eddie pitcher. Hmm, maybe it wouldn’t make a big difference in taste, but it would be nice to up my milk art game. Also very convenient to have a bigger pitcher than my stock Breville, for those times I make two or three coffees at a time for me and the fam.
….. is having the chance to improve on making milk art (getting to hang out with your dog is pretty sweet, too). Because I know you’re all out there yelling “MOAR COFFEE PICS!!!!”, here’s today’s effort. Not great, but decent for a small glass with a quad shot.
We had some family and friends over for brunch yesterday. Beautiful day, which allowed us to sit outside. The espresso machine got quite the workout, as I ended up making about a dozen drinks in a relatively short period of time. By the end it was putting out pure crema. Here’s one of my earlier efforts, I managed to get some milk art into a smaller glass for a macchiato.
This morning my barista poured the milk by turning the pitcher to its side and just letting it go, no delicate use of the spout. The last kerplunk was foam. This off-handed ‘effort’ still looks more interesting than any of my milk art failures. Rat? Jellyfish? Marge Simpson’s head on a cat’s body?
