Thanks! It was certainly a hell of a challenge to memorize where everything needs to go and when but being able to do them consistently makes for a lovely parlor trick :)

I texture the milk using the steam from the espresso machine and sink a portion of it through and beneath the espresso to raise it up in the cup enough to start pushing designs onto the surface of the shot :)

I agree, the individual parts of the feathers are just a touch too rounded in this one, I'll have to mess with my speed at that point in the pour and see if I can make some sharper lookin' wings in the big cups :) Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you :) The intricacy is my favorite part of this pour, the wings come in before the body so to get them formed properly you have to spin the coffee clockwise and counter-clockwise accordingly, it's a really fun design to put together :D

Let some air into the milk using the steam from the espresso machine, create a vortex in the pitcher to texture and heat it properly, then sink it through and beneath the shot of espresso until the liquid has risen enough in the cup to push the microfoam onto the surface of the coffee and make pretty shapes :)

No luck today, think I'm gonna have to get the dragon down consistently before I'm able to get a decent shot of whatever I come up with but when I get there I'll definitely let you know :)
