Casting In Latte: Don't Rush

It might be a stretch to say that pouring delicate designs in the foam of a latte cup will help you become a better caster, but latte artist and fly fisher David Schomer draws several similarities between mastering nano-bubble milk spirals and his other passion. “When pouring latte art there is a mimicking of this process swinging the pitcher side to side, waiting for the milk to ‘load’ up in the side of the pitcher before changing direction and swinging it to the other side. Typically new people oscillate the pitcher back and forth too quickly, trying to rush the process. The side to side motion needs to be more rhythmical, almost lazy, much like the casting of a fly line.” On CoffeeGeek.com.
