A slightly absurd latte art challenge

The challenge is simple – pour latte art in something unusual and post a link in the comments or use trackback.

I’ve been thinking about this for a little while and was inspired by a few amusing pours like these:

If enough people get into it then maybe there will be some sort of pointless prize suiting the silliness of this. I challenge you – pour somewhere stupid!

UPDATE: A rather excellent first offering from Tim Styles in the comments.

  1. I’m in! I just wish I were creative enough to find something “strange” to pour into. Not many non-beverage containers around here.

  2. This is one of those all-so-rare times when one wishes one had a glass eye to pop out of its socket…
    … or would the milk leak into your brain?

  3. You have my sick little brain, along with many others I suspect, contemplating the pleasure/pain aspect of this challenge. I wonder if anyone would be up for a volcano pour (directly in the mouth!)

    Leave it with me, I can be very persuasive…

  4. That sounds hot and very wrong for all of the wrong reasons miss coffee fairy.

  5. Ahh! I was thinking about this the other day, just after I’d poured a rosetta into a saucer.

  6. I put the challenge to the guys at Ninth St Espresso (NYC) today, and only have the results in video format. I’ll get them up onto YouTube, and post links.

  7. Nice one! I can’t believe this topics come up, at the only point in my life where I have no immediate access to a machine.

  8. Hello there, James! I managed this rather shoddy rosetta in a 4.5oz metal scoop. Not much to brag about, but this challenge is much harder than I’d expected.

  9. A few of us here at murky coffee tried pouring into each other’s hands today. It was apretty dismal failure at first, but by the end we started to see the makings of some rosettas! We’re trying to become experts now, and hope to someday send you pictures :)
