This morning I was pulling SO (Single Origin) shots of four very different regions - Ethiopia, Mexico, Java and Brazil. I was wondering if the camera could capture the different presentations of the crema head in the shot glass. It turns out I wasn't very scientific in my approach as the shot representation was more a function of my shot glass placement during the pull, rather than of the actual physical characteristics. An example would be these first two shots; the Java I gave a little swirl after the shot was pulled to see how the dense crema bubbles would respond and the Ethiopian Harar was placed off-center during the pull and created the bubbles at the rear of the shot glass. Not very scientific, I know. Best shot of the morning, suprisingly, the Harar - creamy berry goodness.
