The wafer rolls provide an explosion of chocolate just before you counteract it with the rich taste of a freshly made cappuccino. Mmm… don’t forget to wipe that cream moustache from your upper lip!

    This is great composition, John!

  • Thanks Prasad. I like the cup and the wafers, but I think there is room for improvement some where. When I figure out exactly where I’ll try it again!

    So inviting!

  • Thanks Paul. We have had our new coffee machine for just over 6 months now and it tells me we have made 1083 cups of coffee!

    YOur comp is technically superb, John – the only thing that jars (and I really had to look for it) is that I’m intrigued to see the end of the spoon, which seems to have an interesting pattern…but I can’t spend any more time enjoying this image as I have to go and make some coffee NOW!!!!

  • Thank you Ann. I did crop the spoon, guilty, there is a hole at the end of it for hanging on a rack. The bit that jars me is the white tulip stem; it would have been better under the foliage of the red one. Still, I like the cup – must have another go sometime!
