Hi Chris,

Attached is a pic of latte art here at Desert Rain. Just an update after having been open for 8 months here at the Northwest Medical center in Oro Valley. Things are going well and we are competing with big green Starbucks down the street!

We are open Mon-Fri 7am-3pm. closed Sat and open Sun. 8am-12pm. If anyone is coming down from the Phoenix area on a Saturday, I can meet them at my shop and they can try out my La Victoria lever machine! Call me at 520-297-0246 after 4 pm. Thanks!!!

  1. I’m wondering if Arizona latte art should look more cactus-like. I think I could swing it…
    By the way, nice steaming John!
