Did you know that coffee can be artistic, too? follow me as I introduce you to one of the best aspects about coffee; the latte art making.
What is Latte Art?
Latte art is a method of preparing coffee created by pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso and resulting in a pattern or design on the surface of the latte. It can also be created or embellished by simply "drawing" in the top layer of foam. Latte art is particularly difficult to create consistently, due to the demanding conditions required of both the espresso shot and milk. This, in turn, is limited by the experience of the barista and quality of the espresso machine. The pour itself, then, becomes the last challenge for the latte artist.
The Essential 3 steps to make latte art:
Basically, you need the perfect foam to make latter art, if you steam the milk at the perfect temperature you will have a good start to the process.
