You might find that, once you've nailed the perfect brew, you want to experiment with latte art. In this video, Professional Barista Leo Schmidt demonstrates the basics of latte art using perfectly textured milk. As Schmidt explains, latte art requires three basics: microfoam milk, expertly extracted espresso, and plenty of practice. Watch as she demonstrates how to use the steam wand to create 260 degree F pressure for the perfectly textured microfoam necessary to make latte art. Next, learn the perfect milk pour and espresso angle for best results, as well as how to create 'The Dot' in your cup. The Dot will be a starting point for many latte art designs, like The Rosetta, Tulip, and Heart. Once you’ve mastered the basics of texturing milk, pouring like a pro, and creating a dot, you are ready to step up your game. Dream big!
