How to create latte art
Complete your perfect cup of third wave specialty coffee with flawless, velvety textured milk for delicious taste with that perfect mouthfeel. And, while you’re at it, why not try your hand at creating your own barista-style latte art? Impress your neighbors and friends, and have fun treating your coffee like the art form it is. Join professional barista Leo Schmidt as she explains how to create frothy microfoam milk. Then, discover the first steps toward forming a milk foam Heart, Tulip, or Rosetta. Fill the milk jug with fresh cold milk and insert the steam wand. You’ll need powerful steam pressure at 260 degrees F to form the ideal silky microfoam. The high-pressure stem infuses the milk with thousands of tiny bubbles, which combines with the espresso to deliver beautifully balanced flavor and mouthfeel. Microfoam art depends on three factors: well-extracted espresso, microfoam textured milk, and a lot of practice. The Barista Touch™ handles the first two. You just need to bring the practice.
