How to create latte art: the heart
The Barista Touch™ puts the power to create delicious third wave coffee right at your fingertips. Not only will you enjoy nuanced flavor, you will also be able to create latte art like a pro! Listen to a professional barista explain the three things needed to make any form of latte art—expertly extracted espresso, perfectly textured microfoam milk, and plenty of practice. Learning to create a microfoam milk heart begins with forming 'The Dot;’ so follow along as our barista demonstrates how to turn the dot into a heart. Hold the coffee cup at an angle, increasing the surface area of the coffee. Next, begin pouring the microfoam from several inches above the coffee. Pour a steady stream into the center of the cup, slowly tilting the cup upright as you pour. Move the milk jug close until it nearly touches the coffee as you continue pouring. You’ll see the dot begin to form. When the cup is almost full, pour the last of the milk through the dot to the cup's rim, and lift the jug to finish. Congratulations on creating your first heart! With lots of delicious practice, you’ll soon impress your friends and family.
