14 Exemples Of How Milk And Coffee Can Become An Amazing Artwork


If you like art, creativity and coffee, you are in the best place today. This article will talk about the amazing latte art and will show you 14 stunning designs only the best baristas can create. True pieces of art (unfortunately only temporary -Ed.).

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.
