Latte art consists of small works of art in coffee cups and has to be learnt. To present the perfect coffee, you need frothy milk with the right consistency, a good pouring technique and the appropriate coffee cup.
In addition to the right technique, it also comes down to the accessories and lots of practice. The most important basis for latte art is the consistency of the frothy milk.
How to make the perfect frothy milk: The milk should be cold before it is frothed up and should not get hotter than 60-70 °C during the frothing process. Remove the condensed water by releasing it through the steam valve and then dip the milk nozzle into the pot. Now turn on the steam and keep it just below the milk surface.
As soon as the milk temperature in the pot has reached about 40 °C, you switch from the pulling phase to the rolling phase. This removes the larger air bubbles in the milk. To do so, immerse the nozzle deep into the milk until the milk rotates around the jug.
The perfect frothy milk now just has to make it to the cup. A milk jug with a pointed spout is perfect for pouring. Place the jug on the rim of the cup and pour in the milk with a fine, continuous flow. You can start drawing as soon as the milk rises back to the surface of the coffee.
To make sure you have enough space for great latte art, the coffee cup should have a wider diameter. Heat the cups beforehand so that they stay warm for longer and you can enjoy the work of art in peace before drinking it.
There are a number of ways to make coffee: with an automatic coffee machine, espresso machine, filter cone, etc. A coffee grinder and milk frother make the perfect coffee experience even more delicious.
