HOW TO CREATE WORKS OF ART FROM MILK FOAM

The basis is an espresso with a dense crema, under which the coffee stays hot longer. You can achieve particularly good results with an espresso machine. For the production of milk foam, it is best to use a larger milk jug, as the milk foam is easier to achieve with a larger capacity of the jug. Feel free to check out our tutorial for the perfect milk foam to become a specialist in this field. Once you have made creamy milk foam, it is important to transport it under the crema when pouring. Decisive for perfect latte art are:
- Consistency of the crema
- Temperature and consistency of the milk foam
- Type and speed of pouring
- Flow generated when the milk enters the machine
