What’s the secret to creating great coffee latte art?

Pouring great latte art requires you to reverse engineer the process and understand the mechanics behind the design itself — Pouring Height, Positioning, Flow Rate and Control. There are three basic latte art designs: the Heart, Tulip, and Rosetta, each of which demands a different set of pouring techniques.

We would suggest first joining us for a Fundamental Barista Skills class at our Coffee Academy, then joining a Latte Art session to learn more. Sign up for our barista courses today and learn everything you need to begin your journey to becoming a coffee barista.

We recommend joining our Essential Coffee Knowledge and Fundamental Barista Skills classes.
