Latte art or foam art is what happens when your skilled barista makes a picture or design out of the steamed milk that’s put in your coffee.
Here’s a vid of the art form in action.
If the artiste in you is aching to learn how it’s done, you can go to barista school. The American Barista and Coffee School (http://coffeeschool.org) will be happy to teach you everything you need to know about running a specialty coffee shop to become a premier barista. It is situated in Oregon, USA.
For Canadians who want to devote their lives to the art and artistry of coffee, the Canadian Barista & Coffee Academy (http://www.canadianbaristaacademy.com) offers workshops in the major cities across Canada. It also organizes the Canadian Barista Championships.
Q: What is the prettiest picture or design you’ve ever had in your latte?
Until Next Time,
May your coffee always be freshly brewed!
