The great guide to latte art

Milk foam guide: How do I make latte art?

The Italian espresso coffee brewing method, which is still very common in Denmark, is largely to blame for the country's love of coffee. And it is from Italy that we have got the popular Cafe Latte, which can literally be translated as "milk coffee".

As the name suggests, it is a matter of making patterns with the milk in the coffee. Latte art is based on the fact that the golden brown crema in the espresso contrasts with the white milk foam, and therefore you can almost draw with the milk in the espresso. Latte art does nothing for the taste, but it makes the coffee look luxurious and exclusive. Latte art is created by pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso and then using a spoon to mix the two things together. The goal is to create a pattern in the coffee. The most common patterns are hearts, leaves and flowers.

To make latte art, start with a good espresso and good milk. The milk must be steamed so that it becomes frothy and creamy. To get the right consistency, it is important to use the right type of milk. For latte art, use whole milk with a high fat content. Low fat milk will not foam as well and will not keep its shape when poured.

A good rule of thumb is that the milk should be twice as large in volume once you have skimmed it properly. When pouring the milk into the espresso, hold the jug close to the surface of the coffee and pour slowly so that no bubbles form in the milk.

To make leaf patterns, use a spoon to hold the foam back, then pour the milk into a zigzag pattern until the cup is full. Then use a toothpick or spear to pull the espresso through the milk to create patterns.

To make heart-shaped patterns, start by pouring a small amount of milk into the espresso. Then use a spoon to hold some of the liquid while pouring more milk into the cup.
