My curiosity led me to this topic as I always wonder how things are made. To me, the appreciation of things does not start from the final piece of work but at the start of the entire process of how is made. Is it the same for you?
When I am at the Coffee Bean or Starbucks outlets, I’m always trying to find a strategic location, set my binocular vision in order to catch a complete view of the artistry piece at work. Unfortunately, it is a futile mission most of the time. The barista will complete the drawing even before my sight lock down onto the target…hehe.. that was my pathetic experience. 😉
Here’s a brief introduction of what is latte art.
Latte art is a simple pleasure for the eyes.
Latte art is a method of preparing coffee created by pouring steamed milk into a shot of espresso and resulting in a pattern or design on the surface of the resulting latte. It can also be created or embellished by simply “drawing” in the top layer of foam.
Latte art is particularly difficult to create consistently, due to the demanding conditions required of both the espresso shot and milk. This, in turn, is limited by the experience of the barista and quality of the espresso machine. The pour itself, then, becomes the last challenge for the latte artist.

There are so many designs. Click here to appreciate the art.
There’s also another version called, the 3D latte art. Click here to view some of the designs.
Below is the how-to video for 3D latte art.
Last but not least, I found this video as per below that will give you ideas to DIY simple designs.
When it comes to getting hands-on with craft, the notable attributes that stick out like a saw thumb are a pair of steady arm and a patient soul. The level of energy channelled out must be precise – not too much and yet not too fast.
At the end of the day, the product will show your ability. This concept of working also applies to any form of intricate matters in life.
Anyway try them at home and have fun! Remember practice makes perfect. 🙂
