Latte art is not the easiest thing to do, yet once you master it, it can become very satisfying. It requires practice and patience, but it is easier than some try to make it look. The most crucial point for latte art is the quality of your steamed milk. If you need help stretching the milk properly, watch this video on how to steam milk.
Start with simple designs, like a heart, and don’t get disheartened if they don’t look good at the beginning… You will mix the milk with the coffee at some point anyway. If you want to prepare a cappuccino without the design, stretch your milk a little longer, allowing bigger bubbles to form, creating slightly less sweet milk with thicker foam.
