Latte Art Process

(1) Rest the spout of your jug against your cup and then rock the jug side-to-side at a constant pase until an circle or apple shape starts to form. Seek to introduce the milk into the center of the cup while holding it on a slight tilt – I find this helps a bit.

(2) When your circle has formed, pull your jug directly up to create a thin steady stream of milk. This will create a suction that will arch the top of the circle in order to create the love heart curves.

(3) When the cup is almost full, keep the flow of milk steady and then follow-through the milk from one side of the cup to the other to create your coffee art heart. And you’re all done! Super simple wasn’t it?

Side note: In the video I did a double heart. Where I made one circle then another within it. You can make a heart like this too. However, begin with the basic one of making a single heart with just one circle.
