Latte Art Tulip

Think of the latte art tulip like a series of hearts on top of each other. The same motion goes in creating a tulip as a heart, except we are layering them on top of each other in order to create the coffee art.

Latte Art Process

(1) Rest the jug on the side of the cup facing you and start the pour. Rock the jug side-to-side at a steady motion while moving the jug to the opposite side of the cup. Stop pouring when a semi-circle forms on the opposite side of the cup and lift your jug.

(2) Rest the jug on the cup again on your side of the cup and repeat the process in step 1. However, this time form the semi-circle within the one you already created. Then stop pouring and lift your jug.

(3) Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your cup is almost full.

(4) Finally, make your last semi circle, but instead of stopping the pour, lift the jug vertically (like you would to complete a heart) to create a thin steady stream of milk and follow the jug through to one side of the cup to the other. This will create a suction that will compete the coffee design.
