Latte Art Process

(1) Begin by tilting your cup on an angle. Then introduce the milk on the side of the cup.

(2) Give the spout a quick nudge forward and then start shaking the jug side-to-side like you would when creating a rosetta. However, the goal here is to get the waves to roll around the side of the cup. You want to make the crema spin with the milk.

(3) Once the waves have reached the bottom of the cup stop pouring and then bring your jug back to the top of the cup.

(4) Here you will do the exact same steps as when creating a tulip. However, You are aiming to make the tulip within the waves just created.

(5) Create small circles — one within each other — as many as you can do, before pulling your jug up to make a steady stream of milk, and then following through the circles to create the tulip. Your latte art wave tulip is complete. Examine the tulip page for more detail on how to create the tulip coffee art.
