In this guide you will learn how to make a latte art heart. So get ready to pour some love!
The latte art heart is a basic coffee design that forms the foundations for many advanced latte art techniques. Luckily, it’s a very easy design to learn and it always impresses customers and friends that receive it in their cup.
How To Latte Art Heart
Below is my step-by-step guide on how to pour a coffee art heart. Make sure to also refer to my video above to follow along with the steps.
1. Rest The Spout
Rest the spout of your jug against your cup and then rock the jug side-to-side at a constant pace until an circle or apple shape starts to form. Try to introduce the milk into the center of the cup while holding it on a slight tilt – I find this helps a bit.
2. Lift and Suck The Milk Down
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 curve
3. Follow Through
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.
