In this guide you will learn how to make rosetta latte art (also known as the fern).
The rosetta is one of the two fundamental latte art designs all baristas must learn before moving onto more complicated techniques (the other being the heart). It is also one one of the prettiest -- a perfectly symmetrical rosetta is striking.
Once you master the rosetta you will be well on your way to becoming a latte art expert as it makes up many advanced latte art techniques.
How To Pour A Latte Art Rosetta
Below is my step-by-step guide on how to pour a coffee art rosetta. Make sure to also check out the video above of me pouring a rosetta. Now get practicing!
1. Create the Cloud
Rest the spout of your jug against your cup. Next let the milk flow in and move your jug to the opposite side of the cup and start shaking side-to-side at a consistent pace until a white cloud starts to appear.
2. Shake and Back
When this cloud appears, continue shaking your jug side-to-side at a consistent pace and start steadily moving your jug back towards you. Make sure that the spout of your jug is resting on the cup as this as it gives you more control.
3. Smaller Shakes
The closer you come to the end of the cup make your shakes smaller and smaller until you start to form a little ball/heart shape.
4. Lift and Swipe
Once you have no more room and your cup is almost full. Pull your jug up to create a thin steady stream of milk and follow through the middle of the waves to create your rosetta. And you’re done! A Super simple yet elegant coffee design.
