How To Pour A Latte Art Tulip

 Last Updated June 7, 2024

In this guide you will learn how to pour a latte art tulip. If you know how to pour a heart, the tulip is pretty straight forward. As it is just a series of hearts poured on top of each other.

The same motion goes in creating a tulip as a heart, except we layer each one on top of the other.

How To Pour A Latte Art Tulip

1. Pour The First Semi-Circle

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. Pour Semi-Circle Within The First One

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 Step 2 Till Full

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

4. Follow Through And Complete Design

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.
