What is latte art?

Latte Art

One of the barista's most impressive skills is the ability to create latte art. This kind of decoration offers enormous scope for creativity, the only limit being your imagination.

Exciting new coffee drinks are appearing on coffee bar menus all the time, and this creative trend has also given rise to ever more artistic decorations on the classic cappuccino.

Originally, latte art consisted of skilfully pouring milk foam over an espresso to create a design with the brown crema and the white foam. The first motifs used were the heart and the rosetta. Later came the technique of creating decorative patterns with chocolate sauce. This technique is easy to try at home.

A cappuccino with light, velvety foam can be prepared at the touch of a button with a JURA coffee machine. Then all you need is liquid chocolate sauce, a squeezy bottle and a wooden skewer.
