Latte Art

I've never attempted latte art. It didn't come with my barrista training because most Americans want their latte as quickly as possible, and with whipped cream on top. But knowing what I do of the land of lattes and milk foam and seeing this video I'm fairly certain I could do just as well as this guy.

Funny how as consumers we expect coffee that takes longer to make to be something that we pay more for.

Now this second one is a shorter video but pretty damn sweet - as well as beyond my capabilities. That's some precise pour that guy's got, unless of course he makes up the creature as he goes.

Highly Recommended
