Latte Art

by: Rich Hauck

The other week I took a class in latte art at Little Amps Coffee in downtown Harrisburg. Considering how much coffee I drink, I figured why not learn how it’s done?

The class consisted of roughly 10 students being taught how to execute hearts and tulip-shaped patterns by two experienced baristas. It cost $20, but was well worth it (I went solo, but could see it making for a good date night). In addition to learning, we were permitted to drink our attempts, and each of us left with a small bag of roasted beans.

My feeble attempts documented, below.

First attempt.

Second attempt. At least I have the contrast going for me.

Learning to center…

Throwdown mode (mine’s on the right).

Last attempt of the night.
