Hey Johan, some baristas make it so easy to pour coffee in a way that creates beautiful latte art but there’s a lot behind it and it’s definitely harder than it looks. The most common mistake people make when trying to pour coffee like a barista is ignoring the milk-texturing part of the process. The truth is that this is even more important than the pour itself. You cannot pour latte art with poorly textured milk, no matter how hard you try! I would recommend you to watch some online video tutorials on how to properly steam milk. For this, you’ll also need an espresso machine with a good-quality steam wand as well as chilled fresh milk. Only after you’ve mastered the steaming technique and you have silky milk with microfoam without big bubbles, you can start creating latte art in your coffee. Start with a love heart, this one is the easiest, in my opinion. And don’t give up! The only way to improve your latte art skills is by practice. Good luck!

What is the difference between an espresso macchiato, a latte and a cappuccino? I believe it has something to do with the amount of milk that goes into it but are there any other differences? I just had a close encounter with a coffee maker
