Who started latte art?

Although milk and coffee have been consumed together in Europe for centuries, legend has it that David Schomer started the US latte art craze in the mid-1980s.

However, a guy in Italy named Luigi Lupi was doing the same thing around the same time

Step by step…

1. Hold it right.

The process begins once you've made your espresso shots, poured them into a mug, then steamed your milk. Place your mug of coffee in one hand, and tilt it slightly away from you -- this way, you'll be able to create a latte pattern without needing to move your pitcher hand as much.


2. Pour steamed milk into the center of the cup. Take the pitcher in your free hand, hold it about an inch above the cup and pour the milk into the center of the cup. Pour steadily and slowly.

3. Drop the pitcher closer to the cup; start pouring faster. Gently move the pitcher closer to the cup, and tip it with your thumb to slightly speed up the pour.

4. Wiggle pitcher. Toggle the pitcher gently and fluidly back and forth to begin creating a zig-zag pattern.


5. Untilt the cup, slow down, raise the pitcher a half an inch, and finish.

Back the pitcher toward the edge of the cup that is closest to you while untilting the cup. Slow down your pour slightly, raise the pitcher about a half an inch above the flat cup, and drizzle a small stream of milk back across the center of the cup to finish the rosetta pattern.

Keep practicing these steps, and you'll be a master latte artist in no time.
