If you are anything like us, we absolutely love a pretty cup of coffee! Who doesn’t love designs on their coffee?! Well, this kind of art, known as latte art, is not an easy skill to master. It requires time and patience, practice and determination, it requires a good shot of espresso and perfectly steamed milk! But who’s idea was it to put milk drawings on top of a shot of espresso?! Well, the first place to be known for creating this concept is said to be the country of Italy, however the US is given the credit for making this idea go mainstream in the late 1980’s. I will attach a link so that you can see pictures of the process from cold milk to poured latte art!!
