How to make a Latte



Extra Pointers
– The video uses a 20oz pitcher, 10oz cup, whole milk and a double shot espresso
– Lattes can range from 1:3 to 1:X espresso to milk ratio since a latte is just a reference to an espresso with steamed milk. Most commonly, lattes are made with ~1:4 espresso to milk ratio.
– Social media has perpetuated that filling up the cup to the rim is the way to go with lattes. Personally, I like to give around 1/2cm room in the cup so it is less spill prone. I’ve seen too many lattes bite the dust after being filled too high…
– Properly foamed milk is half the battle of good latte art. It’s important to not only add the right amount of microfoam but also incorporate that foam throughout the pitcher with a whirlpool motion.

  1. This feels like it's useful for a very small amount of people. Either you know nothing and this video is insufficient, or you already know how to make a latte and this video just tells you what you already know. Nice pouring tho ❤

  2. Can designs work with plant-based milks as well? I have a family history of Cancer so need to avoid the estrogen and BLV in dairy. Thanks for sharing

  3. Every one IS talking about steaming milk , IS the more important thing , but non one IS talking about thé milk itself , i only have UHT milk to use hère in my country , it refuses to art xD

  4. I went to Israel, they have zero idea what Latte is. What Latte macchiato is. Everything they know is cappuccino. When I asked for latte macchiato, the barista woman gave me the I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about face. The manager said: “he wants cappuccino.” God I hate the Middle East.

  5. OR YOUR JUST GOOD WITH EYE HAND COORDINATION AND THE PRETTY DESIGNS ON TOP OF THE ESPRESSO COMES NATURALLY. IT'S ACTUALLY PRETTY EASY AND CAN BE PERFECTED BETWEEN THE 5TH TO 10TH CUP IF YOU REMAIN FOCUSED. GIVE IT A TRY EVERYONE AND YOU'LL SEE YOUR SMARTER THAN YOU THOUGHT ! IT'S ACTUALLY PRETTY EASY DEPENDING OF COURSE ON HOW DIFFICULT OR EASY YOUR DESIGN IS. BEST WISHES EVERYONE !
