Here are the easy steps to do so at home without any coffee machine. Learn Tricks to make latte art at home without coffee machine.
In order to Learn Tricks to make latte art at home without coffee machine. Follow the mentioned steps:
Creating Microfoam is the most important thing to take care of while making latte art
To create microfoam milk, you will need the following:
- 1 cup of milk, put it in a microwave-safe glass (you may use a measuring glass pitcher)
- A milk frother (optional) or a Jar
- Stainless Steel Pitcher( if you dont have it its ok)
Heating the milk
- We need to heat the milk before frothing it. When using a steamer, cold milk is used and you do the frothing and the heating together.
- Make sure its not too hot, it wont make foam then, if it is too cold it will be too foamy (keep the temp. between 60-70°C)
- Using a microwave: First heat the milk for 50 secs, wait for 3 mins, then heat for 20 secs, wait 3 mins, then heat for another 20 secs, wait for 3 minutes and heat for a last 20 seconds.
Use strongly brewed coffee from an espresso shot, not diluted with any water. You can start with about 1/3 cup espresso, but this is up to you.
Pour milk into the jar. Fill no more than halfway. Screw the lid on tightly, and shake the jar as hard as you can until the milk is frothy and has roughly doubled in volume, 30 to 60 seconds.
You are done! Now you have your silky micro foam milk.
- Tilt your cup to one side so that, when you start pouring your frothed milk, it goes underneath the espresso.
- Once your cup is about 3/4-full, you begin to see the milk form a blob on top of the espresso. Pour slowly until the single blob gets larger.
- Once you get toward the top of the cup, lift the pitcher up and push it through the blob of milk, creating the intent of the heart.
- Remember to hold the handle throughout the entire process, so that you are not touching the parts of the mug from which people will be drinking.
Use a tooth pick, coco powder/syrup, and your creativity. Enjoy your latte.
Latte art requires first producing espresso with cream and micro foam, and then combining these to make latte art. When you start pouring, pour from a distance (~15cm high from the cup), this will make the frothed milk drop below the espresso, gets colored by the espresso and then floats on top it. This is what creates the espresso colored surface.
