Cafe Margaux’s Insider Tips for Making Beautiful Latte Art at Home

At Cafe Margaux, we believe that the art of coffee is just as important as the taste. That’s why we’re excited to share our tips and tricks for creating fancy latte art at home. With a little practice and the right tools, you’ll be impressing your friends and family in no time.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating fancy latte art:

  1. Start with a clean slate. Make sure your cup and equipment are clean and dry, as any remaining milk or foam will affect the final result.

  2. Steam your milk to the desired temperature and consistency. For latte art, you’ll want your milk to be around 150-160 degrees Fahrenheit and have a velvety texture with small bubbles.

  3. Pour the milk into your cup of espresso. Hold the pitcher about an inch above the surface of the espresso and pour in a steady stream.

  4. Use a toothpick or latte art tool to create designs on the surface of the milk. Start by making simple shapes like hearts and leaves, then work your way up to more intricate designs like rosettas and tulips.

  5. Experiment with different pouring techniques and milk temperatures to find the right consistency for your design.

  6. Finally, take a photo and share it with your friends and family!
