Cafe latte is essentially the perfect combination of espresso and milk. If the “enjoyer” is not very connoisseur, it will be very common to confuse the taste of Latte with Cappuccino because both have 3 basic ingredients: espresso, hot milk and milk foam. However, in Cappuccino, the amount of hot milk can be equivalent to milk foam, while in Cafe Latte, it contains 1/3 espresso, 1/3 heated milk and 1/3 milk foam.
You can make coffee latte with flavors like caramel, hazelnut or chocolate (with chocolate, switch to cafe mocha), you just need to add a little caramel, hazelnut or chocolate syrup (about 5-10ml of syrup). .
In Asian or North American countries, latte is associated with Asian teas. Coffee and tea shops in the country serve other versions of latte such as Latte Matcha, chai latte.
If you only make a regular cup of coffee latte, it does not require too much in the way of brewing, but it is the way to shape the latte more vividly and the simple way to make the Cafe Latte more lively.
There are two main types of Latte Art drawing: free pouring (drawing is created during pouring) and engraving (using tools to create drawings after pouring milk foam). Free pouring is more popular because it requires less time to make. In the art of free pouring, the most popular is the way to shape the heart and the way to shape the rose, shape the fern. The heart shape is more popular and is used a lot for Macchiato or Capuchino cups.
The heart-shaped pouring technique is considered quite simple because you just need to master the pouring speed and be a little skillful to move back and forth the milk foam to help shape the heart.
Practicing well the skill of pouring hearts will help you master the pouring speed and master the operation to create the desired drawings. From this technique you can practice pouring other shapes such as leaves, tulips, swans, etc.
