Revealing the Art in Your Cup: A Guide to Latte Art in Nepal

Nepal, a land renowned for its breathtaking mountains and rich cultural heritage, is also embracing a new kind of artistry: coffee art! Yes, you heard that right. The humble cup of Joe is transforming into a canvas for baristas to express their creativity through latte art.

What is latté art?

Latte art is the technique of making complex designs on the surface of a latte using steamed milk. This silky microfoam, when poured with a practiced hand, can form beautiful patterns like hearts, rosettas, swans, and even 3D latte art!

Why Latte Art Matters in Nepal

The Nepalese coffee scene is booming, with cosy cafes popping up everywhere. As customers become more discerning, the demand for visually appealing and expertly crafted coffee drinks is rising. Mastering latte art is not just about aesthetics; it’s a skill that showcases a barista’s dedication, precision, and understanding of coffee.

From Beginner to Latte Art Master: Your Guide

Creating latte art requires two key ingredients: perfectly steamed milk and a steady pouring technique. Here’s a breakdown to get you started:

Pouring with Precision:

Our expert trainers will guide you through various pouring techniques like the “free pour” and the “wiggle technique” to create latte art designs like hearts and rosettas.
