Before making better latte art, What equipment do you need?

The art of coffee lacing does not require much equipment, but here are some basic items for everyone:

★ A coffee machine that can make espresso.

★ Milk frother - you can choose the basic model, or you can choose more expensive within your own ability to pay.

It will be used to steam steaming milk, froth, and make lattes and cappuccinos, babyccino. You can buy a fully functional coffee machine with steaming wand, but you can also use a basic foamer to achieve the same effect.

★ Pouring jug - used to pour in milk from espresso. Such as some good brand milk jugs like Ada Crew, BaristaGear, BaristaSpace.

★ Etching tool - You can use any tool that can be engraved, such as the end of a teaspoon handle, a small awl for woodwork, a cocktail bar, or better with an latte art pen.

The Art Of Pour: An Interview With "Coffee Art" Author Dhan Tamang

Hey Dhan, thanks for speaking with us. Can you tell our readers a little bit about how you got into latte art?

Dhan: I have been making coffee since 2007, so coming up on 11 years. When I started making coffee—with chocolate syrup—I used to draw just on the top of hot chocolates and mochas and I noticed that the customers’ reactions were priceless. I’ve always believed that keeping customers satisfied and meeting their expectations is the key for any successful business. In fact, I was unfamiliar with anything about latte art at that time.

Gradually my curiosity and questions developed regarding what would happen if I were able to create some wonderful coffee art just like in the hot chocolates and mochas. Then I started to search on the internet, and luckily there were materials on latte art and I commenced learning the techniques and skills all from YouTube. I’ve never been trained from any other latte artist, so massive thanks to YouTube for being my instructor.

What skill level of latte artist is your book written for?

The fundamental part of this book is that it targets all levels of coffee artist, from very basic to advanced levels (black belt level). It includes 60 incredible coffee art designs with easy-to-follow and entirely demonstrated instructions for all skill levels.

You include many designs of your own creation in the book, many that you used in World Latte Art competitions. Which ones are you most proud of?

Overall, I’m very proud of all of the designs, but there are some of my favorites in the books: the Dragon, the Jumping Dolphin, and the Unicorn.

It is a very good book for making Better Coffee Latte Art.
