Love is in the air and I loooovee lattes! Seriously, I crave them. There is nothing better than a well made latte with just the right thickness, delicious coffee and of course a milk mustache!
Last year I had to pleasure of attending a Latte Art competition, yes there is such a thing. Several professional barista’s were judged on different components of their latte art, it was serious business. I was impressed with how the baristas truly loved their profession, this was not just a get through college kind of job for them. I was also beyond impressed with their latte art skills. Before the competition spectators were permitted to participate in a workshop and give latte art a shot. Let me tell you, it is so much harder than it looks! In my several attempts to create a rosette, I ended up with blob after blob after blob. It was so much fun, I didn’t care plus blobs taste pretty darn good!
I immediately knew I had to take my new-found knowledge home with me and of course put a Keurig Kcup spin on it! I tried several different ways to create an at home latte and finally perfected it. It is so nice to be able to enjoy a coffee-house quality latte on a whim with no special equipment. I made a short video to show you how (I am not a videographer and I shot this with my phone people so don’t judge, it gets the job done):
