As a specialty coffee brand and professional baristas, we know how important it is to serve quality coffee using the customers desired choice be it cows’ milk or plant-based. There is, however, one issue when it comes to milk alternatives – it behaves differently to cows’ milk making Latte Art more difficult. As more people choose a dairy-free option, we feel challenged to deliver a perfect cup against the odds. With the Minor Figures Oat Mi*k though you don’t have this worry as it’s made by baristas for baristas to help you deliver a perfect coffee creation every time. Here are our tips to help you create your own Latte Art using this barista product.
What Will You Need
Quality Oat Milk (We use Minor Figures Oat M*lk)
Espresso machine and a steam wand
Stainless steel pitcher
Steaming The M*lk
Pour oat milk into the pitcher, put the thermometer inside and place the steaming wand at the bottom. Slowly raise until the wand is about 1 cm below the milk surface.
Once the milk reaches 37°C, angle the wand allowing some air so the milk swirls around in the pitcher. This will help create ‘microfoam’.
Continue the process until the milk reaches 65°C, then remove the wand.
Swirl and tap the pitcher aggressively on the table to eliminate larger bubbles and achieve a creamy consistency.
Pouring Down: A Heart
1. Use the coffee machine to prepare espresso and begin adding milk within 10 seconds.
2. Start by pouring milk from about 3 cm above the cup and aim for the middle of the cup.
3. Once the cup is 80% full, push the pitcher downwards until it’s just above the latte level. This will push the milk foam to the surface.
4. Gently move the pitcher from left to right to create two halves of the heart and finish by guiding the pitcher across the middle of your design to create the point at the bottom.
