Latte Art = Skill
Once latte drinkers get their drink, they are more often than not, greeted with a beautiful piece of artwork in their cup. Some though may not even notice the artwork and start drinking while chatting away or scrolling through their phone. If this is the case, don’t be surprised if your barista is looking at you with sad eyes. This is not because you are drinking their artwork, which is inevitable, but that you never appreciated the time and skill put into the art.
Alliston Burkard, a retail district manager of a cafe in Chicago, told Mashed that, "Just like with a painter or sketch artist, honing the art of making designs in coffee from steamed milk takes time… lots of time, and many hours of practice." She goes on to say that even the steaming of the milk takes skill as it needs to have a perfect consistency, aeration and temperature.
