How to Pour a Latte Art Rippled Heart

Learn how to make a rippled heart design on your coffee in this Howcast video about latte art.


So we're building these skills in stages and the next line we're going to pour is the rippled heart. So first we poured the monk's head, which was the solid dot, then we added the draw through, which turned the monk's head into a heart, and now we're going to add a ripple effect, by using a pendulum effect with the milk and the pitcher.

We're going to shake the pitcher just slightly, more focusing on moving the milk in the pitcher than the pitcher itself. You'll see what I mean here in a minute. All right, here's the pour. So again, raise the liquid in the cup, break the stream, and this time we're going to shake the pitcher, just a little bit to add these ripples and then pick up and draw through.

There's the rippled heart.
