Latte Art - My Barista Training

Last week all of a sudden I decided to learn coffee making . I booked a class called Barista training and Latte Art. Excited and all set to learn to make coffees I reached the class. We were about 14 people in there . It was fun and we made as many coffees as we could and also learned coffee art ( Latte Art). I tried but did not come up with any best results.Well a lot more practice might help but anyways here are few of them which look tolerable .







This was supposed to be a heart but turned out to be something else. LOL

i like the flower designs and the rest. it's so amazing!

with the last photo, that's the cutest. it looks like a heart though if the one who will see will consider it as a heart.

but if the one who will see it is a green minded, i guess it will be considered as green thing. heheheh ya know!

thanks for sharing ur photos.

u make my day!

That is super cool. My Aunt did classes for cakes but I never heard of latte art classes. They're very pretty; if these are your first tries I'm excited to see what you can make at the end of your class.

Wooot! Woot! Your coffee looks so HOT! And I don't mean literally. :D

The 6th picture looks like it has floating marshmallows in it. ;)

I have a request though. Can you make a video demonstarting how to do those latte art? I'd love to make one at home, too. I used to manage a coffee shop and I wish i knew how to do it then. :D
