Singaporeans love the taste of coffee, but another aspect of coffee that completes the coffee-drinking experience is great latte art. Not only is it a visual cue of the barista’s skill, but it also makes the coffee-drinking experience that much better.
The thing is you don’t have to spend loads of money on coffee art or latte art workshops and classes. With the right equipment and a little practice, you can perfect your latte art-making skills right at home.
PRACTICE WITH YOUR VERY OWN ESPRESSO MACHINE
The key to making great latte art doesn’t just lie in the class you attend, but it’s in the coffee machine. You’re not going to get far if you don’t have the right crema to build from. Besides, you don’t want your beautiful latte tasting like it was brewed overnight.
The good news is you aren’t short on choices when it comes to choosing the right coffee machine for you. De’Longhi provides a diverse selection of coffee-making machines, some even with a built-in burr grinder. The important thing is however you find a machine that not only meets your budget but also expresses your personality.
An espresso machine of your choice will give you a solid foundation to work from. But we’re not done. Latte art is a careful balance of many variables. To maximise your chances of success, you’re going to need to make sure every step of the coffee-making process is close to perfection.
Start with the right beans. Because good beans translate to great crema.
Like most skills, it’ll take a little practice before you get to where you want. But when you have the right tools by your side, you’re already one step closer to reaching your goals. Ultimately, the trick is to start small and master the fundamentals of latte art – so don’t be afraid of practicing on a few hearts before moving on to the coveted rosetta.
And if you need that extra push to get you started, consider getting in touch with a professional. De’Longhi helps you do just that by connecting you with your very own live coffee advisor.

What type of coffee machine is ideal for creating latte art?
It is easiest for you to make latte art if you have an espresso machine since it’s much easier for you to steam the milk. In addition to having an espresso machine, it is also recommended for you to make latte art with a milk frothing jug.
Does De’Longhi conduct latte art workshops and classes in Singapore?
Unfortunately, we do not have latte art or coffee art classes and workshops available at the moment. However, you can always sign up for a 1-on-1 personal session with our coffee advisors and they will provide you with tips and advice to perfect your latte art skills.
