Kirsty's Barista Journey: Week 8

Kirsty's Barista Journey: Week 8
Written by
Kirsty Evans

Following my SCA training, I have become motivated to polish up some of my coffee skills, in particular latte art. I'm used to watching my colleagues produce seamless latte art every time I take a trip to the coffee machine. Each time a design is made I watch in awe at how effortlessly they create the designs, it's made to look so simple but that couldn't be further from the truth!

This week I decided I would focus on Latte art to try and improve my skills, I went down to the coffee machine for an hour on Wednesday and practiced non stop, I must have gone through a fair few pints of milk! After a few days of preparation I managed to create some designs I was fairly happy with, I guess what they say is definitely true, practice makes perfect.

During the final weeks of my internship i'm going to focus on improving my latte art with the aim of creating more intricate designs.
