Why do we try different coffee shops and not sticking to only one shop? Is it because the price, the quality, ambiance, customer service or is it because how they present their coffee? If you asked me my answer is all of the above. Most of the time our reasons why we drink coffee is for energy booster, and for some they love to drink coffee it is because of the art behind making every cup of coffee.

The art of making a perfect cup of coffee lies on the quality of your ingredient. Keep in mind that this will depend on the right combinations, consistency of the milk and the quality of the crema – and this art has perfected already by the baristas.

This is one of the classics, there is no better way to present your coffee lattes than visually layering the ingredient in a clear glass. Here’s how to do it

  1. Prepare a clear tall glass.
  2. Preheat your glass before pouring the steamed milk with a little foam. The foam should be resting beautifully on top of the milk.
  3. Next is preparing your Espresso, it should be preheated again before slowly pouring it down on the glass. To get the best result, you should slowly pour the espresso into the internal wall of the glass, use the back of your spoon for assistance when pouring the espresso to have a good control when pouring. The slowly you make, the better the effect. Your espresso should rest just below your foamed milk and on top of the steamed milk creating an almost Guinness effect.

A visual latte always looks impressive, that is why people loves them. Most of the time people buy of what they see, and lattes look yummier when beautifully presented.

Americano

Americano is a very simple coffee variation and simple in presentation too, but the trick here is you need to get the right coffee aroma that makes this coffee so lingering and intriguing. The taste doesn’t matter but the presentation does. In presenting your Americano always add your espresso to a water. Remember to always preheat your cups when doing coffee presentations. When adding your espresso to the water in a preheated cup in will allow the coffee to infuse with the water and the crema rest on top. When you do this slowly with proper control when mixing all the ingredient it will create a perfect aroma that makes the coffee not just intriguing but more flavorsome.

These are simple art ways that you can at home and share with your friends to make your coffee extra especial.
