Barista Secrets: Creative Coffee at Home

by Ryan Soeder Author and Kohei Matsuno Author

Latte art includes so much more than the simple foam heart—though you'll learn how to make that in this book along with some far, far more fancy coffee and milk concoctions. In these pages, learn to craft extremely artistic coffee beverages at home, using methods like etching, free pouring, stencils, colorwork, 3D foam sculpture, and more. Some of the creations in here really defy belief. Whether your goal is to wow your partner, explore a new art form, or win barista competitions, you'll learn some cool techniques and get a ton of creative ideas here. Includes five stencils you can pull out of the book and use, plus a ton of photos of artistic coffee concoctions.
