What milk is best for latte art?
If you’re after the best possible latte art, we’d recommend using whole milk with a high fat content, but for a dairy-free alternative, go for a barista-specific oat milk (such as Oatly’s Baritsa or Minor Figures) that will hold its own on top of your espresso. And as with everything, practice makes perfect.

In the name of contrast and symmetry, latte art creates a 360° ring of pure crema that may look nice but isn’t exactly mellow in flavour. But without latte art, the typically bitter and pungent espresso crema combines with the milk to create a rich, intense flavor.
When making a latte what goes in first?
