I get a latte art lesson from the barista at Demitasse Cafe in Hollywood.
It’s funny; since my decision to quit diet soda I’ve been drinking coffee again – just a little sip here and there (Creme Brûlée Cappuccino hello). We spend so much time in cafes, I figured it would be fun to do a latte art lesson at one.
Demitasse has several locations in Los Angeles – we went to the one in Hollywood, within walking distance of The Arclight.
Brantly showed me how to make a double shot of espresso and a perfect latte. You can watch the whole video on Facebook Live. Did you know they make Barista Milk?!? Apparently it is lightly homogenized for stability in making the tiny bubbles you need for foam art like this.
Yeah, so Brantly made these gorgeous tulips, and I made that…thing on the right…
Someone on Instagram said it reminded them of The Scream by Edvard Munch. So I guess I DID do something super artistic?
